To add formatting to your comments and posts, you can write and edit them using our Fancy Pants editor or in Markdown mode.
Fancy Pants editor
The Fancy Pants editor is a rich text editor that provides all the common formatting options you’re used to such as bold, italics, lists, strikethrough, etc. It’s available on reddit.com.
Markdown mode lets you format your text using a plain text editor. For tips and instructions on how to format your posts and comments using markdown, see our formatting guide. Markdown is available on Reddit’s mobile apps, reddit.com and old.reddit.com.
