Markdown Style Shortcuts

Recommended Posts

I'd be interested to know whether the markdown style shortcuts in the current version of Evernote are widely known and whether there are others I'm unaware of?

When I found out about these they were a real productivity boost for capture and formatting notes.

These all work as the first characters on a line...

# (hash+space): Large Heading

## (hash+hash+space): Medium Heading

### (hash+hash+space): Small Heading

* (asterisk+space): bullet list

1. (1+fullstop/period+space): numbered list

[] (open square brackets+close square brackets+space): checlist

--- (dash+dash+dash+space): divider

Combine these with bold, italic, underline - CTRL-B,I,U or COMMAND-B,I,U and I can create great looking notes incredibly quickly.

I've attached a screenshot which might better illustrate the shortcuts.

Let me know if there are others I've missed!

I love this and I wish there was more markdown integration. 

Thank you for the list of markdown that currently works with Evernote!

Check this out:

It's not exactly a text editor, but the web version does allow for markdown. I could not get the integration to work seamlessly with the way that I have my Evernote configured, but you may be able to come up with something if you fiddle with it enough.
