<small> format tag does not work

SB

I rely on the <small> tag extensively to format text in tasks. As of today, instead of tasks displaying text in small format, the format code '&lt;small&gt;' appears and the text is displayed full size. I use Win XP and Chrome. Please advise.

Hello Steven,

We've never officially supported this and other tags in Todoist, but it's possible that they were parsed in the past.

The formatting Todoist supports is:

!! bold text !!
__Italic text__

Please use only these two options as we can't guarantee if any other tag will work correctly (there are security issues if HTML tags would be fully supported).


Best regards,
David

I use small text extensively in Todoist tasks. Is there no longer any way to reduce text size? Many formatting tags were supported in the past (small, superscript, etc.), along with other options such as highlighting using '%(hl)This text is highlighted%' format, which still displays properly in my tasks. Is highlighting also being phased out, leaving only bold/italic text format options?

Steven,

We've introduced the new bold and italic formatting options last year and left the other solutions active for a while for the transition. They will no longer be supported.

We may consider adding more different formatting options in the future, though but without HTML tags. You're welcome to vote for it in our Votebox: http://todoist.com/Vote/showProposal/440/


Best regards,
David

Hello.

I am using juste the character ">" in the task field sometimes, and it is displayed "&gt;" on Chromium-browser. (But I do not use this character to make HTML tags).

On the iPhone app, it is displayed ">".
