When posting a message in a team or channel, can I use Markdown?

Brass Contributor

I've gotten used to writing my own Markdown. I know that when posting a message in a MS Teams team or chat, that the message box has design icons for the message box, for things like making a string bold or italic. Does the MS Teams message box allow the user to enter their own Markdown? I would much rather do that, then depend upon the design icons for bold, italic, H1, H2, etc.

I totally agree. PITA. And, it's so hard to get out of the code blocks once they start.
