Jun 12 '19 at 6:45 comment added Josh I may just be mistaken @muru — I turned off Smart Punctation a long time ago because it interferes with too many things for me
Jun 12 '19 at 6:01 comment added muru @Josh I tested and there wasn't any automatic conversion to ellipsis for me (even with Smart Punctuation on). Are you using the default iOS English keyboard?

Jun 12 '19 at 5:52 comment added muru @MrWhite because it doesn't really matter. With Markdown, you can do - - - (note the spaces) or *** to get horizontal rules. ≥ 3 of any of hyphens/asterisks/underscores (with or without spaces in between) will do. Similarly for headers, there's the ##... syntax. That said, OP probably doesn't realise this.

Jun 11 '19 at 23:07 comment added MrWhite You'd think that the "creator of Markdown" would at least comment on the resulting conflict with Markdown?!
Jun 11 '19 at 16:11 comment added Maxim @Harper Why does it have to be permanent? Can't you turn off the Smart Punctuation while using it, then turn it back on when done?
Jun 11 '19 at 3:42 comment added Josh Doesn’t it also convert three periods (...) into an ellipsis (…) ?

Jun 10 '19 at 16:05 comment added scohe001 What else does Smart Punctuation affect? I'd love to turn this off, but you should probably include the full effects so future readers don't get any nasty surprises.
