# Markdown Shortcuts

GitPitch provides a number of unique syntax shortcuts supported by PITCHME.md markdown that can be used to alter the appearance or behavior of content on any slide.

Note: These Markdown Shortcuts are supported by gitpitch.com , GitPitch Desktop , and GitPitch Enterprise . This feature is not part of the GitPitch open source project .

#### Set Custom Font Size

To set a custom font size for specific slide content use the following shortcut syntax in your PITCHME.md markdown file:

---

@size[size-value](your-content)



Where the value of size-value can take any valid value permitted by the font-size css property .

For example, set a custom size to super-size text on the slide:

---

# @size[3.5em](OK)



This markdown snippet renders as follows:

The basic slide content is shown on the left. The same slide content with the size shortcut syntax applied is shown on the right.

#### Set Custom Font Color

To set a custom font color for specific slide content use the following shortcut syntax in your PITCHME.md markdown file:

---

@color[color-value](your-content)



Where the value of color-value can take any valid value permitted by the css color property .

For example, set custom colors for complete lines of text or just snippets within a line:

---

### @color[orange](ACME Corp Clearance Sale)

#### Dynamite Deals - @color[#DC143C](Short Fuses) Included!



This markdown snippet renders as follows:

The basic slide content is shown on the left. The same slide content with the color shortcut syntax applied is shown on the right.

#### Set Custom CSS Class

To set a custom CSS class for specific slide content use the following shortcut syntax in your PITCHME.md markdown file:

---

@css[class-name](your-content)



Where the value of class-name is any CSS class name you have activated for your slideshow presentation using the custom theme setting .

For example, if you presentation defined the following custom CSS classes:

.headline {
color: gold;
text-transform: uppercase;
}

.byline {
color: gray;
font-size: 0.9em;
letter-spacing: 2px;
}


These custom classes could then be applied directly to content on your slides as follows:

---

#### @css[byline](Dynamite Deals - Short Fuses Included!)



This markdown snippet renders as follows:

The basic slide content is shown on the left. The same slide content with the css shortcut syntax applied is shown on the right.

#### Set Custom TOC Label for Slide

See the Auto-Generated Table-of-Contents documentation for further details.

#### Set Slide-Specific Transition

To set a slide-specific transition for an individual slide use the following shortcut syntax immediately following any slide delimiter in your PITCHME.md markdown file:

---

@transition[transition-type]

### Your Slide Content Goes Here


Where the value of transition-type can any one of the supported slide transition types .

Note, this shortcut syntax can also be used to specify distinct slide-in and slide-out transitions for an individual slide. For example:

---


Using this approach, any pair of supported slide transition types can be specified for a slide. Note, when using a pair of slide-in and slide-out transitions the use of the -in postfix and the -out postfix on the transition names is required.
