Markdown Metafield Now Available

Markdown is a great tool in the developer's tool belt that offers a quick and easy alternative to HTML text formatting.  We are happy to let you know that you now have a Markdown Metafield to use for your Cosmic JS Objects.

Login or sign up to begin using Markdown.

Simply go to add a new Object or edit an existing Object and click "+ Add Metafield" and notice the latest Markdown option.  You have the ability to preview the Markdown as well by clicking the Preview tab.

Let me know if you have any questions about this new option in our community and on Twitter.
