Meta forum feature request: markdown, screenshot pasting

Post by stephennixon »

I'm guessing that you already have these features in mind, but I couldn't find a similar post, and I really value forums like this, so I wanted to make a post about forum improvements I would love. These things aren't super urgent, but would be helpful for writing good questions as a user.

I've been spoiled by posting to GitHub, and forums like GlyphsApp and RoboFont, so I find that it is extremely helpful to have a few formatting options while writing technical questions:
1. Markdown formatting, so I can call out code snippets, make bulleted lists, headings, and so on.
2. The ability to paste images inline, from my clipboard. I am constantly taking screenshots with command+control+shift+4, so I can paste them into a question later. Have to instead save screenshots somewhere is a bit of a pain.

Thanks for making and sharing such a promising tool! It's really exciting to see someone take on kerning automation in such a serious and thoughtful way.
