Text Formatting

It is possible to apply basic formatting to text in fields in which multiple lines of text can be entered.

The sections below describe these options.

Inline styles

bold
Place text between two asterisks.

**Bold**

italic
Place text between two underscores.

__Italic__

underline
Place text between plus signs.

+Underline+

monospace
Place text between backquotes.

`Monospace`

Blocks

The options below can be used to create blocks such as lists, quotes and code blocks. Make sure you separate a block from other content by adding a blank line above and below the block.

numbered list
Start each line with 1. to make a numbered list. It does not matter which number you specify; the numbers are corrected automatically when the list is displayed. Nested lists can be created by indenting three spaces so that the nested items line up with the start of the text of the higher-level items.
    Follow these steps:

    1. Log in
    1. Open a new record
    1. Enter the following values:
       1. Value A
       1. Value B
    1. Press the Save button

    Result: the record is saved.
bulleted list
Start each line with an asterisk to make a bulleted list. Nested lists can be created by indenting two spaces, so that the nested items line up with the start of the text of the higher-level items.
    Follow these steps:

    * Log in
    * Open a new record
    * Enter the following values:
      * Value A
      * Value B
    * Press the Save button

    Result: the record is saved.
quote
Start each line with an angle bracket to make a quote.
     As someone once said:

     > Some say that dogs are as smart as people,
     > but some may find that offensive.

     We will probably never know if that's true.
code block
Start and end a code block with three backquotes on an otherwise empty line. Be sure to include a blank line above and below the code block.
     To convert an email address to lowercase:

     ```
     var $email = $extension.find('#email_address');
     $email.change(function() {
       $email.val($email.val().toLowerCase());
     });
     ```

     This paragraph comes after the code block.

Other

horizontal rule
Place three hyphens on an otherwise empty line with a blank line above and below.
    This results in a horizontal rule:

    ---

    This paragraph comes after the horizontal rule.
hyperlink
Use the pattern [text](url) to create a link.
