On 2019 – 11 – 20 Slack rolled out a new version of the editor. This editor featuresWYSIWYGfunctionality, which shows all message formatting inline in the text box.

As of this time, Slack does not allow users to disable this functionality and revert back to the plaintext markdown editor. Until Slack implements this functionality, you can use this bookmarklet to temporarily disable all WYSIWYG A / B tests, which should restore the old editor functionality.

  3. Navigate to a Slack workspace in that browser
  4. Execute the bookmarklet to disable the WYSIWYG editor
