More Markdown

Martijn van de Rijdt, 22 Dec 2015

Text formatting was previously only supported in notes but has now been extended across labels and hints for all question types. We’ve also added support for changing text colors with HTML <span> elements and css, as well as support for headings.

How to Use

To format text in Enketo (and I believe soon in ODK Collect too), use the Markdown syntax, as follows:


links

[links](https://enke.to/::markdown)


new

lines


emphasize

*emphasize* or _emphasize_


strongly emphasize

**strongly emphasize** or __strongly emphasize__


colors

<span style="color:orange">colors</span>


headings

#### headings
