Colons can be used to align columns.
Copy this into your editor to see what it renders:

| Tables | Are | Cool |
| ---------------- | :-----------: | --------: |
| col 2 is | centered | \$149 |
| col 3 is | right-aligned | \$4.17 |
| privacy is | neat | \$2.48 |
| rows don't need to |be pretty| what? |
| the last line is | unnecessary | really?
| one more | row | Yay! 😆


The Markdown Basic editor supports footnotes. The footnote links do not work properly on mobile. Copy this into your note to see how they're used:

You can create footnote references that are short[^1] or long.[^2]
You can also create them inline.^[which may be easier,
since you don't need to pick an identifier and move down to type the note]
The footnotes are automatically numbered at the bottom of your note,
but you'll need to manually number your superscripts.
Make sure to count your variable[^variable] footnotes.[^5]
[^1]: Here's a footnote.
[^2]: Here’s a footnote with multiple blocks.
Subsequent paragraphs are indented to show that they belong to the previous footnote.
{ eight spaces for some code }
The whole paragraph can be indented, or just the first
line. In this way, multi-paragraph footnotes work like
multi-paragraph list items.
This paragraph won’t be part of the footnote, because it
isn’t indented.
[^variable]: The variable footnote is the fourth footnote.
[^5]: This is the fifth footnote.
