Right-click on the text you want to strike out Choose 'inspect element' The inspector will bring up that text - right click on it and choose 'edit html' Wrap the text you want to strike out with ...

Just added last night. It will add a strike through button in Chrome or Firefox: https://chrome.google.com/webstore/detail/strikethrough/peahilnfgiacdkackbnbdbgkkjaghool Note: you need to use the Gmail pop-out to get the strike through feature.

There's something I just found. It's related to posting YouTube videos. Let's say you are posting a video and you want to make attention at particular part of it. Just write hours:minutes and Google Plus will automatically create direct link to the video frame. "9:15 - blabla" will be linked to http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=youvideoID#t=9m15s And yes - ...

I suggest you should simply vote for this feature and expect it ...

No GMail does not currently have such a feature. BUT there is a really weird/annoying workaround if you want it that bad. Google allows you to have a signature. You can configuration the signature in the General settings. What you could do is put one letter in the signature with the formatting you want. When you compose a new email that would mean you must ...

Thereafter, specify this as your formula: [<10]_(###0.00_);_(#0_) What it means is, if the cell value is less than 10 then format the cell in ...

If you're talking about Special:Book, then that comes from the Collection extension. That in turn uses several backends for generating the various formats. For PDF, the PDF Writer extension is used: The PDF Writer uses the Python Reportlab libraries to generate PDF based on a DOM derived from parsing mediawiki-markup using the mwlib parser.

The following formula does the job (tested with U.S. and Russia as locales, where separators are different): =IFERROR(VALUE(SUBSTITUTE(A2, ",", ".")), VALUE(SUBSTITUTE(A2, ".", ","))) Explanation: IFERROR returns the first argument unless it throws an error, in which case it returns the second. The first argument of IFERROR is the result of converting ...

GitHub flavored markdown supports Using triple back ticks to fence code blocks, which lets you wrap code blocks more easily than indenting every line. Standard Markdown converts text with four spaces at the beginning of each line into a code block; GFM also supports fenced blocks.

Only admins can post announcements; and replies to announcements cannot be formatted. You can also format text in Word documents and upload them to Yammer; not quite the same thing though is it?

In Yammer groups, if you post an "Announcement" you get the option to give it some basic formatting, but if you post an "Update" then it's in unformatted text. So, yes, there is a way to do it after all.

Life Hacker has an article about Google Drive extensions that mentions Drive Notepad, which claims to do plain text editing in Google Drive. I found your question because I'm looking for the same kind of tool, though for different reasons. I haven't tried Drive Notepad yet, but I'm heading over now to give it a shot. I also just discovered that WriteBox ...
