Markdown Formatting

Many text fields in QReserve support a subset of the Markdown formatting language to add styles and structure to your text. Look for the Markdown Enabled indicator in the bottom right corner of a text field to know if it is available.

Markdown Overview

Markdown is a formatting language that allows you to change the underlying HTML code of text without having to write any actual HTML code. The implementation of Markdown in QReserve is restricted to a subset of the full language to ensure security and reliability; however, it still provides a range of options for communicating information in a clear and structured manner.

Block Quotes

Use the > symbol to isolate a section of text into a blockquote.

This is normal text. > This text will > show up in a blockquote. This is normal text.
This is normal text.
This text will show up in a blockquote.
This is normal text.

Bold and Italic Text

Encase text in single asterisk * for italic text, or double, ** for bold text.

This is *italic* and this is **bold**.
This is italic and this is bold.

Headers

Headers are rendered as larger fonts as the HTML <H1> through <H6> tags and are specified with 1 through 6 leading # symbols.

###### Header 6 ##### Header 5 #### Header 4 ### Header 3 ## Header 2 # Header 1

Ordered and Unordered Lists

A list can be defined by separting the first and last items with a blank line and then an unordered starts each item with an asterisk while and ordered list starts each item with a number followed by a period (e.g. 1. 2. 3.). A sublist can be created by indenting a list item by exactly 4 spaces.

Here is an unordered list:
* Item 1 * Item 2     * Indented item 1     * Indented item 2 * Item 3

While here is an ordered list:

1. Ordered Item 1 2. Ordered Item 2 3. Ordered Item 3

Here is an unordered list:
  • Item 1
  • Item 2
    • Indented item 1
    • Indented item 2
  • Item 3

While here is an ordered list:

  1. Ordered Item 1
  2. Ordered Item 2
  3. Ordered Item 3
