I would like to know if Todoist currently supports or plans to support "Markdown" formatting in the future? http://daringfireball.net/projects/markdown/
you can currently format the name of your task with bold, italic, underlined or highlighted text. For more details, please refer to this page: https://todoist.com/Help/viewHelp?page=format_syntax

I realist that for the majority of your users markdown means nothing but for some of us it is almost muscle memory now and it would be great to have the option to not have to learn another syntax.
I've voted. Thanks.
I agree with John, changing the bold and italic, etc to be the same as markdown shouldn't be too much work and a lot of people (like us) would be eternally grateful
+1, please add support for markdown, it is an industry standard whereas the markup todoist uses now is not. Exactly what John W. said — muscle memory. I'm a paid user if that matters any.
+1, agree. Also, the current keyboard shortcuts conflict with keyboard navigation on the Mac -- particularly ctrl-b.
Keyboard shortcuts should be customizable, they also conflict with Sublime Text.
Full support for Markdown is not necessary, really.
But be cool to support it in the task contents itself.
What could be supported initially:
* Bold: using **hello** instead of !!hello!!;
* Italic: using *hello* instead of __hello__;
* Italic Bold: using ***hello*** instead of __!!hello!!__ (I don't know if it works);
* Monospaced: using `hello`;
* Links: [check it](http://google.com/);
And the priority and tags continues to work normally.
The only problem is that it would be necessary to convert the formatting applied to all currently existent projects, since both styles are incompatible.
The link syntax is particularly annoying when you're used to markdown. I always need to search through Todoist documentation to find the appropriate syntax.
love this idea,
you could have a selection on what is used for formatting (to remove the incompaatablities of the todoist language and Markdown)
I would like to author my tasks in:
[ ] markdown
[ ] todoist code
