Zach Brogan, you are my new best friend! I _strongly_ prefer to write in Markdown, and when doing things in Google Docs, despite it having a “markdown” option, code blocks never worked. This is where the “Backtick” Chrome extension comes in to save the day.

It just works, and converts all my backticked words and phrases into preformatted code-type blocks.

Thanks you!
