Format your ideas

You can use the Format section of our sidebar to change your text size and text markup.

Select a topic and apply a font size or font markup by clicking on the quick button in the sidebar.

The style palette includes color, topic and boundary styles.

Colors can be used to change the font or background color. You can change between the two using the lower buttons: Text and Background. 

Topic styles can be used to change the full appearance of your topics.

Boundary styles allow you to set boundaries around a parent topic and its children.

We do not support the underline style for text and formatting only certain words of an idea due to simplicity and UI reasons. For that we suggest you use Notes
