Have you ever wanted to format your comments in Google Docs to get your point across and make it clearer?  

If so, I have great news!  You can bold, italicize and strikethrough text in a Google Doc comment with a couple easy keystrokes.

 

For bold text:

Add an asterisk on both sides of the word or sentence you wish to bold  

*BOLD*

After clicking comment, the text will appear like this:
For italicized text:

Add an underscore on both sides of the text or sentence you wish to italicize

 _italicize_

After clicking comment, the text will appear like this:
For Strikethrough text:

Add a hyphen on both sides of the text or sentence you wish to strikethrough  

-strikethrough-

After clicking comment, the text will appear like this:
For All Three

Place an asterisk, hyphen and underscore on both sides of the text or sentence, making sure each side mirrors the other.

After clicking comment, the text will appear like this:

In addition, these tricks also work in Sheets and Slides (and anywhere else that you can use Google’s commenting system).
