Feature request: provide a preview for annotations (in releases) and for Bio: (in user Edit Profile)


#1

I understand that annotations can contain some text formatting style (wiki formatting). In that case, I would like to ask for providing a preview of the annotation, since there is plenty of space available to the right of the annotation text box.

Also, when editing my user’s profile, the “Bio:” textbox - does it support some text formatting too? If yes, then I would like to ask to provide a preview for it too.

Thanks

I think it will no longer be very necessary once we use Markdown as it is quite natural to read.

What is Markdown? Got a link?

Markdown is a standard way of formatting text for display. You can read more about it here; https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Markdown.

Markdown codes are easy to the eyes, indeed.
But in the same time, it is also easy to implement a preview. To spare the users from making errors.
