Italics disappear but their flags appear in Reading View

Steps to reproduce

Apply Italics to a block of text in Editing view.
Go into Reading View

Expected result

I expect the formatted text to br displayed in italics, and the italics code flags to disappear

Actual result

The Italics markdown flags remained, and the italics formatting set was not displayed in Reading View.

Community plugins: for bugs, please first try updating all your plugins to latest. If still not fixed, please try to make the issue happen in the Sandbox Vault or disable community plugins.

Additional information

You want italic to span across separate lines, with blank lines in between, within quotation.
this is not a bug. We don’t support it, I don’t even think this is markdown compliant.

You could try the Italic HTML tags instead. <i></i>
