Markdowns

Markdowns seem scary initially but think of them as a 'shortcut' to changing the style your text.

Bold

Italicize

Strikethrough

Underline

Font size

Lists

Align

Superscripts

Line breaks

 

Markdowns is a lightweight language with plain-text formatting used to change the styling of your text within the EdApp Authoring Tool.

Any additional styling requires Custom CSS recommended for advanced authors only.

Underline text

<u> ENTER YOUR TEXT HERE </u>

Change the font size by putting a hashtag (#) before the sentence.

Depending on how many you input, this will vary the size of the text.

You can also use the following to specify the size:

<p style="font-size: 3em;"> YOUR TEXT HERE </p>

Indent text by using a greater-than sign (>) before the sentence.

Depending on how many you put, this will vary the indentation.

Lists

Create dot style bullet points by using:

*

+

<li>

-

To create line style bullet points, use two dashes with no spaces (--).

 

Text Alignment

To left-align text:

<p align="left"> ENTER TEXT HERE </p>

To centre-align text:

<p align=“center"> ENTER TEXT HERE </p>

Some templates will automatically left align. Most templates centre align automatically.

You can’t combine alignment with font size markup.

Superscripts

Wrap the text you want to superscript like so:

Normal Text <sup>2TM</sup> 

 

Line Breaks

Depending on the slide/template you're using, sometimes hitting 'return' on your keyboard isn't available, so you can get around this by adding: <br>
