Formatting lost?

Hi there since yesterday all my formats are not doing anything - so !!xyz!! is no longer bold, it just shows as I typed it? italics as well?

Hello Marcus,

Although the correct syntax for bold text requires spaces such as !! text !!, it still should work without them. In fact, I just checked that in Chrome and I can't reproduce it. Even with no spaces or one space just on the left or just on the right, the formatting always works.

Is it possible that you're using the (deprecated) asterisk feature and have !!text!! in the task's name (without a space after the )?


Best regards,
David

OK inserting a space after * has resolved it but it used to work for months with no space?

Marcus,

The * feature is already deprecated due to compatibility, maintenance and other issues. It seems that this is another issue it causes right now. We will still keep it functional on the web, though.


Best regards,
David
