In this tutorial, you will learn how to bold lines in google sheets.

When you’re working in Google Sheets, you may find you need to call attention to a specific line of data. For example, it might be a header row or perhaps an entry in a database that needs special attention. Whatever the reason, one quick and easy way to call attention to these lines in your spreadsheet is to make them bold. Here’s how:

Step 1

Select the row (or line) you want to bold by clicking on the row number to the left of the spreadsheet cells. The entire row will highlight to show it is selected

Step 2

Click on the black B in the toolbar above the cells

Step 3

All the values in the selected row will be formatted bold

Step 4

If you need to remove the bold formatting, simply select the row or cells you want to remove it from and click the B in the toolbar again. If they remain bold after a single click, click it once more and the bold formatting will be removed
