Add Markdown highlight support


Please add Markdown highlight support. Thanks


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


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


dedicated icon for what?


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


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


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


Simply the <mark> html code


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.
