Lack of this feature is driving me crazy. I use this feature all the time when communicating with other engineers in Slack. Not having it in Teams makes it feel like Markdown support was an unfinished afterthought.
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.
