If I try {\bf\it text}, it will be only italic, i.e., the \it overrides the \bf.

Similarly, it'll be only bold if I try {\it\bf text}

How do I get text that is both bold and italic?

I looked for a solution here, but only found solutions for LaTeX (using \textit{}) and that doesn't work with TeX.

  • Welcome to TeX.SX! You can help us to help you by providing the code for a small compilable document that shows your problem called MWE. Just edit your question and add missing code. – Bobyandbob Nov 15 '17 at 16:27

    @Bobyandbob a mwe would be x\bye would that really help in this case, especially as you asked for it after an answer had been posted? – David Carlisle Nov 15 '17 at 16:41
  • @DavidCarlisle yes i prefer to see always a very small mwe, so that everyone could test it (very fast). Sorry didn't see your answer. I remain convinced that this is useful. – Bobyandbob Nov 15 '17 at 16:47

    My typing is rubbish but even I can type x\bye faster than I could cut and paste it from this website. I agree that most questions are improved by a MWE but just adding stock comments to every question doesn't really help make the site seem welcoming. – David Carlisle Nov 15 '17 at 16:57
