Add the ability to format selected text as code in the comment field.
I think it looks cleaner to be able to format text as code on the comments as well. I currently enter a new answer to keep it legible.
We will do this, but on the back end, it is a non-trivial change and that is the reason for the delay. Right now comments are plain text so to implement this we’ll need to implement a change to all comments, converting them to HTML.
Seems to have been "planned" for a while now
Are you referring to something like this?
Funny thing is, before our latest upgrade, this was working fine. We could put TICK:12345 and it would change it to a hyperlink. It would also let us embed our own html, which is/was wonderfully helpful.
I've just seen the date for this 'Idea under review'!!!
See this post which makes the case more compelling than any plea here!!
