Make bold in trello

Hi,

in order to format a text as bold, we generally use Ctrl-B. Unfortunatly Firefox open bookmarks lateral bar when doing so. It is for example the case in trello or even here this field! Is there any solution to this problem?

Chosen solution

Hmm, Trello's keyboard shortcut list doesn't mention any formatting shortcuts: https://trello.com/shortcuts Does Ctrl+B work in other browsers?

It looks like Trello uses Markdown: https://help.trello.com/article/821-using-markdown-in-trello

It may be that you need an add-on or user script that will enable you to insert **BOLD** markdown when you press Ctrl+B. Not sure whether one is out there.

(By the way, this field I'm typing in now is not coded to detect/intercept Ctrl+B. It's just a dumb textarea box with no awareness of formatting.)
