Could I disable hashtag function? Because I want to paste my CSS on it.

And, could I disable the auto note name which using first line?

    I suggest using the code block syntax to paste your css code

    Another request to disable the hashtags. I find I write Instagram posts as notes and hashtags are a problem. The code block is a solution but not idea when I want to cut/paste from Bear as I then have to remove code block marks.

    I would like to second the ability to define what the starting note looks like. I would also like to have the H1 tag removed when the note is started. I would just like a blank note,

    I would also love to see this disabled, or at least toggle-able. A good notes program for me is fast and quick to spin up, having to delete the "#" is really annoying. As small as it may seem, this is honestly a bit of a dealbreaker, and I always find myself switching back to Apple Notes or even some text editor.
