Allow to disable HTML rendering globally in Settings
If I write code snippets in the tasks body everything between angle brackets disappear. The only workaround seems to put the code inside a Markdown code block. However, I disabled Markdown globally, and enabling it would instead break code snippets using parts symbols reserved by Markdown syntax (as an asterisk for a simple formula snippet). It would be far easier to me if I could disable all interpretation of text as HTML or Markdown and just work in plain old text (I have no qualms with losing the automatic conversion of URLS to hyperlinks). For a programmer, like me, is far more interesting to have a textarea that is simply dumb than one that tries to be smart and end up annoying.
Checkvist always had HTML parsing in some form enabled. I understand that you may want to make it a simple notebook without any niceties, but so far I'm not sure this is the direction we'd like to move the tool into.
Could you probably share your suggestion in our forum and see if there are supporters of this idea? https://discuss.checkvist.com/
