MS Teams latest update code snippet shortcut gone

New Contributor



I have noticed in the latest team update you cannot do 3 backticks ``` anymore as a shortcut for a code snippet box. You can start ` and end ` with a backtick but this only works for one line of code, which isn't very useful.


I know you can still do it the long clicky way by going to the format box and clicking "code snipppet etc" but this is extremely annoying to do 20 times per day.


Does anyone know if there is a new shortcut for this?

Same issue. Seems odd to have been changed from the universal ``` format if they changed it. My guess is it's a bug.
Have your reported it?

@cakehead123 Yes, through the feedback mechanism in the app. 

Sweet, I will too, let me know if you find anything out?

@cakehead123 try adding a space after the 3 back ticks. 

Try adding a space after the three backticks, that fixed the issue for me.
Just came back to say I accidentally discovered the space thing and that does work for me. Silly.


the space worked for me too, but the formatting/spacing isn't maintained... ughhhh... why?! So frustrating!

for me three backspaces followed by a whitespace does not work,


But monospaced in the Teams Area is working...

Monospaced in the Chat Area is not working...


Using Code Snippet is working in both...
