Formatting Card Content

Roles: Authors

Our improved editor allows you to format your content, so your team can more easily identify and digest key points. The editor is in Markdown for easy publishing. Don't know Markdown? Don't worry - the editor view allows you to see the formatting as you edit, so you can still create beautiful Cards.

How to Format Cards

  • The shortcuts at the top of the Card take you through all of your formatting options including lists, bullet points, tables, images, bold and many others. Click on the formatting that you want before entering your text, or after with the desired area highlighted and watch Markdown work its magic on your content.

  • To add images, copy and paste them into the editor or drag them onto the Card.

  • The code icon is the easiest way to insert code blocks into Cards. To preserve formatting, click the code icon, then paste the code using Shift+Command+V. Screen Shot 2017-03-16 at 1.51.28 PM.png

  • Including files in your Card is simple! Drag the file to the spot you would like it included and edit the title to reflect your preference. In the web app, you can click the file icon to browse for the file of your choosing.

  • The editor supports simple formatting via keyboard commands (i.e. shortcuts), so with command + b, command + i, command + k, and others you can easily bold, italicize, and hyperlink.
  • When pasting from other sources, Guru preserves and converts bullets, headings, and hyperlinks into Markdown, which means you don't have to reformat your content when migrating it into Guru.
