LAUNCHED: Markdown in comments

In our team, we use comments for:

  • Design reviews;
  • Technical questions;
  • Content discussions.

Our comments thread can become pretty long, and we often feel the need for formatting such as adding hyperlinks in text, quoting, listing.

One simple way to solve that would be to be able to add some simple markdown features for formatting in comments. We were using them a lot in Abstract, and we greatly miss them in Figma.


Plus one for enabling markdown in comments. At the very least, bold, italic, and hyperlinks would be great quality of life improvements and extremely useful for our team.

Block quotes would be pretty neat too :wink:
