Text color: (#hex color code). Switch to previous color using the closing tag: (#). (#0000FF)This my blue __bold__ text color(#)
+ To treat a special markdown character as regular text, precede it with a \.
+ Use the indent and outdent buttons in the toolbar* to change the level of your current quote, header, or list item.
+ If you use the toolbar* bold button to insert bold text, pressing the bold button again will advance you past the closing bold tag. This also works for italics and code.
