how to make line breaks, bold text, italic text, etc?
I find it hard to get a good text layout while writing a reply on the discussion boards. Sometimes it automatically removes returns (line breaks) that I put to make schemes more organized.
Also I do not know how to make text bold or italic. Or how to make text bigger or smaller.
Does somebody have tips for me?
Thanks! I will use it responsibly. I like helping Spanish duolingo users with their English (good chance for me to improve my Spanish), now I can at least control the layout of the post a bit.
Here are some of the things I know.
Hitting return/enter twice will create a line break. Using it once is often ignored.
- You can make a list by starting a line with a dash (still need to hit return twice). Might also work with an asterisk.
Asterisks around a phrase make it either italic one on each side or bold two on each side
You can create a
red box around a phrase with an accent grave on each side.
Thanks guys!!! Those are some really good tips.
this is a quote... hopefully
quote within a quote and it even has two lines
Hey bro, I heard you like quotes, so I put a quote inside a quote so you can read a quote while you're reading a quote.
*this is italic *
They should probably disallow some of these formattings like the bigger fonts.
Edited my original comment again. You may delete comments if you feel that they are unsuited for children.
To make lists with normal font,
insert empty lines between list items.
- the font
- will be small and gray.
How do you do it again?<h1>Test</h1>
Ah, I got it. ==-- in the line after the text.
