Third post from the Ulysses app

Third post from the Ulysses app

Lorem Ipsum is simply dummy text of the printing and typesetting industry. Lorem Ipsum has been the industry’s standard dummy text ever since the 1500s, when an unknown printer took a galley of type and scrambled it to make a type specimen book. It has survived not only five centuries, but also the leap into electronic typesetting, remaining essentially unchanged.

It was popularised in the 1960s with the release of Letraset sheets containing Lorem Ipsum passages, and more recently with desktop publishing software like Aldus PageMaker including versions of Lorem Ipsum.

Do You Speak Markdown XL?

If not, don’t worry – it is dead-easy to learn. Markdown XL consists of 25 definitions, and it will only take you little time to get the hang of it. Soon you will be able to just type away, with no need to reach for the mouse.

Until then, the full list of available definitions is accessible via ⌘9. In the markup panel, navigate with the arrow keys and press Return to apply a definition. You can also start typing to filter the definitions displayed in the panel.

The definitions work in three different ways: They either mark up an entire paragraph (e.g., Heading, Comment Block), or they mark up a word or a phrase (e.g., Strong, Marked), or they add a so-called text object (e.g., Link, Footnote).

Let’s have a quick run through all available definitions and their respective uses.

To mark up a heading, start a line with one or more hashes. The number of hashes corresponds to the heading’s hierarchical level. That is, type ## for a second level heading, ### for a third level heading, and so on.

If you want to emphasize a word or phrase, or mark it up as strong, you can do so with single underscores or double asterisks, respectively, or use the shortcuts ⌘B and ⌘I.

Ordered and unordered lists can be created by simply typing dashes or numbers at the beginning of a line. And they will automatically continue, if “Smart Lists” are enabled in the Edit menu (“Edit › Substitutions”):

  • This is
  • An example
  • Of an unordered list

If you want to create block quotes, e.g. to provide a motto, or to highlight famous quotes from even more famous people, simply start a line with a > character:

That’s one small step for a man, one giant leap for mankind.

(Neil Armstrong)

And with a divider you can, well, divide. Text sections, for example.


The Editing Phase

The next part of the markup is helpful for editing purposes: It lets you highlight text, as you would with a classic highlighter, or mark text for deletion.

While these definitions serve important purposes on screen, their true power will only become apparent during export. As an example, when creating a PDF with the “Swiss Knife” style applied, comments and deletions will be absent from the output file, since this is a style meant to deliver a finalized PDF. But when using the “Rough Cut” style, comments will be included, since that style is meant to be used for printed drafts.

Text Objects

Headings, emphasis and comments may be all that’s needed for general prose, but some texts require images or footnotes, and online publications may require the insertion of links.

Enter what we call text objects – “these colored bubbles” you have already come across in this introduction. They are a bit different from standard text markup, as you can double-click a text object and add additional content (a photo, a URL). Their creation, however, is just as simple:

To add a link, type square brackets around a word or phrase (or use the ⌘K shortcut). This will open a popover which lets you add, well, a link to a webpage. If you type curly brackets around a phrase instead, you will create an annotation, which is basically a note added to that phrase.

You can also add images or footnotes, again by typing only a few characters. 1 Enter (img) and you’ll be asked to provide either an image file or a URL. Of course, you can also just drag an image into your text, but where’s the fun in that?

Image Preview

Ulysses will, per default, display small image previews in the editor. You can tweak the size of this preview in Ulysses’ “General” preferences, or turn it off completely: Images will then be indicated by a little bubble dubbed IMG.

  1. Type (fn), put text into the popover, hit ⌘↩︎, continue.
