Support for Markdown in notes

ivan.aga says:

I think it would be _really_ *useful* to be able to format the text in Task notes, using some well established syntax like Markdown (http://daringfireball.net/projects/markdown/syntax).

This would give us the ability to make bulletlists, bold, italic, etc.

Just a thought!

I concur, markdown would be a nice addition.

Thought I'd resuscitate this thread; I'm also interested in formatting in notes. Another possibility (apart from Markdown) is Dean Allen's Textile parser.

Thanks for a terrific service.

I agree, this would be really cool.

Either this or some formatting options like you have in most Web-mail services nowadays:

- bold, italics
- proportional or fixed-width font
- hyperlink
- bulleted and numbered lists

Great idea, just keep it lean and keep the notes fast-loading.

Nobody wants a mini-m$-word document page inside their nice rtm page. ;D

I would definitely support either Markdown or Textile, but I generally find Markdown faster for fairly simple things, especially with the way it handles reference linking.

Just another vote for this - I assume wouldn't be incredibly difficult to do, especially if you made it an option in settings, thus meaning that you don't have to render every note by every user in Markdown...

Please? :P

tekacs says:

Incidentally, the way that RTM currently works (and the fact that I write using a subset of Markdown without even thinking about it, nowadays) I end up linking away to Evernote shards from my notes - this is awfully cumbersome, especially when the note just contains a simple list...

couldn't this be done in JScript (at least in the webapp)?
In any case, this should *not* be hard to implement and would increase usability by lengths.
It would at least be a workaround for as long as we wait for sublists/folders.

Numbered and bullet list would be very helpful. Markdown in general a real plus!

Right now nested lists get their nesting removed, having a formatter like Markdown would be awesome!

It would definitely be a great addition. I use Evernote when I need more than just scribble quick notes for a task (and I know that finally there's better integration between the two services), but if I was able to use Markdown I wouldn't need that workaround anymore.
