I have a text in div tag as "Robot Framework tutorials"

I wanted to highlight only "Robot" and mark it as bold using Robot framework.

Can anyone help me how to highlight the text ?

You can try selecting this text to highlight it. For example:

enter image description here

  1. Focus on the text you want to highlight
  2. Divide it into substrings and find which substring you want to highlight
  3. Select the substring to highlight it

  • @Uday, from what I can recall, there is no established keyword that enables you to do it by default, but you can add your own keyword to Robot framework.
