Unfortunately, Todoist doesn't support an option to highlight text anymore.

to whom still want the hightlight back, here is how we can do:

firefox + stylish

and put following in stylish and apply on all domain("todoist.com")

.ex_link i {background-color: yellow;font-style:normal;}

so, when you need highlight, just apply italic style on the words in task, then you will get highlight.


but this way still got some problem, I think it's a bug of todoist.

Lets say if you have a emailing task like this:

here is sample emailing task

and put italic style on "sample"

here is __sample__ emailing task

expect the italic style just only apply on the word "sample", but when you click done, and you will surprised get this:

here is __sample emailing task__

you have no way to change this. :)

Bold style is works in the same way as well.

is this a bug? I believe it is, not sure what todoist staffs thinking about it.

Thank you for your report, this indeed seems like an issue on our side, I've been able to reproduce it and I've passed it to the developers.

Best regards,
