Why was this not an MVP requirement? I see it was marked as "planned" on March 13, 2017, and as of today it's not even in development yet.
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.
