What issue do you have?

Text formatted as Inline Code within a table does not persist after switching between the RTE and markdown editor.

A: Create a table and populate it with content.
B: Select any text in the table, and press Ctrl + ` to format the text as inline-code.
C: Switch to the MD editor. Notice that all inline code formatting has been stripped.
D: Switch to the RTE editor, and confirm all inline code formatting is gone.


Unfortunately, in the current state of the application, this doesn't seem to be supported.
The only work around is to manually place code tags around the text you want to be rendered as inline-code directly in the markdown editor:


It would be much appreciated if inline code support in tables would apply and persist when setting it in the RTE.

Thanks for any consideration. I would really like to see this supported.
