Formatting

You can use a combination of Markdown and HTML to format the text in a question or choice label. There is quite a bit of duplication between them but you can use whichever approach you are most comfortable with.

Using Markdown

Headers:

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

Bold:

Surround the text with **
**Text to be marked as bold**

Italics:

Surround the text with *
*Text to be shown in italics*

Escaping Markdown

The problem with using markdown is that if you want to use a # or a * as part of your label then you might find it disappears and the label gets reformatted. To resolve this put a “” in front of:

#
_
*

HTML
