Hi there

I'm sorry if this has been covered, but I find it difficult to search for this topic.

I would like to know how to write a string in Bear that starts with a # but not have it be a Tag.

Thanks very much

    you can put a dot before the # like this: .#notatag

    What is you have something that is like this: #&#
    The dot works for the first # but then it converts to a tag after the
    second one

    You can also use the inline code block syntax #&#

    is obtained by putting two ` character around the string.
