How to enable markdown in task description?

I’m coming from Trello and Planka.

Here is the sample markdown I’m using:

1. [Welcome](
2. [A Map of the Territory](
3. [The Lox Language](
4. [Scanning](

In Trello, when you paste this, it automatically shows the rendered html. In Planka, you actually have to save the description for it to render.

When I’m pasting the same in Vikunja, and saving the description, the description is still shown in text.

Am I missing anything?

Pasting markdown is not supported. You can use markdown shortcuts though while writing.

What can we do to enable that behaviour?

Markdown shortcuts are always on, pasting markdown is not implemented, so not something you can just “enable”.
