Add notes

#text #notes

Sometimes you need to add lots of text to give context to your ideas - different specs, documentation or why not capture meeting notes. For this, separate notes work the best. Long text notes live in the right sidebar in Deekit so that you can edit content on the whiteboard and in your notes at the same time. And of course for each note you can add a preview link(s) to the whiteboard, too.

  1. Activate "Text" tool
  2. Choose the "Long note" tool
  3. Click on canvas to add your first note

Markdown

Markdown like this results in nicely formatted table:

This is a nice table:

| Objective | Mid | Score |
| --------- |:---:| -----:|
| Example objective 1 | 0.4 | 0.60 |
| Example objective 2 | 0.5 | 0.75 |
| Example objective 3 | 0.3 | 0.30 |
| Summary: | 0.42 | 0.65 |

Markdown like this creates headings:

# First level heading
## Second level heading
### Third level heading etc

Markdown like this creates lists:

* Is a bullet list
- Will result also in a bullet list
   		- Will result in second level bullet list
1. Will add numbered bullet list
