The Markdown help page of the Help Center contains a misleading piece of information about a shortcut key. It says in the Images section:

You can also press CTRL+I to insert an image.

However, in Italics and Bold it mentions the same combination:

You can also select text and press CTRL+I or CTRL+B to toggle italics or bold respectively.

It doesn't make much sense to overload a single key combination with two distinct operations, and indeed it only works for toggling italics for me, not for inserting an image. And I believe that is how it is meant to work, because the correct combination for inserting an image is actually CTRL+G, which can be found in the tooltip appearing when you hover over the Image toolbar button:

Editor textbox toolbar

I believe this should be reflected in the Help Center. Specifically, the above mentioned line from the Images section of the Markdown help page should actually read:

You can also press CTRL+G to insert an image.

replacing "CTRL+I" with "CTRL+G".

  • I second your proposal.
