Simplify formatting of code/monospace blocks

With the new editor, there is one major regression that is quite annoying for us. When you paste a block of code, all lines are turned into paragraphs. When you select these lines and format them as monospace (Ctrl+Shift+M), they remain separate paragraphs.

When you start a fresh paragraph, format as monospace (Ctrl+Shift+M), enter some text and hit enter, Asana inserts a line break instead of a paragraph break. Hence I think the following behavior would be consistent:

When you select multiple consecutive paragraphs and format them as monospace, paragraph breaks should be turned into line breaks.

This IMO would be a great UX improvement and a simple solution to Code snippets in Asana - #259 by Bacontastic.


yes! this is annoying. there seems to be no way to have an embedded code block with multiple lines. Even Shift-Enter doesn’t work when typing within a code block - it ends the block.
