I did a fresh install of linux-mint OS. With this, I had to freshly setup the atom too. After setting up, I noticed that the markdown syntax for level headings are not appearing as usual.
The above picture shows how the syntax is appearing at present (after installing OS and atom freshly). I am pretty sure, in the previous configuration, the level headings (apart from appearing red in colour) were appearing bold too.
Details of the present setup that might be relevant for this issue -
Theme used - Atom Material
Syntax Theme - One light
Packages installed - markdown writer, markdown preview plus and markdown folder
With these packages (and few others), I am sure the level headings were coming red and bold in One Light syntax theme in my previous configuration.
So, not sure what I have missed or what has gone wrong. Any help on how can I make them appear as usual? (Or, have i completely mistaken and this is how it should appear? In that case, looks like some of my memory too got reformatted :P)
