Test of All Formatting Types We Support in a Story

A subtitle of some sort… how would I know I have to choose the small heading to access this?

First section with big heading

<<< Hatch version >>> A sentence with an italicized phrase. But I must explain to you how all this mistaken idea of denouncing pleasure and praising pain was born and I will give you a complete account of the system, and expound the actual teachings of the great explorer of the truth, the master-builder of human happiness. A sentence with a bolded phrase. No one rejects, dislikes, or avoids pleasure itself, because it is pleasure, but because those who do not know how to pursue pleasure rationally encounter consequences that are extremely painful.

A new paragraph. A sentence with a bolded and italicized phrase. Nor again is there anyone who loves or pursues or desires to obtain pain of itself, because it is pain, but because occasionally circumstances occur in which toil and pain can procure him some great pleasure.

A really good passage I had to call out. The wise man therefore always holds in these matters to this principle of selection: he rejects pleasures to secure other greater pleasures, or else he endures pains to avoid worse pains.

Another sentence, with a link. To take a trivial example, which of us ever undertakes laborious physical exercise, except to obtain some advantage from it? Another sentence, with a bolded link. But who has any right to find fault with a man who chooses to enjoy a pleasure that has no annoying consequences, or one who avoids a pain that produces no resultant pleasure? Another sentence, with an italicized link.

These are two adjacent block quote paragraphs. Their block quote indicator bars should connect. Paragraph spacing should go unchanged, between any combination of plain and block quote paragraphs.

The wise man therefore always holds in these matters to this principle of selection: he rejects pleasures to secure other greater pleasures, or else he endures pains to avoid worse pains.

TK — If you put a TK at the beginning of a paragraph, it marks it in yellow. On the other hand, we denounce with righteous indignation and dislike men who are so beguiled and demoralized by the charms of pleasure of the moment, so blinded by desire, that they cannot foresee the pain and trouble that are bound to ensue; and equal blame belongs to those who fail in their duty through weakness of will, which is the same as saying through shrinking from toil and pain. Another sentence, with a bolded and italicized link.

Subsection with small heading

These cases are perfectly simple and easy to distinguish. In a free hour, when our power of choice is untrammelled and when nothing prevents our being able to do what we like best, every pleasure is to be welcomed and every pain avoided.

Another subsection with a super long name in certain circumstances and owing to the claims of duty or the obligations of business

But in certain circumstances and owing to the claims of duty or the obligations of business it will frequently occur that pleasures have to be repudiated and annoyances accepted. The wise man therefore always holds in these matters to this principle of selection: he rejects pleasures to secure other greater pleasures, or else he endures pains to avoid worse pains.

Second section with big heading

But I must explain to you how all this mistaken idea of denouncing pleasure and praising pain was born and I will give you a complete account of the system, and expound the actual teachings of the great explorer of the truth, the master-builder of human happiness. You can upload custom drop cap images too.

A really good passage I had to call out. The wise man therefore always holds in these matters to this principle of selection: he rejects pleasures to secure other greater pleasures, or else he endures pains to avoid worse pains.

No one rejects, dislikes, or avoids pleasure itself, because it is pleasure, but because those who do not know how to pursue pleasure rationally encounter consequences that are extremely painful. Nor again is there anyone who loves or pursues or desires to obtain pain of itself, because it is pain, but because occasionally circumstances occur in which toil and pain can procure him some great pleasure.

A code block. This functionality is pretty hidden but accessible through option + command + 6. Three backticks work too. What would really be helpful for the community would be syntax highlighting.Links work in here too.

To take a trivial example, which of us ever undertakes laborious physical exercise, except to obtain some advantage from it? But who has any right to find fault with a man who chooses to enjoy a pleasure that has no annoying consequences, or one who avoids a pain that produces no resultant pleasure?

On the other hand, we denounce with righteous indignation and dislike men who are so beguiled and demoralized by the charms of pleasure of the moment, so blinded by desire, that they cannot foresee the pain and trouble that are bound to ensue; and equal blame belongs to those who fail in their duty through weakness of will, which is the same as saying through shrinking from toil and pain.

The upload image from + menu looks broken at the moment, but you can drag in images fine.

The Unsplash feature is prettyyyyy cool with the automated linked captions:

The default image style is above, same content width as text. You can also make it a bit wider:

or even full-bleed:

And the last layout format for images is float it left.

Of course, you can upload your own images.

There’s a minimum space between images like between these two stacked above each other:

A more hidden photo grid if you drag in / upload multiple photos:

Remember to check highlights.

What about font styles? How do the 3 options look?

  • I forgot about lists
  • Simply type “•” or “+” or “-” or “*” to start a list
  • I guess it snaps to this formatting

Okay, what about a numbered list?

  1. Simply type “1.” to start the list
  2. Pretty cool
  3. Another item

Let’s test an embed from Twitter:

That worked, but is there too much padding below? How about a video embed?

Or audio?

What about a Medium embed?

No official footnotes support but you can superscript with a caret⁶ like so.

— —
⁶ The footnote

If you want a single space, not the default new paragraph upon enter, press shift + enter.
Like so.
Good for poetry.

Wow, more advanced hacky tricks here.

Aspirational formatting features:• Syntax highlighting (currently users use 3rd party embeds)
• Table of contents
• Anchor links to headings
• Tables
• Indents for poetry
• Footnotes and automated bibliography

The end, for now.
