Bold and Italic Have Arrived In WorkFlowy


January 22, 2014


Although we feel bad bankrupting all the people who bet all their savings that WorkFlowy would never get formatting (including my own dear mother (sorry Mom!)), simple formatting has arrived.

You can now use bold and italic in WorkFlowy. There are a few details I should mention: You can use the same shortcuts you normally use to start typing in bold and italic, namely, control/command+b and control/command+i. And you can highlight text and format it with those same shortcuts.

That is about it. We are hard at work trying to make WorkFlowy better for you, and we hope you enjoy bolding and italicizing your WorkFlowy documents.

Note for color lovers: We will probably let you choose colors for tags at some point, and maybe even let the tag affect formatting of the whole item. Not sure when it will happen, but we like the idea.

I believe what you published was actually very reasonable.
But, what about this? what if you composed a catchier title?
I am not suggesting your information is not solid., but suppose you added a post
title that makes people want more? I mean Bold and Italic Have Arrived In WorkFlowy – WorkFlowy is a little vanilla.
You could glance at Yahoo’s home page and watch how they create
article titles to get people interested. You might try adding a video or a related picture or two to get people excited about what you’ve written. Just my opinion, it would bring your posts a little livelier.
