To end indentation and start a new paragraph, put newline character "\n" twice.

Headers To create a header, start a line with a hash "#". The more "#'s" that you use, the smaller the header will be. The headers must be preceded by a new line "\n".

Unordered Lists To create unordered lists, use either asterisks "*", plus "+", or hyphens "-" as list markers.

2) item1\n    a. sub-item21\n    b. sub-item22\n    c. sub-item23

3) item1\n    a. sub-item31\n    b. sub-item32\n    c. sub-item33
