Wouldn’t it be nice to use standard keyboard shortcuts, such as Ctrl+B for bold, for text editing in LabVIEW? If you have LabVIEW 2013, you can. Just add the following token to your INI file: QuickBold=True
Now, whenever you’re editing text on the front panel or block diagram of a VI, Ctrl+B will bold/unbold text.
Keep in mind that this QuickBold option is only activated while editing a text field, so you can still use Ctrl+B for removing broken wires.
