    Hi Stijn,

    Thanks for the suggestion! I've created an issue in our backlog to take a look at this. We'll update this issue when there's more information.

    This feature helps a lot in that I can use it in a project's README.md to remind me of all my to-dos. I would be extremely grateful if Bitbucket devs could add on this feature. Thanks a million.

    I tried using the same syntax as I have been using on Github (for a long time now) to achieve the same result and it does nothing. Any updates on this? This feature makes managing tasks much easier, and my students really enjoy it on Github - what would it take to encourage the addition of this functionality here in BB?

    Please, render plain-text [_] in .md file to unicode ☐ symbol on web-page.

    • [_] U+2610 ☐ ballot box
    • [v] U+2611 ☑ ballot box with check
    • [x] U+2612 ☒ BALLOT BOX WITH X (square with cross)

    it's three checkbox states for Todo, Done, Declined

    OK, so I think this request is being ignored due to the (in my opinion ) wrongly marked duplicate tag. This is the original issue not the duplicate. can someone please re evaluate this ? This feature would be really helpful. If that isnt the reason then maybe we are supposed to pay for one of the add ons that has this feature, If so, just please say that so we know where we stand. Theres already been two members moved to github and paid for the private repo and im sure there will be more.

    I'm not sure why this wasn't marked as "open" until now. We're currently going through our public issue tracker and updating the statuses of existing issues.

    This is something that would be nice to have, but we have quite a bit of technical debt as a part of our markup rendering and as far as I know, this is not currently on the roadmap.

    Atlassian, you suck! There are so many trivial improvements you could make to your app, but you resist for no good reason.

    I have a collection of UserScripts to make Bitbucket less shit.
