Markdown editor

Write issues and comments with full markdown support.

Overview

Our markdown editor supports almost all Markdown elements to be as close as GitHub as possible. Read more about markdown here.

Shortcuts

Styling text

You can use the same shortcuts you use on GitHub to format your markdown:

  • B to make selection bold
  • I to make selection italic
  • E to transform selection to a codeblock
  • K to transform selection to a link
  • Shift . to transform selection to a quote
  • Shift 7 to transform selection to an ordered list
  • Shift 8 to transform selection to an unordered list
  • Shift L to transform selection to a task list

You can also apply styling from the toolbar below the editor.

Helpful commands

  • P to preview your markdown
  • U to upload an attachment (drag and drop works too)

Autocomplete

When you start typing a #, @ or a : you will see a list of suggestions. Continue typing to filter the list with full-text search capabilities. You can use the arrow keys to navigate through the list and press enter to select an item.

Issues / Pull Requests

Write #number to reference an issue or pull request. You can search issues by number or title. This will create a mentioned activity in the referenced issue. You can also use this to reference pull requests.

Mentions

Write @username to mention a user. You can search users by username or name. This will send a notification to their Inbox and subscribe them to the issue. We only support user mentions at the moment, not teams.

Emojis

Write :emoji to insert an emoji. You can search emojis by name or keyword.
