The notes feature supports hashtags for searching capabilities. To organize your notes, use a hashtag to find and filter them by tag. For example, #javascript will let you access all the notes you've created across all your courses that you tagged with #javascript.

You can also navigate to your notes page (opens in new tab) and use the "Search notes..." field to search through your notes.

Formatting notes

The notes feature uses Github Flavored Markdown for formatting.

Here are the different stylings you can use with Markdown in Pluralsight Skills notes:

Headers

You can use # symbols to create six sizes of headers and subheaders to organize your notes.

# Header 1
## Header 2
### Header 3
#### Header 4
##### Header 5
###### Header 6

Alternate method: You can create two levels of headers with dashes/equals signs.

Header 1
