Here are some quick ways to format text in your Rmd file. To make an italicized font we use *(text)*, to make a bold font use **(text)**.

For headers, use #(text) for level 1, ##(text) for level 2, and ###(text) for level 3. For example

Header 1

Paragraph text goes here…

Header 2

Paragraph text goes here…

Header 3

Paragraph text goes here…

Bulleted lists

To make a bulleted list, follow the example (indent for sublevels):

* Item 1

+ Item 1a

to create

For a numbered list, just simply number each line as follows

1. Item 1

2. Item 2

+ Item 2a

to create

  1. Item 1

  2. Item 2

    • Item 2a
