Easy, by using Markdown. This help article will guide you on where and how to use Markdown to customize texts in Vectera.

Where can you customize text with Markdown in Vectera?

How to style text with Markdown?

Below we will explain the basics of the Markdown language which you can use in Vectera. You can find a more extended guide at this link. Please note that not all the options in that guide will work in Vectera (eg. images)!

  1. Headings

    You can use headings by adding one or more hashtags (#) and a space before the text:

2. Bold and Italic text

  • Use 1 asterisk or 1 underscore to use italic text.

  • Use 2 asterisks or 2 underscores to use bold text.

  • Use 3 asterisks or 3 underscores to use bold and italic text.

3. Ordered and unordered lists

To add an ordered list, you add 1. item 2. item 3. item ... below each other with a dot and space after the numbers.

To add an unordered list you have multiple options. You can use - item, + item or * item below each other. Add a space after the symbol.

Add 3 spaces before the item to make an item indented:

4. Links

In order to add a link, enclose the link text in brackets [text] immediately followed by the URL in parentheses (URL). You can make the link bold or italic by adding the asterisks/underscores before the brackets and behind the parentheses.

5. A horizontal line

You can add a horizontal line by adding three asterisks, hyphens or underscores:

Note: If you add three hyphens below the text, all the text will be displayed in bold. You must enter to prevent this or choose one of the other options to create a horizontal line.
