Markdown is an easy and powerful way to format your descriptions and long text fields using simple, natural syntax.

The basics

*italic* and **bold**

An inline link: Kumu

We also support linking to elements, connections and loops (even other maps in your account) using the following format:


[link label](= selector)
[Ryan](= #ryanmohr)

Note: Make sure to remove any special characters and spaces from your element, connection or loop label and lowercase all letters ("Kumu is awesome!" would become "kumuisawesome").


[link label](#map-slug)


[link label](#map-slug/view-slug)

Note: The best way to find the "map-slug" and "view-slug" is to activate the given map and view and look at the URL in your browser. You should be able to spot it quite easily by using the above format as a guide. Then copy and paste the applicable portion.

Simply indent lines with four spaces or wrap the code with three backticks:

Green | Yellow | Red

If you are using Markdown in the Description column of a Kumu Import, you will have to use the HTML table tag rather than the usual Markdown syntax. Make sure to remove all line breaks from your HTML, or your table will render with a large white space above it.

Three or more dashes or asterisks
