How to format text with Markdown

Markdown is a lightweight and easy-to-use syntax for styling text. Markdown is supported in several places in Matatask:

  • Description for a task
  • Instructions for a process

With Markdown you can control formatting words as bold or italic, adding images, and creating lists. Mostly, Markdown is just regular text with a few non-alphabetic characters:

Links : [Links](URL)
Bold : **Bold**
Italicize : *Italicize*
Strike-through : \~\~text\~\~

  • List items : * List items

Headers are set using a hash before the title.

H1 : # Header 1
H2 : ## Header 2
