Windows paths don't show backslashes due to escaping

Steps to reproduce

Add a windows path: C:\Program Files (x86)\Google\Chrome\Application\chrome.exe
The slashes aren’t shown (when surrounded by backticks or not)

Expected result

A way to keep the inline slashes visible

Actual result

Instead of the expected result, what happened?


Which operating system are you using? Win 10 / Mac / Linux
Which browser are you using? Chrome / Firefox / Vivaldi / Firefox
If you’re using a desktop or mobile app, what’s the version number of Dynalist? Browser version
Are you using any third-party scripts for Dynalist, e.g. PowerPack?

Additional comments

I believe this was due to a recent change. I use paths a lot and I think I would have noticed this before.

There was another issue filed in #help Backslash not displayed anymore?

I’ve made a fix and we’ll be pushing it out soon.

It’s fixed! Thanks for the quick response :100:

Backslash visibility changed in another way recently – I guess either as a side effect of whatever caused this bug, or as a side effect of the fix. Basically, an initial backslash (in an item title) is now visible, whereas previously it would have been hidden.
