The full list of formatting options with shortcuts can be found in
Menu Bar > Formatting. But diarly also lets you format by simply selecting the text and choosing the formatting options from the popup:
Formatting just by typing
Diarly uses special characters to indicate the formatting of the text. This is known as markdown - using special characters in your entry allows Diarly to store everything in plain text.
Some of the characters modify the line, others only part of the text.
Line modifiers start always as first characters of new line followed by white space. Diarly supports following line modifiers:
Headers - there are four levels:
[x]Completed Checklist item
You can click on the modifiers list by clicking on checklist item to check/uncheck item.
Lists and checklists can be nested - you can use
cmd [ and
cmd - ] to pick level.
In-line text modifiers
::marked:: You can use them anywhere in the text, not just at line start.
