KirbyText edge case help

I’ve run into a nasty edge case with KirbyText…
Here’s what I need for one single line of text that is entered via a textarea in a structure field:

  • Line should start with a * but not be transformed to a bullet point
  • The text of the line should be italic
  • The first leter of the text should be bold

Which in my textarea would look like that:
** Testing this*

I works on Discourse but not here with the following tests (the first one is the working example in Discourse):

** **T**esting this*
****T**esting this*
* * **T**esting this*

You need to escape the asterisk if you want a literal character:

Thanks @texnixe. I obviously didn’t think of that!
