Adding functionality to the toolbar

I was going through other note-taking apps online and one thing that everyone had was a strike-text button just like LOREM IPSUM

like this

(we can also implement the Underline button too)

Laurent said that strike-through is not supported because of it not being a part of markdown spec

if by this he implies using HTML syntax like but I guess you can add strike using tilde
~~ () ~~ () so any thoughts @laurent @tessus

If you think that this feature should be implemented, I would like to work on this and create a pull request

I really like this idea.
Discourse itself supports it using <s> <\s>, same for GitHub, see

I use it, when I have to edit a mistake in post but want to show what changed, as well as for to-dos

We can support that with a plugin but it won’t be in the toolbar. With the exception of file attachment, the toolbar buttons are only for standard Markdown features.

could we have placeholder for plugin in the toolbar, so in case of malfunction etc. it can be easily deactivated ?

That’s a major change and haven’t thought much about it.

In general I’m not so keen on non-standard Markdown features because it makes rendering more and more complex and limit the improvements we can make. And the more we add, the more it becomes a hybrid markup that works only in Joplin, which means you can no longer move around your data easily or edit it with other software.

If @laurent want to keep the toolbar limited to markdown functions there would be also tables for example
I asked for that in this topic

that is true, cross-compatibility has to be considered. Someone has to summarize /

for the record the closed PR
