Additional information

This is not a bug. We just don’t support this.

I don’t know why it is not a bug. Could you explain more?

My thought is that something like “A_B_C” is just a normal text (not an equation), it should be displayed as it is. And it is displayed correctly in the preview mode, just incorrect in the read mode.

The markdown text I given is copied from another markdown editor joplin which does not have this problem.
And I also tested the markdown text in vscode, it gives the expected result.
So, the expected result is right, the actual result is wrong, and I believe it’s bug :grinning:

Thanks, I doublechecked. I’ll move back to bug reports.
