FormFinch supports Markdown which you can use to decorate the text elements like questions and titles. All you need to do is to place special characters around the text you want to decorate. To help you learn how you can use Markdown in FormFinch we compiled a list of examples.
|Italic||*example text*||example text|
|Bold||**example text**||example text|
|Underline||__example text__||example text|
|Strikethrough||~~example text~~||example text|
You can also combine these styles to make words, for example, bold and italic.
|Bold and Italic||***example text***||example text|
|Bold and Underline||__**example text**__||example text|
|Bold and Strikethrough||~~**example text**~~||example text|
|Italic and Underline||__*example text*__||example text|
|Italic and Strikethrough||~~*example text*~~||example text|
|Underline and Strikethrough||__~~example text~~__||example text|
|All decorations||__~~***example text***~~__||example text|
The Plain Text components property Text also supports titles. This way you won’t need to use separate Plain Text and Title Components, but you can instead insert titles directly into the Plain Text. All title styles will look the same way as the corresponding heading styles.
|Example||Corresponding Heading Level|
|# My Title||Heading 1|
|## My Title||Heading 2|
|### My Title||Heading 3|
|#### My Title||Heading 4|
|##### My Title||Heading 5|
|###### My Title||Heading 6|
These styles can be applied to the following components:
|Submit Button (only with a customized thank you page)||Title|
|Label after number input|
|Add label for lowest option|
|Add label for highest option|
|Label for first option|
|Label for second option|
Some sentences include special characters that are also used to decorate text. One example is: “Fields marked with an * are required”. Normally you could make this sentence italic by typing an asterisk at the beginning and end of the sentence. However, because there is an asterisk within the sentence the result will be:
|*Fields marked with an * are required*|| Fields marked with an |
This can be avoided by decorating the individual parts of the sentence, both before and after the original asterisk.
|*Fields marked with an* **are required*||Fields marked with an * are required|
Making the sentence bold or italic and bold instead can be achieved in the following way:
|**Fields marked with an** ***are required**||Fields marked with an * are required|
|***Fields marked with an*** **** are required***||Fields marked with an * are required|
If you use special characters that are different from the ones you use to decorate text, you can do this simply by only placing the appropriate Markdown characters before and after the sentence:
|**Cats & dogs are both lovely creatures**||Cats & dogs are both lovely creatures|
|__ A * is called an asterisk__||A * is called an asterisk|
Be careful with using underlined text because it can easily be mistaken for a link.
