Bold type

Use bold type to highlight the name of a UI element in a paragraph or task step. You don’t need to bold these elements in task or step results.

Use bold type to format the following elements:

  • Menu items
  • Splexicon links
  • UI page elements in paragraphs or task steps, such as fields, panels, windows, and dialog boxes
  • User input

Don’t use bold type or strong tags for emphasis.

For a full list of formatting rules for commonly documented elements, including all of the elements that take bold type, see Formatting reference.
