I've used code blocks in other sections but I'd hope this would be something that will be resolved in a future release. Restricting the use of slash rules out using Bear for any sort of technical documentation
glad to hear an escape character is being worked on. i mostly use bear for journaling and categorizing my thoughts on the fly using hashtags, but i use slashes all the time when i can't make my mind up about which word to use, e.g. "...but reading barthes wouldn't appeal to pragmatists/businesspeople/etc."
slashes are an important part of my written inner voice, and it's very hard to strike a tone that feels like me without them. just an option to turn off formatting for certain markdown characters on a per-note basis would be enough for my purposes, now that i think about it. personally i like this solution more, because escaping a character every single time can get tedious.
I ran into the same issue today. I wrote normal text mentioning two related groups like "A/B and C/D". It displayed "B and C" in italics. I'd expect italics is only used when the closing slash is not directly followed by a letter. Just a suggestion.
Okay, I see this is tricky. Sometimes you want a pre- or postfix syllable to be italics and not the rest of the word. Then my suggestion will prevent that. Sorry. But the issue is addressed – I'm confident you'll find a workable solution.
