Open, Needs TriagePublic

Description

Steps to reproduce:

  1. Have a project description which includes markup in its first sentence, such as links in the format [text](https:/foo) or [[ https:/foo | text ]], or markup such as **bold text**.
  2. Go to a random task.
  3. Click "Edit task".
  4. In the "Tags" field, click the Magnifier button .
  5. Type ahead the name of the project.

Expected behavior:

  • Project descriptions that a human eye and brain can easily parse

Actual behavior:

  • Raw markup which makes things harder to read, plus limits the displayed information
