Create or Add a Document

There are two ways to create any document in a project (a text document, blog post draft, or checklist):

  • Create a document draft in your private Documents folder where no one can see it while you're working on it, except for people you explicitely share it with. When the document is ready, you can copy or move it to the project, making it publicly available.

    For further instructions, see My Documents

  • Create a document right from a project. In this case the document becomes public the moment you create it, and everyone with the viewing permission determined by the project settings will be able to see the contents of the document while you are working on it.

Create a text document in a project

  1. Navigate to your project.

  2. On the project sidebar, choose Documents.

  3. On your project's Documents page, navigate to the Folders tab and open the folder where you want your new document located:

    Now you can add some content to it using the built-in editors: Rich Text or Markdown.

  7. Choose the editing mode:

    • Rich text (default): use a built-in rich text editor (what you see is what you get) for formatting.

    • Markdown: use Markdown tags to format the text as you type. You'll be able to preview your document while working on it.

  8. Add images to your draft. In the Markdown mode use tags. In the Rich text mode you can:

    • Drag'n'drop or cut'n'paste a file or animated GIF from your computer to the editor area.

    • Copy'n'paste an image from anywhere.

    • Insert an image from the web using its URL:

      On the editor toolbar, click insert-image.png then specify its location (URL).

  9. You work is automatically saved as you type. You can leave the page at anytime and access it later to contunue working on it.

    To preview your document, use the options on the right-hand side:
