I see that if I type an asterix to italicise a phrase the end italics asterix is automatically added for our convenience. However this breaksdown when you’re trying to create a bullet list:
- which is started by an asterix as the first character of the line as you then get the spurious end italics asterix automatically added >*
Naturally this also means you can’t use the asterix markdown to italicise the first word on a line:
- as it will be taken to be a bulleted list instead *
Of course you can just use the
Italicise format icon in the toolbar instead to achieve this.
