Feature summary (what you would like to be able to do and where):
In the advanced menu, propose adding a way to select if the user wants to reply...
- Normally (:)
- As a bullet in a bulleted list (*)
- As a number in a numbered list (#)
If the comment above it at the same level is one of these things, it should default to that type.
Use case(s) (list the steps that you performed to discover that problem, and describe the actual underlying problem which you want to solve. Do not describe only a solution):
