Action

Markdown Strong/Bold

Posted by toniwonkanobi, Last update about 2 years ago

Alternate version of Greg’s Action. This one creates Markdown strong around the selected text with asterisks (). If no text is selected, the Action inserts four asterisks () with the cursor in between them, ready for strong text entry.

Steps

  • script

    // Apply Markdown bold to selection, or insert ** if no selection
    
    var sel = editor.getSelectedText();
    var selRange = editor.getSelectedRange();
    
    if (!sel || sel.length == 0) {
      editor.setSelectedText("****");
      editor.setSelectedRange(selRange[0]+2,0);
    }
    else {
      editor.setSelectedText("**"+sel+"**");
      editor.setSelectedRange(selRange[0]+selRange[1]+4,0);
    }
