Hello,

I am not sure if I am going to be able to make myself clear or not but I will try.

This is what I would like to accomplish.

I would like to copy someones post from a message board and make some of the lines bold and than paste it back in my response. The site I am talking about has no tools to work with. Can I paste the post to say notepad and work with it or perhaps paint ?

Thanks for your time and any help you can give me.

Without knowing the specific software and format that this 'message board' uses it's rather difficult to suggest what you do. As an example this forum uses BBcode to make the font, color, font size, bold, and italic to name few functions work. Some forum and or message boards use HTML. Without the information of knowing what the board uses to render topics and requires for special applications we would be guessing.

If you can give us some more specific information we might be able to help.

The site is facebook.

I tried Google to give you more information but I don't see the answer.



Thanks,

You can make it bold in Notepad, another text editor or Paint but when you copy/paste it will not show up as bold in the Facebook message.

If the website that you are posting to has no option for bold (or any other font changes) then it's likely that your formatting in bold won't stick when you paste it in.

All you can do is try it.
