Trouble Shooting

Ctrl + / cannot switch between the “source code mode” and “read only mode”

Reason: Default shortcut ctrl+/ will select all text in editor environment in Ubuntu, like ctrl+arefertoit

Solution: change the default shortcut

  1. open the Preference page

  2. scroll down to the end, open the “Open Advanced Settings”

  3. open the file “conf.usr.json

  4. at the “keyBinding” section, add the following statement

    “Source Code Mode”: “Alt + /” // could be what ever u like.

Resizable image

Typora allows to use <img> tag for displaying images
