I'm wondering does anyone change the text format in EMA template? Such as change text from italic type(default) to normal type...? Are kind of these changes acceptable? Thanks.

You can definitely change text formats, as long as you stay within the protected areas you're supposed to answer in. The graders would probably prefer responses to not be written in italics.

maybe i'm remembering wrong since I did this over 2 years ago at this point, but I thought it specifically said in the instructions not to use italics, probably because it's annoying for the grader to read that.
