Stop # turning text into H1 automatically?

Hi! I can’t figure this one out and I assume it’s fairly simple.

I’ve built a client portal for social media posting and we commonly use hashtags. There’s something in the platform that says the first instance of # is shortcode or something to turn the text into H1 automatically.

How can I disable this?

In the example the new line here is #CX, but its formatting it into H1. This data comes from Airtable.


Try creating a text string with a backslash


to ‘escape’ the Markdown

# This will not be a header

Or try inline HTML:

<span>#</span> This will not be a header
