Markdown formatting

This post is also available in: 日本語 Русский Español Français Српски

Markdown is a simple markup language used to create rich text (e.g. HTML) with a plain text editor. It lets you add basic formatting to your text, using symbols known and accessible on all keyboards. Font size, colour, and other, more advanced options are not available with Markdown.

In Vivaldi you can use Markdown to format your Notes or when posting on the Vivaldi Forum.


Using Markdown

To use Markdown, first get to know the syntax on CommonMark, then give it try in Notes or on the Vivaldi Forum.

Some examples of Markdown:
