Using the shortcuts menu

Another way to format text in the notes is by using the shortcuts menu that can be activated by typing "/" in the note field, or by clicking on the small "+" button on the note's left side.

Creating tables

To create a table in your notes, you can either use the Table option from the shortcuts menu or manually format the text using the Markdown table syntax.

Paragraph formatting

There are three styling options for formatting your paragraphs: Info, Warning, and Important.

To use them, open the shortcuts menu and you'll find them at the bottom of the list.
