Steps to reproduce
- Toggle on ‘Auto pair Markdown syntax’ in Editor settings
- Select a word in editor and type
*. (word becomes italicized)
- Toggle off ‘Auto pair Markdown syntax’ in Editor settings
- Select another word in editor and type
*. (word is overwritten)
My selected text becomes italicized (or bold, highlighted, etc.).
My selected text is overwritten.
- Operating system: MacOS
- Obsidian version: 0.8.14
This pertains to two related, but separate, features of the editor: 1) auto-pairing markdown syntax when user starts typing markdown, 2) applying markdown to user-selected text.
I want to use #2 but disable #1. But one toggle setting controls the two distinct features.
One solution would be to de-couple these into 2 different settings. Another would be just let #2 be the default, with no setting. I can’t think of a reason someone would want to disable #2 at the moment.
Note: an identical bug exists for the ‘Auto pair brackets’ setting and typing
[ to apply linking to a text selection. But I’ll just submit this one report for both bugs.
