Hey there @John K.22 - are you still having issues with this?

A way to tackle this behavior would be to have a space after the first asterisk or a space prior to the second asterisk (this way the text between the asterisks will not render to result in italics).

Having said that and as I understand this is not exactly what you were looking for, I wanted to thank you for this feedback! We are always looking for ways to improve Paper, so I’ll make sure your comments are passed along to our development team.

If you have any more feedback, questions or suggestions in the meantime, please let me know.

If not useful, you can undo italtics rendered by * by writing the statement and adding * after.
