Markdown is a special syntax that allows you to add a little bit of formatting to your text. The advantage of the markdown syntax is that you can use it even (or especially) in a plain text document format, so any plain text reader can understand your text. This doesn’t mean any plain text reader can show you how the final result will be: it still needs to support the markdown language.

To enable live markdown formatting, select in the main menu Modus > Markdown.

When printing a document, you can apply the markdown formatting by enabling the option Apply Markdown in the print panel. If you leave this option unchecked, the document will be printed as you see it in the editor.

You can see the supported Markdown features by opening the uFocus Introduction from the Help menu.
