Wire supports markdown on all platforms.
On all platforms
In order to display italic, bold, or parts of code, it is possible to use the following syntax to format some text inside any conversation on Wire:
|Markdown used||Displayed as|
|_some text_||some text|
|*some text*||some text|
|**some text**||some text|
|_**some text**_||some text|
|Link to a conversation|
Link to a contact´s profile
Note: If you want to start a line with "#" without that line being a heading, you need to "escape" the symbol with a backslash, like this: "\#"
Additionally on iOS
Inside a conversation, select the formatting button to activate markdown.
Then select one of the following:
- Numbered list
- # H1, ## H2, ### H3 syntax to create headers of various sizes
- Start a line with a number followed by a period and at least one space to create a numbered list (eg: "1. Buy milk")
- Start a line with either "-", "+", "*", or "• ", followed by at least one space, to create a bullet list (eg: "- Buy milk")
- Convert text to a link by using the syntax "[link title](link url)". Eg, "[tap me!](www.wire.com)" will display "tap me!" as a link, which when tapped, will direct you to the wire homepage. Note, for security reasons, this will only work if the link title is not a url, and the link url is valid.
