Description Am Jam 2020-05-20 18:15:30 UTC
In LibreCalc, there is a bug in the markdown used within comments. Any hyphenated word will remove all hyphens and will stirke-through the whole comment. 

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Right click on any cell
2. Click "Insert Comment"
3. Write any sentence with a hyphen, e.g., "-15: Temperature needed for cool-down"

Actual Results:
Notice how the first hyphen before "15" is removed, the hyphen between "cool" and "down" is removed, and the whole line is marked as strike-through.

Expected Results:
A comment that just says "-15: Temperature needed for cool-down" with no bold, italics, or strike-through in the comment whatsoever. 

Reproducible: Always

User Profile Reset: Yes

OpenGL enabled: Yes

But it's in discussion to change the default to off
