I spend most of my time doing my writing in markdown. One of the features I have mixed feelings about, is auto-numbering of ordered. There are often times when I need to modify the numbering. I like to do this by adding a backslash (\) before the period after the number, which renders the list as text. If you want to render the list with the ol/li markup, you can write the exact markup you want in your markdown document and it will render without any modifications.
I spend a lot of my time communicating in Bitbucket (and in GitHub) and I’ve come to love writing in markdown. Unfortunately, I’ve noticed Bitbucket changed their editing experience to use a WYSIWYG (What You See Is What You Get) editor instead of my beloved markdown area. This is the setting I changed to turn it back to a markdown field.
