    How so you cross out text?

    Discussion in 'Support & Feedback' started by cazann34, Dec 12, 2012.

    How do you cross out text on this site? I have googled this and have tried some of the suggestions but none of them seem to work. It would save me time when I'm reviewing others work, and think a word/s are unnecessary and should be removed. At the moment I've putting <remove and replace with> which is rather time consuming.

    Thanks for your help.

    To cross out text, use "s" surrounded by brackets.

    Does it work?

    Thanks Oz! I was doing it wrong, I was using these( ) instead of [] these.

    Thanks again! No, honestly thanks

    If you ever see something like that on the site that you don't know how to do, you can always just click "Reply with Quote", then you can see all the HTML formatting used! Hope that helps somehow... :)

    There is a tool icon in the advanced editor. It looks like ABC :)
