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 come in four levels:
# to start a primary header,
## for a secondary header,
#### for third and fourth level headers respectively.
# This is a primary header ## This is a secondary header ### This is a tertiary header ...

⌘] to increase and decrease the nesting level.
In-line text modifiers
Inline text modifiers can be added to any word or group of words in a line. The available in-line modifers are
`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:
