    To make the text larger, add a # in front of it.

    #Selfie =>

    <h1>Selfie</h1>

    To quote something, add a > in front of you quote.

    >Welcome to Duolingo =>

    Welcome to Duolingo

    To make something in italics, add an asterisk in front and behind it.

    *Duolingo* => Duolingo

    To make something bold, add two asterisks in front and behind the text.

    **Duolingo** => Duolingo

    To make a list, or add bullets:

    * Duolingo

    * Memrise

    becomes

    • Duolingo

    • Memrise

    To make a line:


    Press the underscore 7 times, no spaces. _______

    What I used to highlight text is the tick, that is right under the esc key, and right next to the 1 and ! key.

    If you add ticks to the end of the text, it will be highlighted.

    To make a huge highlighted text, put the hashtag before the two ticks.

    <h1>Duolingo</h1>

    m.tastic pointed out: ***hello*** turns into hello


    BastouXII pointed out: If you want to quote some special character without it having its usual effect, like in your explanation for the tic, put a backslash () before said character, like `this`, it'll give you this : this.

    There's a page for this on the Wiki, which is a good thing to bookmark if you want an easy reference for formatting (as well as all of the other useful info on the wiki).

    Also, to do italics, you can put a _ before and after a word.

        I have a question, how do you make a fold?
        Example: in this post https://www.duolingo.com/comment/7619770
        there are dotted lines under some headlines, and if you press one of those headlines, the text below it is expanded (if you press it again, it folds back in). How does one do that?

        For the separating line, you can either do 7 underscores, or more simply (and what I use) 3 hyphens.

        You can do other things with hashtags:

        2 hashtags

        Hello

        3 hashtags

        Hello

        4 hashtags

        Hello

        5 hashtags

        Hello

        6 hashtags

        Hello

        7 hashtags (6 is the limit for effect, any extra hashtag(s) are visible)

        #Hello

        If you want to quote some special character without it having its usual effect, like in your explanation for the tic, put a backslash (\) before said character, like \`this\`, it'll give you `this`.

          How do you do a plain underline, without highlighting.

          July 27, 2015

          https://www.duolingo.com/BastouXII

          If it's surrounded by spaces, nothing special (like that _ ). If it's next to a word, you need to escape it with a backslash ( \ ) like \_that.

          Sorry BastouXII, I don't understand. Maybe I wasn't clear. I wanted to know how to underline a word.

          I don't think we can, using markdown.

          Highlighting is not working on my newly downloaded app. It is working here on this site but on the regular studies I can no longer delete, or edit or highlight.
