Text Cells provide you the option of a Rich Text Editing or a traditional markdown editing experience.
Rich Text Editing¶
Rich Text Editing allows you to edit and format text as you type it, like editing a document.
The Text Toolbar contains standard Rich Text Editing elements:
- Text style (Heading, Paragraph, etc.)
- Emphasis (bold, italic, underline, strikethrough)
- List (unordered, ordered)
It also contains a few non-Standard options.
Code and Links¶
The code button tags the currently-selected text as
code, formatting it as monospaced.
The link button tags the currently-selected text as a link. Clinking on a link will reveal the URL in a tooltip, allowing you to navigate to the website.
You can also input
LaTeX into your text cells, using the button that looks like a Sigma.
The Markdown Editor allows you to edit your text directly as markdown in a code editor and see it rendered as traditional compiled markdown.
To enable markdown editing in place of traditional Rich Text Editing, set the
markdown setting to
the About menu.
