Formatting your messages

Formatting your messages

Just like annotation descriptions, discussions are written in Markdown. You don’t have to learn the format to use it because writing a comment doesn’t always need formatting. However, it’s possible to use complex formatting.

Markdown basics

Markdown lets you write content with links, lists, and other styles using regular characters and punctuation marks. It doesn’t require a lot of time to learn. Here are the basics:

  • Add headers with # Title or ## Subtitle
  • Style with *Emphasize* and **Strong**: EmphasizeandStrong
  • Link with [SmartShape](https://smartshape.io): SmartShape
  • Include external images with ![Title](http://commonmark.org/help/images/favicon.png)

All the details are explained on the Markdown page on Wikipedia.
