Markdown Support?


I would like to know if Todoist currently supports or plans to support "Markdown" formatting in the future? http://daringfireball.net/projects/markdown/

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.
