How can I stop auto conversion for tags?

What I did: I need to type something like “Book #1

What happened: the “#1” got converted into a tag

What I expected: I want it to not be a tag.

Things that might be helpful to know (Agenda version, OS and model, etc):
macOS Catalina, Agenda 9.3.1

We support some markdown features, and the hash is used to indicate a tag.

Some options to avoid it:

  • Use some other character. Eg. Book (1)
  • Use preformatted paragraph style or fixed width text style. eg. if you apply the fixed width style just to the hash symbol — before adding the 1 — it should all work

We would like to add true escaping of the special meaning in future, but we haven’t gotten to that yet.

Thanks for the quick response! I just bought Agenda 2 days ago and I’ve been loving it. It’s on track to replace 3 other apps for me! I understand you guys are still a small team so I don’t mind waiting. Keep up the good work!

That’s fantastic to hear, thank you so much for your support!

I have the problem when I use tags #book 1:1
It will break it into two parts #book 1 and :1Will not include in the tags

Tags can’t have punctuation or spaces at this point, except the hyphen and underscore. We have plans to make them more versatile. Stay tuned!
