how do I turn off the new code editor features? They're **SUPER** annoying to share code with...

Hey Maxime, we're afraid it's not possible to turn the WYSIWYG rich text editor off but you can hide the formatting toolbar on desktop by clicking on the Aa (Hide formatting) button to the right of the message input!

It's a gradual rollout so that we can make improvements as more feedback comes in! Thanks for bearing with us.

Hiding the toolbar doesn’t stop Slack from dropping you into wysiwyg though, sometimes in ways that are hard to escape 😕

Yeah, the toolbar I don't mind, it's the inline auto editting that's really really really really really annoying

I don't understand why there isn't a way to use either the WYSIWYG toolbar if you don't care to learn Markdown, OR just type normal markdown. I understand making things "easier" to use (WYSIWYG is never easier), but breaking everyone's workflow shouldn't be a precursor to that.

We hear you, Logan. Our intention was not to make things harder for power users and we're sorry for any hindrance to your workflow this has caused. We'll be sure to share this with the team.

This is awful. If you don't want to hemorrhage users you need to: 1) Make this optional, fast. Like, now. Unless your office is literally on fire, this should be your number 1 priority. 2) Apologize. 3) Promise not to introduce non-optional breaking changes again.

Very sorry it's been frustrating and we'll try for even better next time. We really appreciate the feedback as we will continue to make improvements to the editor. Every little bit helps. Thank you for your patience.

Totally agree that rich text editor is very annoying. Many times I need to copy a markdown message from another place and paste it to Slack message editor. New Slack didn't format my message as expected even though the msg markdown syntax is correct. Please help me turn it off.
