Having textareas with markdown formatting is appealing to me but not everybody is as positive as I am.

Using the HTML buttons could perhaps make the experience a bit more gentle. Editing the H1-6 buttons seemed to be a no-brainer at first. But if I could figure out how to have those buttons append a new line to the headings I would have to handle a lot less complaints about how stupid Markdown is when Wordpress has wysiwyg-editors like Word...

So. Is there a way to achieve a new line with the HTML-buttons?



The HTML button setting fields won't let you pass a line break to the textarea field, so there's no direct way to do it via the button. You may need to look into an alternative markdown fieldtype add-on.
