In Pumble, you can format your messages to emphasize important information, add detail, or clarify what’s been communicated. Message formatting is very easily implemented from the message toolbar in the message field. Once you hover over the the formatting type button, a tooltip will appear with the name of the formatting type and its shortcut (e.g. bold, cmd+b).

In Pumble, the following formatting options are available:

  • Code
  • Quote block
  • Code block
  • Ordered list
  • Bulleted list

Bold #

Bold is mainly used to emphasize the text or make it stand out in some way.

To format the text in bold, click the bold button from the formatting toolbar, or use shortcut Ctrl/Cmd + b and start typing the text. The text will be bolded.

Italic #

To format the text in italics, click the italics button from the formatting toolbar, or use shortcut Ctrl/Cmd + i and start typing the text. The text will be italicized.

Strikethrough #

You can use this type of formatting for types of texts that are outdated or deprecated in some way, but shouldn’t be deleted. 

Click the strikethrough button from the formatting toolbar and start typing the text, or use shortcut Ctrl/Cmd + Shift + x. The text will be crossed out.

Code #

Use this type of formatting to differentiate the code from the rest of the text.

To format text in code, click the formatting button in the toolbar at the bottom right corner and then choose the code formatting option. Now, when you type in text in the message field, it will be displayed in the code formatting style.

To format your messages in the desktop application, you can also use markup and surround the text with characters associated with the format.

To format text in code by using markup, type backticks before and after the text you’d like to be in the code block.

If you copy the code from Pumble and then paste it in some other text editor, the code text formatting will be saved.

With the quote block option, you can mark the difference between direct quotes and the rest of the text. You can use it to give a shout out to someone, or be specific about a piece of information that was shared with you. 

To use quote block, click the formatting button at the bottom left corner and then choose the code option from the ones listed.

Formatted text should look like this:

Code block #

Use code blocks to highlight longer blocks of code. 

To write a piece of code in code block, you can click the formatting button at the bottom left corner and then choose the code block option from the ones listed.

In front of the text, type in 1 and a period and then enter space. You will get a numbered list option, so if you press shift+enter and go to the new line, the new number will automatically be displayed. To indent a line, press Tab.

Use Enter + Shift for new line and Tab for indentation.
