I was just wondering if there is a way to format text inside the slido questions.  For example, if I’d like something to appear as bolded and underlined, is there a way to do this?

Thanks in advance!

Hi @TWilliams,

Unfortunately, we don’t support special formatting right now. 

I’ll make sure to submit this as a feature request to our product team! 

 

Would you mind sharing a little bit more about your use case, how and why you’d like to format text in questions? 

Thanks a lot! :) 

Hi @Alex thanks for your response.

We do a live quiz with the participants and the facilitators sometimes like to include things like bolding and underlining to specify certain parts of the questions.  For example “Which of the the following are NOT  examples of ….” in order to help the participants understand that the question is looking for things that do not apply rather than do apply.

Ah I see! This is quite neat - I can definitely see how the formatting could help in this use case. 

I’ll pass on your insights to our product team!

Thanks a lot!

Hi @Alex 

I would like to support the request for formatting of text in questions. I need to format some text as code so it would be great if MarkDown is available for formatting questions.

Hi @Jannetta,

Thank you for the additional feedback - I’ll make sure to pass this on to our product team! :)

I agree.  I also would appreciate some elementary text formatting functionality when creating poll / survey questions.
