Format milestone description?

I wrote a nice, expository description for a new milestone in my project and saved it.  And ended up with a wall of text.

Can I have paragraphs in a milestone description?  Or horizontal lines?  Or any kind of delimiting markup to make more than a handful of sentences easier to read?

What I tried was putting one blank line between paragraphs, two blank lines between paragraphs, ending the last line of a paragraph with two blank spaces and then a blank line, and headings like “Foo\n===” and separators like “* * *”.  None of this made any difference.


Hi @exarkun,

Thanks for being a part of the GitHub Community Forum!

Because this is a bit for a feature requst, I would actually recommend that you reach out via our contact form. For now, the best way to submit bug reports or feature requests (either about or the GitHub Community Forum) is via our contact page ( GitHub Staff will see and respond to those requests there.

That said, I do want to share that we are working on a new tool and process for submitting these sorts of things. This is still in the investigative stage, and I don’t have a timeline to share, but we are planning on improving this process.

We also recognize the desire for feature requests to be visible to other users, commented on, and even voted on. These are all things that we are taking into consideration when looking at implementing a new process.

Thank you so much for the feedback! I’ll be locking this thread from further replies, and I encourage you to send your feature request via the contact form linked above.
