Creating continuous markdown bullets via dictation


#1

I dictate to Drafts a lot. And I use markdown a lot. Combining the two is a challenge though.

I can say “plus sign yadda yadda yadda” to create a markdown bullet item, but I can’t create an automatically bulleted next item. “New line” doesn’t do it.

Is there a syntax available to get a bullet to repeat? For that matter, is there a better syntax (other than saying “plus sign”) to dictate a markdown bulleted list?

Thanks so much for the most powerful app I’ve ever owned!

Drafts doesn’t use it’s own dictation engine, it’s relying on system dictation, so it’s not going to understand or anticipate markdown syntax, unfortunately.
