Make markdown symbols re-appear when selecting a word

Is your feature request related to a problem? Please describe.
When I write a * before and after a word it instantly makes it italics and the * disappear. This way I can’t edit the markdown symbols I used.

Describe the solution you’d like
It would be useful if I could click on the word or type a backspace to make the markdown symbols reappear, so that I can edit them (add another *, change it to another symbol.
