Is there a chance to have WYSIWYG editor in SO instead of this mind boggling meta? And having ENTER as a next line not those two ridiculous two spaces etc.
What is meta?
- Any Stack Exchange user can ask a question
- The community provides support, votes on ideas, and reports bugs
- Your voice helps shape the way Stack Exchange operates
I absolutely adore markdown - and there is at least "what you see in the preview is what you get", along with helpful icons and shortcut keys.
One indication of how successful I view markdown to be is that now when I'm writing blog posts or emails, I naturally write backticks for code etc - and then I'm very disappointed when it doesn't format properly :(
I like SO's editor, TYVM. I only wish some of the awesome awesome keyboard shortcuts were available in the comment editor. (hint, hint, Jeff)
