LD update: new comment/post formatting options
Just wanted to give you all a heads up about a new feature we've just added to LD - if you highlight text when you're writing a comment or post you should now get a little formatting window pop up.
This should let you easily make text bold, italic, underlined or - if you're feeling fancy - you can add in bullet point lists too.
All of this was possible before but required witchcraft and wizardry with keyboard shortcuts. Hopefully having this more straightforward method makes it a little more accessible
But the new formatting toolbar was all a precursor to being able to add in the text link option. You can now highlight some text - like this - and choose the link/paperclip icon. Enter a URL then that text will become a link. Magic!
Would be great to have your feedback and to know if it's behaving oddly for anyone. I'll do my best to get it fixed
Oh yay.. That's awesome. Well done Kelsey! Will give it a go when I'm on the laptop.
Haha slightly ironic that it didn't work! I think it's getting confused between auto youtubing and adding a link as text - I'll get it fixed tomorrow
is this working ( <= highlighted - but no pop-up)? im on the laptop now and no formatting pop up is appearing
