Formatting text

There's several ways to format text in Superhuman with shortcuts:

  • Cmd or (Ctrl on Windows) +B/i/U for bold, italics, and underline
  • Cmd/Ctrl+O for colors
  • Cmd/Ctrl+K for hyperlinks
  • Cmd/Ctrl+Shift+X for strikethrough
  • Cmd/Ctrl+Shift+7 for numbered lists
  • Cmd/Ctrl+Shift+8 for bulleted lists
  • Cmd/Ctrl+Shift+9 for quotes

Superhuman automatically makes a list if you type "*" (an asterisk) or "1." and then hit Space. Here's a gif showing some of these options in action:
