Our improved editor allows you to better format your content, so your team can more easily identify and digest key points. The editor is also responsive to Markdown for further Card customization.
Formatting Card content
The tool bar at the top of the Card editor allows you to format your Card content. You can also click the ? icon to pop out a Help Guide in the side of your editor.
Formatting Card Content Options:
Select your desired format from the dropdown. Click on the formatting scheme that you want before entering your text in the editor, or highlight the desired text area after you’ve written it to change the text’s format.
Add basic text formatting to your Card. You can manipulate the text style or add a code snippet here.
Insert an image, video, iframe, table, link, file, or Markdown block to your Guru Card.
Upload a file or image to a Guru Card. Upload a video by simply entering the video’s URL and clicking the blue checkmark. (i.e. from YouTube, Vimeo, Wistia, etc.)

Add a table by clicking the table icon in the top toolbar. You can easily add or remove columns or rows with a single click.
Add a hyperlink by entering the URL and clicking the blue checkmark. You can also highlight the text you want to hyperlink and click the link icon in the popover menu.
Insert a Guru Card link by clicking the Guru icon in the toolbar, and then searching for and selecting the Card you’d like to link to. Read more about adding Guru to Guru Card links here.
To import a table from Excel, copy/paste the spreadsheet cells into the Card. If this is a dynamic insert (i.e. if there's a change in the spreadsheet, you want to see that change reflected in the Guru Card), embed the table from Google Sheets.
Guru recommends using the "image uploader" button to upload an image to your Guru Card as opposed to dragging and dropping the image for best results.
