Usually, we use Filter function to filter the data we need or unused by specific number, text, font color or background color, but how about filter cells by italics? There is no the direct rule can filter cells by italics with Filter function, but I can introduce some tricks to solve this job easily.
In Excel, you use Find and Replace function to find all cells with italics format, then give them a different font color or background color, and use Filter function to filter them by the color.
1. select the data you want to find the cells with italics format, press Ctrl + F to open the Find and Replace dialog.
2. click Options to expand the dialog, and click Format to display Find Format dialog, under the Font tab, select Italic from the Front style list.
3. click OK, then click Find All to list all cells with italic format, then press Ctrl + A to select all found cells. See screenshots:
4. Then close the Find and Replace dialog and go to give them a background color under Home tab.
5. Select the data range and click Data > Filter. Click the Filter icon to expand the filter drop down list, click Filter by Color and select the color you have added for the italics.
Now the italics have been filtered, you can remove the background color then.
