Here are the simple ways to format the text: For Bold, add asterisks to either side of your text, e.g. *bold*, while for italics, add underscores either side, e.g. _italics_, and for strikethrough, add tildes either side, e.g. ~tilde~. Users can also combine the new formats such as _*bolditalics*_. And to view these formatted texts, other person also needs the updated version.
