We’re fixing bugs identified in the comments, and other user reports we’ve received around markdown, but we’ve decided we’re not going to fundamentally change our markdown support.
This is the first time we’ve declined a request, and it didn’t come easily. We weighed this against other important features we’re working on to deliver and we had to make some tough choices.
Really appreciate your understanding on this, and please feel free to ping me if you have any questions, complaints, or need to rant.

It's really the parsing of markdown on keyup that ruins all of this. If we just had a separate preview, or no preview at all, it would be far better. No decent markdown editor replaces what the user is typing with a formatted version while they are typing.Spencer Watson supported this idea ·
