Text formatting guidelines
Using bold, italic, and code style for text elements consistently and appropriately improves the readability and helps to avoid misunderstandings.
Use bold for GUI elements, such as menus and names of dialog boxes and input fields.
Use italics for introducing new terms and names of files and folders (paths).
Don't use strike-through.
Use code style for:
- Code elements, such as method and property names
- Database table and column names
- SQL commands
- NuGet package names
- URLs (not intended to be clicked)
- Inline code blocks (surrounded by `)
- Fenced code blocks (surrounded by ```) spanning multiple lines.
For details, see How to include code in docs.
Headings and link text
Don't use italics, bold, or code in headings or link text.
Keys and keyboard shortcuts
- Capitalize the first letter of key names.
- Don't use italics, bold, or code.
- Use "+" to join keys that are pressed at the same time.
