Markdown: incorrect/incomplete advice on iPassword help page?

I think your Markdown help page is possibly wrong or incomplete?
https://support.1password.com/markdown

I notice when I do a dash'd list, e.g:

- something
- something more
- something else
- something other

on hitting Save it ends up looking like:

• something
• something more
• something else
• something other

But your support page says that it's only an asterisks (*) that should make dots (•) on save:
● Bulleted list | * List item

I'm not that au fait with Markdown. Are there different versions on products that use it, or is this expected behaviour, just without the help page mentioning it?

  • From John Gruber's Markdown Syntax Documentation:

    Unordered lists use asterisks, pluses, and hyphens — interchangably — as list markers

    Yep; this is expected behavior. I'll file an issue for the documentation team to take a look. Thanks. :)

    Thanks. Yeah I know Gruber invented it ;-)

    Trouble is that the average user here isn't gonna know what's wrong, if it's not on the 1Password chart for them to see – or perhaps additionally on that page, simply add a link to Gruber's original Markdown Syntax Documentation page?

    The difficulty with that is we (intentionally) don't support the full scope of markdown. We only support a subset.

    That is a very valid point and I've asked our docs folks to look at how we can improve this.

    Added a note to Format your secure notes with Markdown:

    Asterisks (*), hyphens (-), or plus signs (+) all work.
