Formatting options and shortcuts

The last item on the initial prompt of commands for the Simple Editor is highlight text. It serves as a reminder that when you are in the Simple Editor you can highlight a section of text to get a menu of the formatting options built in to the editor:


The options on the Highlight menu are Bold, Italics, code, header types 1-3, and links. In addition to formatting with the highlight text menu you can also use the basic keyboard shortcuts like ⌘+b for bold, ⌘+i for italics (Ctrl+ for Windows). The standard Markdown shortcuts (# Header1, ## Header2, **bold**, _italics_, etc.) can also be used in the Simple Editor window. For more information on Markdown styling see our Markdown syntax reference.
