    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.

    Markdown isn't a set of hotkeys for formatting text as you type - it's a data format that prizes readability both before and after processing.

    Check out the Github approach (with a preview tab) or Stack Overflow (with a preview below the data entry field) to see how it should be done.
