Why TextEdit.MarkdownText can't display bold and italic in the same time?



  • Hi everyone,

    ScrollView {
     anchors.fill: parent
      TextArea {
        id: textEdit
        textFormat: TextEdit.MarkdownText
        focus: true
        text: "Emphasis, aka italics, with *asterisks* or _underscores_.
    Strong emphasis, aka bold, with **asterisks** or __underscores__.
    Combined emphasis with **asterisks and *asterisks***.
    Combined emphasis with **asterisks and _underscores_**."
        selectByMouse: true
        persistentSelection: true
         }
     }
    

    My editor displays :

    Emphasis, aka italics, with asterisks or underscores.
    Strong emphasis, aka bold, with asterisks or underscores.
    Combined emphasis with asterisks and asterisks.
    Combined emphasis with asterisks and underscores.

    But I want :

    Emphasis, aka italics, with asterisks or underscores.
    Strong emphasis, aka bold, with asterisks or underscores.
    Combined emphasis with asterisks and asterisks.
    Combined emphasis with asterisks and underscores.

    When I try on Github I get the right format and the Qt documentation indicates that the markdown uses the Github syntax https://doc.qt.io/qt-5/qml-qtquick-textedit.html#textFormat-prop

    Thanks for your help.



  • I have updated Qt to the last version and it is ok now...
