Markdown support

Unfortunately, what Asana current calls “markdown support” isn’t it. It both conflicts with the generally accepted standard, particularly the text emphasis parts, and fails to implement most of the standard.

The text macro-style of implementation also makes it much more difficult to use than necessary. It’s impossible for me to place my cursor inside or outside a block of formatting, like I could usually, and requires me to use my mouse to correct any mistakes rather than use my keyboard like usual.

Please either remove it, so I can easily use Markdown Here, or fix it so that it’s real markdown, not something vaguely resembling it.

Hi @Flaviu_Tamas, welcome to the Asana Community Forum!

Thanks for taking the time to provide this feedback! As mentioned by Marie on the Markdown announcement post, we have a lot more exciting updates on the way, including headers, inline code, multi-line code, quote blocks and more… but these require a little more work on our end.

I’ll keep you posted here as soon as I have some updates :slight_smile:
