I’m wanting to add formatting to the email body (bold, underline, bullet lists) using the Gmail function and I want to do that using the plain text setting not the html setting.

  1. Is this possible?
  2. How do I add formatting in the email body while in plain text (as opposed to html)

Note: if using markdown would work then that’s great I just don’t know if it’ll work

Hi @Mike_Cheney 

You will need to use the HTML setting in order to add formatting as you’ve described.

@Troy Tessalone thanks for the quick response. 

That’s what I ended up doing. I used this text to HTML formatter https://wordtohtml.net/ and then just read through the html to find the sections of the email body where I wanted to insert personalisation from previous zap steps in and that worked.
