We've built our text editor to support a variety of markdown shortcuts. Those shortcuts help to format text while typing, keeping you from going back-and-forth between your keyboard and mouse.
For example, typing "# Introduction" would start the line as an H1 header as you type the word Introduction.
We support both block and inline shortcuts. The markdown shortcuts we currently support are:
Header one (# ...)
Header two (## ...)
Header three (### ...)
Numbered lists (1. ...)
Unordered lists (- ...) or (* ...)`
Regular code block (``` ...)
Horizontal rule (---)
Inline code block (
Bold text (**...**) or (__...__)
Italic text (*...*) or (_..._)
Strikethrough text (~~...~~)
Underline (select text and click
Please Note: make sure to hit [space] or [enter] to complete the auto markdown conversion.
