Whenever I write something like init, class, str, repr in a sentence it appears bold.

How can I stop this without having to put it in a separate code block?

__init__, __class__, __str__, __repr__ can be done by using the "`" (backtick) character before and after the selected text. This marking allows for inline code. This markup can also be used within comments as well.

You can use the 'quote' button instead of the 'code' button, then you won't get any of the color bolding stuff.
