Markdown keyboard shortcuts inserting on wrong side of cursor

Steps to reproduce

Click on some text in a bullet to edit, so that the cursor is resting at the end. (Using a vertical bar, |, to represent the cursor.)

Some sentence.|

Hit command+l, command+i, or command+b.

Expected result

The markdown should insert at the end of the text, and the cursor should now be after the inserted markdown. Say I hit command+i:

Some text.__|

Actual result

I get this:

Some text.|__

That is, the markdown inserts directly after my cursor position rather that directly before. This makes it cumbersome to type italic text, since I now have to use the arrow key to move back to the end position in the text.

Additional information

I’m not sure when this started to happen. Probably fairly recently.

I can confirm this on Win10/Chrome as well. If it doesn’t get a reply in 2-4 days, I’ll (or you can) ping Erica.

Has @Erica been pinged?

Yes. It’s fixed but the release hasn’t gone out yet. Soon!

Update: this should be fixed now!
