Add Markdown highlight support


#1

Please add Markdown highlight support. Thanks


#2

It is available on desktop, but not on mobile - yet.


#3

Is it possible to add a dedicated icon on the toolbar on desktop app?


#4

dedicated icon for what?


#5

I mean: add an icon in the toolbar a
to highlight text, jut like B to bold text.


#6

last I checked Markdown doesnt support a highlight function but rather uses HTML5’s <mark> feature.


#7

I might have misunderstood. @desk7 did you mean syntax highlighting or the <mark> html code?


#8

Simply the <mark> html code


#9

Ok, <mark> is supported to be rendered in Joplin, but it is used internally to highlight search results.
Thus using <mark> could lead to confusion.

Anyhow, I was originally talking about syntax highlighting, which is currently supported by the desktop versions, but not the mobile versions.
