# Visualization Markdown syntax

You can use the Markdown markup language subset in the Text widgets on your dashboards in Visualization:

You can use up to 4 levels of headings. Use # symbols to mark the relevant heading levels:

# Level 1 heading


## Text formatting

Use formatting to highlight words and phrases in your text:

• For bold, use ** before and after a word or expression:

This is what **bold** looks like

• For italics, use * before and after a word or expression:

This is what *italics* looks like

• For bold italics, use **_ before a word or expression and _** - after:

This is what **_bold italics_** looks like


## Lists

You can use both ordered and unordered lists.

### Simple unordered lists

Use *, - or + at the start of every list item to make an unordered list. Keep using the same symbol throughout one list.

This is an unordered list in code:

* Item 1
* Item 2
* Item 3


It will render as follows:

• Item 1
• Item 2
• Item 3

### Nested unordered lists

To make a nested unordered list, add an indent before the lines with the nested list items. This indent may be from 2 to 5 spaces long.

This is a nested unordered list in code:

- Item 1
- Item A
- Item B
- Item 2


It will render as follows:

• Item 1
• Item A
• Item B
• Item 2

### Simple ordered lists

Use 1. at the start of every list item to make an ordered list.

This is on ordered list in code:

1. Item No. 1
1. Item No. 2
1. Item No. 3


It will render as follows:

1. Item No. 1
2. Item No. 2
3. Item No. 3

### Nested ordered lists

To make a nested ordered list, add an indent before the lines with the nested list items. This indent may be from 2 to 5 spaces long.

This is a nested ordered list in code:

1. Item No. 1
1. Nested item I
1. Nested item II
1. Item No. 2


It will render as follows:

1. Item No. 1
1. Nested item I
2. Nested item II
2. Item No. 2

## Tables

To describe a table, you need to create the following:

• A header row. This is where the names of the table columns go.

• An alignment row. This is where you decide how to align text in a column:

• :--- for alignment to the left
• ---: for alignment to the right
• :---: for alignment to center
• One or more content rows

Always separate the table from the surrounding text by a single empty line.

This is a table in code:

Left-aligned | Right-aligned | Centered
:--- | ---: | :---:
Text | Text | Text


It will render as follows:

Left-aligned Right-aligned Centered
Text Text Text

Use links to point to relevant information on external websites.

To describe a link, use the following syntax: [text to display](link_address).

This is a link in code:

[DoubleCloud website](https://double.cloud/)


It will render as follows:

DoubleCloud website

## Code snippets and blocks

To display excerpts of code in your text, you can use inline code snippets and dedicated code blocks.

### Inline code snippets

To create an inline code snippet, use  before and after the expression.

This is an inline code snippet in code:

The multiply(a,b) fucntion calculates the product of the numbers.


It will render as follows:

The multiply(a,b) function calculates the product of the numbers.

### Dedicated code blocks

Use  and the programming language name to format a multi-line code fragment as a dedicated code block. You can see the complete list of supported languages on the relevant Github page .

This is a dedicated code block in code:

      python
import requests

rs.raise_for_status()

print(rs.text)



It will render as follows:

import requests

rs.raise_for_status()

print(rs.text)


## Images

To insert an image into your text, use the following syntax:

![alt_text](image_link "Hint text on hover over the image")


This is an image in code:

![doublecloud_project_resource_model](../../_assets/administration/project-resource-model.png "This is the picture of the DoubleCloud resource model")


It will render as follows:
