Formatting on Mac can be a breeze if you know the right tools and techniques. In this article, we will explore various ways to format text, files, and documents on your Mac.

Whether you want to emphasize certain words, organize your files, or make your documents visually appealing, we’ve got you covered. So let’s get started!

Bold Text:
One of the simplest ways to format text on your Mac is by using bold formatting. To make a piece of text bold, simply select the desired text and press Command + B.

Alternatively, you can use the menu bar at the top of your screen and navigate to Edit > Bold. This will instantly make your text stand out.

Underlined Text:
If you want to underline specific text on your Mac, it’s just as easy as making it bold. Select the desired text and press Command + U.

You can also go to Edit > Underline from the menu bar. Underlining can be useful when highlighting important information.


Organizing information is crucial when creating content or taking notes. Fortunately, Mac offers an easy way to create lists using HTML tags like


  • . Simply start with an opening
      tag to indicate an unordered list and then use

    • tags for each list item.

      Here’s an example:

      • First item
      • Second item
      • Third item

      This will create a bullet-pointed list with three items. Feel free to add or remove items as per your requirement.

      Nested Lists:

      Sometimes, you may need more organized lists with sub-items or nested lists. You can achieve this by placing another set of


      • tags within an existing list item.

        Here’s an example:

        • First item
        • Second item
          • Nested item 1
          • Nested item 2
        • Third item

        This will create a nested list with a sub-list under the second item.


        Subheaders are essential for breaking up content into sections and making it easier to read. You can use HTML heading tags like


        , etc., to create subheaders.

        For example:

        Main Section

        Subsection 1

        Subsection 2

        Using subheaders helps readers navigate through your content and understand its structure.

        Now that you know how to format text, create lists, and add subheaders on your Mac using HTML styling elements, you can make your documents more visually engaging and organized. Experiment with these techniques to enhance the presentation of your content and make it stand out. Happy formatting!
