Assignments and Announcements

When creating an announcement on the Stream or an assignment on the Classwork page the option to bold, italicize, underline, or create bullets will be right in the description (instructions) section.

Easy Access

You can also use Control B (Command B on a Mac) to Bold text. Control I to Italicize. Control U to underline.
