      Sometimes we need to cut few words but also at the same time we want to show them in order to be politically correct.

    So basically, this isn’t a Gmail’re just copy and pasting.. which you can do with almost anything that isn’t necessarily accessible within the gmail editor. A trick would be how to do it inside the actual Gmail editor without using other editors like MS Word.

      I am sorry to say Deena that wont be possible. Yeah, we are just coping and pasting it, but not many people figure this out.

    STRIKETHROUGH suggestions made in this article don’t work at all. Copying and pasting doesn’t work, the strikethrough option is not offered when I right-click on the ellipse at the right, and “Alt+Shift+5” doesn’t work at all either. This comment written in May, 2022, three years after this article written. I run a high-end business-class HP notebook, updated and scanned constantly; it’s not my machine.
    Maybe G-Evil has changed Gmail’s code or formatting. I don’t know that, but I know that this article needs an update.
    You should also correct a confusing error: You wrote about the, ““More formatting options” button at the right end of the bar”, but it’s at the LEFT end.
