Rich Text Formatting in Messages

When creating messages you can apply basic formatting, such as bolding, italics, lists, and maybe the most useful—links. In addition to the formatting toolbar at the top of the editing window, the rich text editor also supports the following shortcuts:

  • Bold: Control B
  • Italicize: Control I
  • Underline: Control U
  • Create a bulleted list: Control Shift 8
  • Create a numbered list: Control Shift 7
  • Create a link: Control K
  • Add a line break: Shift Enter

Note, on macOS, replace the Control key in these examples with the Command key.
