Option to preserve markup(down) in the chat editor.
As someone who uses markdown regularly, I find it quite annoying to be presented with a wysiwyg editor in a chat text box.
It would be much easier to format a message in raw markdown and have it processed upon send.
This could either be controlled by a setting (of which there are surprisingly few) or be the default in the standard message box, reverting to the current behaviour in the format view.
The current system of using markdown for shortcuts to wysiwyg formatting is very disrupting and makes editing an extremely frustrating process.

its even more annoying when you paste something into teams, and it tries to assume your markup for you..then you have to undo you message.

Formatting behavior should definitely be an option. I tend to go for the "just send what I typed, for goodness sake" school of thought myself.
As I have said many times, for a product with such a diverse user base as Teams, not having options is not an option.
