How can we improve Checkvist?

Checkbox does not work for Notes

Hi

The list styling tags do not work for "Notes" or atleast only partially.

You can get the bullets etc. in Notes, but no checkboxes. i..e [] does not work for Notes

        Hi,

        Thanks for the answer. I'm afraid, checkboxes in notes is an exception case we would not implement, because it is against our vision on how they should be used. Moreover, it is difficult technically to keep states of checkboxes there.

        Sub-items is a supposed way to go for such cases.

        Kind regards,

        Hi Kirill

        Some of the reasons why I think you would want that -

        1) Consistency. Since Notes supports markdown. I would want it to support all the supported Markdown instead of a partial fraction.

        2) Often a list item could contain a "spec" / "ambition" of what needs to be done. And you would want the sub-list items to contain the "actions" of how to achieve the "spec" / "ambition".
        In absence of the Notes support for checkboxes, I am forced to create 2 additional layers of sub-list - "specs" and "actions".
        Hope you got the point.
        Also there might be other scenarios where it could be useful. But really the main thing is consistency and the ability to have full mark-down support in all areas (well basically notes and list items).

        Hello,

        Could you explain why would you want to add checkboxes to notes? It is reasonable to have a minor list in a note, but why have a checkbox? It cannot be completed - it is not a task.

        Kind regards,
