Format poll titles with HTML

You can use HTML formatting to format the title of an activity. Here’s how:

Italics: To italicize a line use <em> before whatever you want to italicize followed by </em> (adding a / before the “em” to stop the italics).

Bold: To make a line bold use <strong> before the text you want to make bold followed by </strong> (again adding a / to return to regular font).

Line Break: To cause a new line break, ender <br> and the end of the first line. Any text after the <br> will appear on a new line.

Here’s an example:

A few things to note:

  • This only works for the activity title. Answer choices will not be affected if it’s a multiple choice poll.
  • Italics will work for all of the fonts.
  • New lines will work for any font and any activity type.
  • The Bold text will only work for the fonts Source Sans Pro and Proxima Nova because we automatically make the other fonts bold for readability purposes.
