_italic_, [links] and *bold*!
Hi there. I just finished coding a new feature which I think you may like.
You can now use the following notation to format only certain parts of your control's text:
- for italic, use _this notation_
- for a link, use [this notation]
- for bold, use *this notation*
Here's a screenshot of what the above text looks like in a Paragraph control, for instance:
The shortcuts will work almost everywhere, where it makes sense.
You can escape *, _, [ and ] characters with \*, \_, \[ and \], so if you want to write "this [is] some text" and don't want the "is" to become a link, just type "this \[is\] some text".
This is a big change so before I push it live I'd love it if some of you could help me test it by installing the pre-release build and playing with it for a few days (as always, no guarantees). If everything goes well, I'll put the change in this Sunday's weekly 1.5 release, update the help page and all that good stuff.
