I noticed if I add a colon th the end of a line and start to create an item, the colon text becomes highlighted, but once you continue to type any info into that item, the text reverts back to normal. (see screenshot)
This is actually intended. In standard Markdown if you put a “-” under a line of text it turns into a H2 header… so that’s what is happening and why it is turning bold until you turn it into a list item.
Ah, that totally makes sense, I forgot about that alternative way of setting headings. Thanks for the update.
