I use Bear Notes in Markdown Compatability mode and for the most part it works as expected. However, one area where Bear falls down is in rendering text with BOTH italics and bold.
In standard Markdown, you can format text to be both bold AND italicised by surrounding the relevant text with three asterisks (e.g. ***example***). However Bear does not seem to understand the three-asterisks syntax. Instead it seems to interpret the syntax as bold. So instead of making the relevant text bold and italicised, Bear only makes the text bold (no italics) and leaves asterisks around the words as if the asterisks were part of the text and not syntax formatting.
I've tried accomplishing my desired result of bold and italicised text by switching from Compatibility Mode to Bear's form of Markdown but I still get the same result.
It would be really great if you could fix this.

Would be nice if I could for example make this whole section of text italic and just the word **BOLD* additionally bold in Bear.*

Yes, please, "Bold" without the asterisks.
