A small use guide of markdown would be very useful.
Keep in mind that some users do not have computer skills. For example, REPORTER users.

I have no idea how to do it, but a toolbar would be fantastic. But yes, I really don't know much about markdown and it is lacking information in other websites. Something would be nice.

@ajtruckle
We have integrated SimpleMDE (https://simplemde.com) with MantisBT through a plugin. It's available at https://github.com/ejyothi/MantisBT-MarkDownEditor

Please try it and let us know your feedback.

@libregeek Great! Do I need to update my MantisBT environment itself or anything?

@libregeek I have it installed but I can't work out how to display this plugin when editing/adding a note.

Here are my comments so far:

On Internet explorer 11 and firefox I can see the toolbar when I am creating a new issue. But it does not show in the edit box for any note that is added and it really needs to for the reporter.

On Microsoft edge the toolbar is not showing even when I try to add an issue. The link here:

https://simplemde.com/

Has it working, so it should work in Edge.

AS for the ide feature, it is nice, but it would be wonderful if it could support links and images. The https://simplemde.com/ toolbar supports them. But those two toolbar icons are missing.
