Markdown: Skip issue number parsing in knowledgebase article

I'm trying to put examples of commit messages into a kb article e.g.

An example commit message is: "#OB-123 an example commit"

Trouble is, it's parsing the OB-123 and replacing it with the title on the issue, and a link. So it ends up as:

An example commit message is: "#OB-123: an example issue an example commit"

How can I prevent it from parsing the issue number? I've tried escaping, and various tricks like italicising the dash, which didn't work. For now I've settled with putting the text into an inline code block but there must be a better way that I'm missing.

Hello Richard, thanks for the details. This is actually a bug in the 2020.2 version which is resolved in the newest version 2020.4. The issue id with the `#` symbol should not be converted to the issue summary.

If your license allows, please upgrade your installation. Let me know if the problem is resolved after the upgrade.

Feel free to ask if you have any further questions, I'll be happy to help.

Hello Richard, thanks for your post.

I can't reproduce this behavior so far.

Could you please let me know the version number of your YouTrack? Also, please share a screenshot of the article edit form with this example there and a screenshot of how the result looks like.

Thank you!
