Settings

To access the settings

  • Click the Settings icon

Markdown Field - Choose the field you want displayed

Keep Airtable Markdown Syntax - Airtable doesn't follow the standard Markdown syntax. You can enable this to maintain Airtable-style Markdown. They don't use the standard 'checkbox' syntax. For checkboxes to show up in a Rich Text field, you can use the Airtable-style syntax.

Initial Edit Type

You can view the Markdown formatting in WYSIWG standard formatting or in strict Markdown using symbols

WYSIWG - This will allow your text and content to display exactly as it would in a finished format. You can select formatting styles such as Headings, Bold, Numbered list, etc. without having to use Markdown symbols
