Markdown

When you format the word in Markdown format, you should add Markdown syntax to the word to indicate the words and phrases that looks different from each other.

RichTextEditor supports markdown editing when the editorMode set as markdown and using both keyboard interaction and toolbar action, you can apply the formatting to text

To use quick Markdown editing feature, inject MarkdownEditorService in the provider section of AppModule.

Supported Commands

The Vue Markdown editor supports the following commands to format the markdown content:

Subscript <sub>Subscript text</sub> For subscript, add <sub> to the front and </sub> to the back of the text.
Superscript <sup>Superscript text</sup> For superscript, add <sup> to the front and </sup> to the back of the text.
Ordered List 1. First
1. Second

Unordered List * First
* second
For unordered list, preceding one or more lines of text with *.
Links Link text without title text
[ Link text ](URL)
Link text with title text
[ Link text ](URL , “title text”)
Create an inline link by wrapping link text in brackets [ ], and then wrapping the URL as first parameter and title as second parameter in the parentheses ().
Note: The title text is optional, if needed it can be given manually.
Table | Heading 1 | Heading 2 |
|---------|---------|
| Col A1 | Col A2 |
| Col B1 | Col B2 |
Create a table using the pipes and underscores as given in the syntax to create 2 x 2 table.
Horizontal Line *** (three asterix in new line)
(or)
___ (three underscores in new line)
For horizontal line, add *** or ___ to the start of the new line.
Image ![](URL path) Create an image by wrapping the image source in parentheses ().
Image with alternate text ![ alternate text ](URL path) Create an image with alternate text by wrapping an alternative text in brackets [], and then link of the image source in parentheses ().
Note: When inserting the image using toolbar, the alternate text cannot be provided that needs to be given manually.
Escape tick marks supported Sample text content with **bold and **not bold** text can be in the same line.** In the syntax, the whole content is made as bold where the content not bold can be made as normal text by adding the bold syntax to the start and end of the respective text. Likewise you can do the same for various inline commands.
Escape Character \(any syntax) Escape any markdown syntax by prefix \ to the syntax.
Example:
\**Bold text**
HTML Entities Copyright: © - &copy;
Trade mark: ™ - &trade;
Registered: ® - &reg;
Ampersand: & - &amp;
Less than: < - &lt;
Greater than: > - &gt;
For HTML entities, add & and ; to the front and back of the respective entities.

The above listed commands alone are supported in Syncfusion Markdown editor. For other unsupported commands, you can achieve using the HTML tags in Markdown editor. The foot notes, definitions, math, and check list markdown syntax are also not supported.

Markdown to HTML

The rich text editor allows you to preview markdown changes immediately using preview. In this sample, the third-party library Marked is used to convert markdown into HTML content.

This sample demonstrates how to preview markdown changes in rich text editor. Type or edit the display text, and apply format to view the preview of markdown. The actionComplete event can be used to convert Markdown to HTML.

In RichTextEditor , you click the toolbar buttons to format the words and the changes
are visible immediately.
Markdown is not like that. When you format the word in Markdown format, you need to
add Markdown syntax to the word to indicate which words
and phrases should look different from each other
RichTextEditor supports markdown editing when the editorMode set as **markdown** and using both *keyboard interaction* and *toolbar action*, you can apply the formatting to text.
We can add our own custom formation syntax for the Markdown formation, [sample link](https://ej2.syncfusion.com/home/).
The third-party library <b>Marked</b> is used in this sample to convert markdown into HTML content.

Custom formation

The rich text editor allows you to customize the markdown syntax by overriding its default syntax. Configure the customized markdown syntax using the formatterproperty.

This sample demonstrates how to customize tags of markdown formatting.

For example, apply + to Unordered list, apply 1., 2., 3. to Ordered list, for bold, __, and for italic _.
