Keyboard Shortcuts and Markdown in AmpleNote.com

Keyboard Shortcuts and Markdown

Amplenote is all about efficient writing and productive note organization. Many folks find it tedious to switch between mouse and keyboard to make formatting changes. That’s why we have keyboard shortcuts and markdown.

Wait, what’s the difference?

  • Keyboard shortcuts are the actions you take to turn on or off a setting.

  • Markdown is a plain text formatting syntax that quickly create rich text in a plain text editor.
