Add markdown as an optional text formatting when adding tasks: http://daringfireball.net/projects/markdown/
not sure of you stack... BUT the python version of markdown is pretty robust and has lots of plugins for creating tables, inserting images, etc...
I second this. Would be a huge help if we could make words bold, italic or highlighted for easy scanning in long lists.
You can use basic formating by selecting the text and pressing Ctrl+B to make it bold or Ctrl+I to make it italic. The syntax for this formatting is:
This word will be !! bold !!
This word will be __italic__
The formatting options for bold and italics should be changed to conform with the Markdown standard. This should be rather easy to implement. Markdown is becoming quite widespread and it adds a layer of unnecessary confusion when standards aren't observed.
+1 for Markdown
it is not only bold and italic
but nice readable formating for list with dash,
horizontal line with 3 dashes
and Headers with #
Markdown is very easy and great for organizing infos in notes, work is much easier.
Like David said, not following standards when it's that easy is quite disturbing and I don't know why this isn't already changed, it's been almost a year. To begin with, you could simply replace that !! and __ thing by ** and *. Wouldn't even take a whole minute of your time haha. You don't need to implement the entire thing. Of course, if you can that's great but doing this is already good enough to begin with
Please, give us both, old proprietary for compatibility and standard markdown for all.
Yes, please use markdown, it is an industry standard now.
DItto, esp markdown for notes!!
+1 as it would also allow the use of non-standard links as those you can produce on a Mac by dragging and dropping mails etc. (like this one message:%3C0.0.40.F1B.1CEF408F7874C1C.email@example.com%3E)
+1 for Markdown in notes
I'm also using Markdown in other PKM tools (some handcrafted and my PKM Wiki). Please adapt to the industry standard.
+1. Trello does it very well too (mentioning just for example sake, not comparing).
+1. Markdown is great and would be greatly appreciated as an addition to Todoist
+1 its seems illogical to invent your own standard. This would be super useful inside notes.
As far as I know, this hasn't been implemented. Is there any way we might get an update for this? I agree with the previous commentors. Please adopt the standard and allow markdown syntax in a note for a todo item!
I need lists!!
I need (one-word) links!!
the links are already possible, try this in your comment
http://www.google.com (search on google)
Right, but that's not Markdown, and in fact it's the opposite convention: parenthesis around the link text instead of parenthesis around the link URL. It's confusing to have a separate standard on Todoist.
I fully agree with you.
I've found it by coincidence, I am not sure if there is a description of these features. So I just wanted to share.
Thanks Lubos. Go team!
