Conditional Formatting based on a cell text formatting
Hello hive mind. I am familiar with IF statements and Conditional Formatting, but I am not seeing a way with either of those for the followng.
I would like to set a Conditional Formatting Rule to highlight a row to a certain color if the text in a particular cell is in bold.
There does not seem to be a way with Cond. Form. to have bold as the criteria by which you set a rule so I tried to use an IF statement by creating a check box column and putting a logic statement that says (basically) IF the text in that cell is bold, check this box so I could then do Cond. Formatting to change the row color if the box was checked. But there does not seem to be a way to put into words the idea of "is bold" as a criteria.
Any thoughts would be apreciated.
