Writing Markdown in Anvil's system

You can insert blocks of markdown as webform fields to display text to clients within a webform.

Some of the markdown features that Anvil's system supports include:


Bolding Text

You can bold words by wrapping text in a double "**".

So ** I am a bold sentence ** renders as I am a bold sentence.


Italicizing Text

You can italicize words by wrapping text in a single "*".

So * I am an italic sentence * renders as I am an italic sentence.


Creating bulleted lists

You can create bullet points by placing a leading "-" before text.

  • I am plain & non-formatted.
  • I am italic.


You can make titles by placing up to three "#" characters combined with a space character " " before a grouping of text. The text must start with at least one # and the # character must be the first text character on the line.

A single # is the largest title, ## is medium, and ### is small.

I'm the biggest title !


I'm the medium title !

I'm the smallest title !
