Diarly uses special characters to indicate text formatting. This is known as markdown — using special characters in your entry allows Diarly to store everything in plain text.
Some characters modify the entire line or paragraph, while others only a part of the text.
Line modifiers always start as the first characters of the new line followed by a space. Diarly supports the following line modifiers:
# Headers— there are four levels:
# Main header
## Secondary header
### Tertiary header
#### Quaternary header
* List item
 Checklist item
[x] Completed checklist item
You can access the modifiers list by clicking on the checklist item to select/unselect the item.
Lists and checklists can be nested. You can use
⌘] to increase and decrease the nesting level.
In-line text modifiers
`code` (using the backtick key, right above the tab key). These modifiers can be used anywhere in the text, not just at the start of the line.
You can create links to websites using the following format:
[Link to amazing website](http://amazing-website.com)
Alternatively, you can select the text you want to convert into a link and paste the link, and it will be added automatically.
