When trying to make a word as BOLD, the editor toolbar doesn't worked as intended.

I have experienced this several times by pressing the "B" icon button on the editor toolbar, however that didn't work either.

We need example and way to reproduce otherwise best we can do is guessing. – Shadow Wizard May 28 '13 at 8:48
May I Know Why down vote..?? Its what have i experienced. – Jyothu May 28 '13 at 8:52
It's already been explained in the comments. – BoltClock's a Unicorn May 28 '13 at 8:57
You're a software developer according to your profile. If you received a bug report that simply said "sometimes bold doesn't work" what would your reaction to be? – Flexo May 28 '13 at 8:57
The downvotes (at least my own) are because you ignore comments and refuse to help up help you. – Shadow Wizard May 28 '13 at 9:18

I guess you refer to your lastest answer and you tried to mark a word which is part of the quoted text?

In such case it indeed won't work, as you marked the text as code which means whatever you put there is shown as-is including the ** used to mark as bold.

This is by design of course and to "solve" it mark such text as quote instead then you can bold words.

It's wrong to use code formatting for something that isn't code anyway. – Juhana May 28 '13 at 9:38
+1 for actually being able to pull out some meaning from this impossibly vague question :P – Doorknob May 29 '13 at 17:03
@Doorknob just a guess and I'm really puzzled why the OP doesn't bother to clarify... – Shadow Wizard May 29 '13 at 18:26
