Markdown is a simple, common standard across the web that allows you to format text. For example, bolding, italicising text or creating a list of items. 

Paddl supports the use of basic Markdown when editing or creating a profile summary, as well as for Employers when creating a job campaign.

By formatting a text, you can draw attention to key points and make it easier to read.
