I'm trying to use the asterisk character (*) in a Google Plus post. The problem is that the asterisk character is used in Google+ to make text bold.
*text* would make text.
In this question, someone manages to use them in regular texts, but I want to put one in bold, like this:
this text should be bold but with a * in itself
This doesn't seem to work because the * in the bold phrase ends it being bold.
I tried escaping with a
\, but it didn't work. How can we use a bold asterisk in Google+?
