Now formatting 😊

When writing more information on your card you get support for formatting on with the 'Formatting help' button (Bottom right side) But there is more πŸ₯³

You find the linked Help texted in Formatting help and here is an overview 
(Tipp: You may wanna copy it on one of your cards as a template)


  • This text is **bold**
  • This text is _italic_
  • This text is ~~crossed out~~
  • This text is >quote but needs to be set before each line
    >So before this line
    >and also this line
  • This is a [link](http://www.trello.com) -> You may look if you want to hide the link - > Compare how the link is shown 😊
  • Using a '-' will create bullets -> same works with numberings 1., 2. and so on => but be aware of hard breaks! 
  • Headers can be created differently > easiest way
    # Header 1, ##Header 2, ###Header 3 aso 

  • Last but not least Pictures aaaaand Gifs in your description 😍

@Fabienne Gerhard great article! I actually didn't know about the ~~ so that's really cool!! I love to use formatting in my cards so the big blocks of text look a little more easier to read. Great tips here
