Sideffects of skipping markdown escaping in MarkdownSerializer


We replaced our non wysiwyg markdown editor with a prosemirror based richtext. The downside is that for markdown experienced users some inputs now take more time as before as for example links etc.

My question is: Are there any sideffects when skipping the markdown escaping in some cases, so users can still use the markdown syntax within the editor?

I’am aware that the markdown will be rendered when editing the content and it would not be 100% wysiwyg, but I think this would be acceptable.


I guess, I rather try optimizing the usability e.g. edit link on click and some further InputRules etc.


I suspect that’ll get messy, and indeed, trying to do this with input rules is probably a better idea.
