I spend a lot of my time communicating in Bitbucket (and in GitHub) and I’ve come to love writing in markdown.

This is the setting I changed to turn it back to a markdown field.
When using Vim you can find your <Leader> by using echo for the value of “mapleader”, however there are some edge cases that make this less than ideal. If “mapleader” is undefined an error is thrown instead of showing the default <Leader>. If “mapleader” is not a visible character (e.g. <Space> or <Tab>), you can not see the value. I use the following command to display <Leader> while working around these edge cases.
