Strange Behavior with Greater than 4 Exclamation Points

Recommended Posts

When writing into a text note using the web interface on Chrome (either Windows 10 - version 58.0.3029.81 or Ubuntu 16.04 - version 58.0.3029.81 (64-bit))  when I type five exclamation points, the first four disappear, and the 5th is highlighted in yellow, and all text following the five exclamation points are highlighted in yellow too.

This doesn't happen on the native version on Android. 

Update: doesn't happen on the web interface using Microsoft Edge 38.14393.1066.0 as the browser.

Looks like this is may be a Chrome issue. I'm going to leave this here as a reference, and hit up Google.

It sounds like this is a shortcut to begin highlighting. On the ios app there are a few. The only one I use a lot (therefore remember) is if you type three dashes followed by ENTER the dashses convert into a solid line. This is a relatively recent enhancement that came out around the time Evernote 8 for ios did. I'm willing to bet it's a similar thing.
