Header(#) doesn't toggle after using angle bracket(<>)

while taking notes i have come to an issue of not being able to create a heading after using angle brackets can some one help me ?

Can you paste an example here? Put it in between triple quotes

```
<> # example
```

But it sounds like this is just how Markdown works. Your angle brackets are probably opening up html tags, and Markdown doesn’t format inside html. See this very recent thread: Using callout in HTML block won't render it - #5 by CawlinTeffid

But if you show an example, maybe there is a workaround.

I could repro this.

<a>

# heading

As @rigmarole said, # heading is recognized as the content of the <a> HTML tag.

The only workaround I’ve come up with is to enclose <a> with backticks, but it doesn’t sound appealing…

this is an example similar to what i have.

Can you explain what it is you’re trying to do? The example doesn’t show that.

  • If you are trying to use html, close the tag before the header.
  • If you are just trying to highlight things with brackets as a notation, you could use escaping backslashes (prevents the tag) or backticks (turns it into pre-formatted):
`<example>`
# Test

\<example\>
# Test

i was using it to show that there should be put an name of something from the type of the one written inside of the brackets (/<directory>/<directory>/…/<filename> → c:/python34/lib/os.py ). using backslash fixed it thankyou for your time.
