Markdown layout options for descriptions

We support Markdown syntax in description fields (survey description, page description and question description). In case you are looking for writing thorough- and well-designed descriptions to guide your voters, you may use it when creating/editing your survey to obtain the following styling elements.

Paragraphs limits and line breaks

Markdown does not require special symbols to mark paragraph limits and line breaks.

  • Use a blank line to separate two paragraphs.

  • End a line with two spaces or more and then type a new line to create a line break.

If your Markdown contains multiple lines, do not use the inline editor to edit your description, since this one does not support multiple lines. Please use the editor in the settings panel instead.

You may see your description nevertheless displayed as one line in the edit view, but this should still not affect your text unless you click on it to edit it.

Editing the description using the settings panel supports multiple lines.

Inline Mode does not support multiple lines.

You should check that the links work correctly and have interesting content. 🙂

Images

Images are pretty similar to links in Markdown syntax. You just have to add an exclamation mark. The text would be then an alternative text, while the URL would be the image URL.

Example:

CODE
![alt text](https://picsum.photos/seed/picsum/200/300)

Tables

To render a table, use pipes (|) to separate columns and three or more hyphens (-) for each column header.

Example

CODE
| Syntax      | Description |
| ----------- | ----------- |
| Header      | Title       |
| Paragraph   | Text        |

will render to:
