Auto formatting is very inconvenient

Things like - > or > > (write it without the space) is automatically converted into → and >> respectively. This is inconvenient as sometimes you don’t actually want it to be formatted. Currently, there is no way of removing this formatting.

--> this is a lua comment
-- this is a lua comment
-->> this is a lua comment

As you can see, it looks quite janky.

I don’t see the problem. I’d want direct characters over stuff like “->” since they can be understoof 0.002 secomds faster. Comments don’t look bad to me.

What annoys me the most, is the emojis. If I want to write : P (without a space), I can’t, because it is automatically changed to :stuck_out_tongue:

Hey! Formatting for the code block was fixed accidentally after an issue was resolved in another thread:

Here’s what it looked like before:

Although, the fact still remains. It’s better to let the user decide what they want to do instead of forcing a specific look.


We’re looking into this one, thanks.


after playing around with the \ character (backslash), i’ve (kind of) found a way to do it, but it has to have a character at the end. if you try it waith no char or an invisible one, the :P. turns into :P\.

the bypass:


you can replace it with whatever emoticon you want btw
