Bug in markdown rendering of dates

DT 3.7.1 on macOS 11.3.1; Region: Germany; First day of week: Monday; Calendar: Gregorian; Time format: 24-Hour Time; Preferred languages: English (UK) - Primary, German (Germany)

Note the Date & Time. Now take a look at the annotation itself:

Note the date & time in the left panel (identical to the date & time in the annotations inspector) and in the right panel (which seems always to default to the 1st of the month, and seems to gain a line and a tab).

Kind of as expected, this is not specific to markdown annotations:

  2. May 2021

The forum software also interprets this input as a list rather than a date, but at least does not then start the list from 1, so the only impact is removal of the initial 0 and addition of a tab.

Thanks for the bug report! Seems that MultiMarkdown needs some escaping in this case.

The next release will improve the placeholder handling in case of Markdown templates. E.g. 6. May 2021 at the beginning of a line will be converted to 6\. May 2021 and rendered as expected.
