A little formatting help

A little formatting help

Postby dave6369 » Thu Nov 11, 2010 9:53 pm


Fantastic program. I love what you have done!

I am using excel to create my flashcards, and I am able within excel to italicize or bold certain words or phrases that I want to emphasize. However, the formatting doesn't appear on my iphone when I download the file. What am I doing wrong?

Thank you again for a great app!!

Hi Dave,

Unfortunately, Excel formatting does not copy over. In order to do this basic formatting, you need to use html tags in your text, for example
<b>This will be bold</b> (notice different beginning and ending tags)

See http://orangeorapple.com/Flashcards/#formattext for more info.

Sorry I don't have an easier way at this time.
