When you're writing descriptions or other large blocks of copy, Sheep allows you to add some simple formatting to your text by using a system known as Markdown.

Here are a few simple examples to help you get started:

Headings

 # Heading text
To create a heading use the #  character at the beginning of a line.

Subheadings

 ## Subheading text
To create a subheading use two ##  characters at the beginning of a line.

Paragraphs

Paragraphs are created by adding an empty line between two blocks of text. A single enter  keypress is ignored in Markdown, to allow you to easily format your text.

Two enter  key presses begins a new paragraph.

Formatting

You can make text bold or italic for emphasis using one or two of either the * or _  characters.

You can make text **bold** or _italic_ (or __bold__ or *italic*) for emphasis using one or two of either the `*` or `_` characters.

Lists

Markdown can create two sorts of list:

  • unordered list (with bullet points)
  • ordered list (with numbers)

To create an unordered list:

  1. start with a blank line
  2. enter  * list item on a new line
  3. enter  * next list item on a new line
  4. end with a blank line

To create an ordered list:

  1. start with a blank line
  2. enter  1. list item  on a new line
  3. enter  5. next list item on a new line (the actual number doesn't matter - Markdown will increment the list for you)
  4. enter  1. last list item  on another new line (see?)
  5. end with a blank line
