Markdown Cheat sheet note

Grabbed and edited the Markdown cheat sheet from here into a Joplin note.
I find it handy to have as a reference in my notebook. Perhaps useful for someone else as well?

Copy-paste into a Joplin note:

# H1
## H2
### H3
#### H4
##### H5
###### H6

Alternatively, for H1 and H2, an underline-ish style:




Emphasis, aka italics, with *asterisks* or _underscores_.

Strong emphasis, aka bold, with **asterisks** or __underscores__.

Combined emphasis with **asterisks and _underscores_**.

Strikethrough uses two tildes. ~~Scratch this.~~

1. First ordered list item
2. Another item
⋅⋅* Unordered sub-list. 
1. Actual numbers don't matter, just that it's a number
⋅⋅1. Ordered sub-list
4. And another item.

* Unordered list can use asterisks
- Or minuses
+ Or pluses


[I'm an inline-style link](

Or leave it empty and use the [link text itself].

URLs and URLs in angle brackets will automatically get turned into links. or <> and sometimes (but not on Github, for example).


Here's our logo (hover to see the title text):

![alt text]( "Logo Title Text 1")

![alt text][logo]

[logo]: "Logo Title Text 2"


Inline `code` has `back-ticks around` it.


var s = "JavaScript syntax highlighting";
s = "Python syntax highlighting"
print s
No language indicated, so no syntax highlighting. 
But let's throw in a <b>tag</b>.


Colons can be used to align columns.

| Tables        | Are           | Cool  |
| ------------- |:-------------:| -----:|
| col 3 is      | right-aligned | $1600 |
| col 2 is      | centered      |   $12 |
| zebra stripes | are neat      |    $1 |

There must be at least 3 dashes separating each header cell.
The outer pipes (|) are optional, and you don't need to make the 
raw Markdown line up prettily. You can also use inline Markdown.

Markdown | Less | Pretty
--- | --- | ---
*Still* | `renders` | **nicely**
1 | 2 | 3


- [X] Milk
- [ ] Rice
- [ ] Eggs

> Blockquotes are very handy in email to emulate reply text.
> This line is part of the same quote.

Quote break.

> This is a very long line that will still be quoted properly when it wraps. Oh boy let's keep writing to make sure this is long enough to actually wrap for everyone. Oh, you can *put* **Markdown** into a blockquote. 


Horizontal Rule:

Three or more...







Here's a line for us to start with.

This line is separated from the one above by two newlines, so it will be a *separate paragraph*.

This line is also a separate paragraph, but...
This line is only separated by a single newline, so it's a separate line in the *same paragraph*.


⋅⋅⋅You can have properly indented paragraphs within list items. Notice the blank line above, and the leading spaces (at least one, but we'll use three here to also align the raw Markdown).

⋅⋅⋅To have a line break without a paragraph, you will need to use two trailing spaces.⋅⋅
⋅⋅⋅Note that this line is separate, but within the same paragraph.⋅⋅
⋅⋅⋅(This is contrary to the typical GFM line break behaviour, where trailing spaces are not required.)

[I'm an inline-style link with title]( "Google's Homepage")

[I'm a reference-style link][Arbitrary case-insensitive reference text]

[I'm a relative reference to a repository file](../blob/master/LICENSE)

[You can use numbers for reference-style link definitions][1]

Some text to show that the reference links can follow later.

[arbitrary case-insensitive reference text]:
[link text itself]:

**Inline HTML does not work in Joplin...**
  <dt>Definition list</dt>
  <dd>Is something people use sometimes.</dd>

  <dt>Markdown in HTML</dt>
  <dd>Does *not* work **very** well. Use HTML <em>tags</em>.</dd>

This is <s>strikethrough text</s> mixed with regular **Markdown**.

that could be also helpful in a help page of the application, and I personnaly use this page, Mastering Markdown from Github


<br> for line breaks. <mark> for highlight. (Works with md)

<a href="#end">bot</a> & <a id="end"></a> for internal links.


The underscore doesn’ t appear to be working? I also tried copy-pasting this in my Joplin and it doesn’t show up at underscore . What might the command for underscore be then?

Underscore doesn’t work, you need to use asterisk character in either **bold** or *italic*

The underscore does work to mark text as italic. That’s the standard in markdown. But I think that @oddlyaware meant that it is not possible to undercore a text.

@oddlyaware there’s no support for underscoring text in markdown.

since I don’t use italic that much I’ve created a custom css file to replace italic with underscore. Basically:

em {
font-style: normal;
text-decoration: underline;


t’s pretty cool! Is it however possible to use maybe another symbol or only replace the
_X_ with underscore? As it doesn’t makes sense that both *X* & _X_ should belong to italics. Am I dreaming? :hugs:

I hear you but this is standard markdown.
