Format text

Currently, Ellipsus supports basic text formatting. Just open a document and click on Format in the right-hand sidebar (It will look like a capital T) to open the formatting panel.

Now you can:

  • Use bold, italics, strikethrough, or underline effects to words or sentences.

  • Add headers (Ellipsus supports H1, H2, H3, H3) or captions.

  • Add bulleted or numbered lists, block quotes, horizontal dividers, and code snippets.

Looking for a way to add a link to your text? Just select the text you want to hyperlink and use the right-click menu or type (or Ctrl) + V to paste a URL.
