Emphasis links do not work



Hello guys, there is some problem with italic links when the URL has "(" and ")", example: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Discourse_(software)

Steps for replay:

  1. Put the link https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Discourse_(software)
    to “Wikipedia Discourse”
  • Select the “Wikipedia Discouse” link, and clic on “Emphasis” (or Crtl + i)
  • Check the result.

Final result:
Wikipedia Discourse

Trying with other link (other case)
Discouse Emphasis

So, I think the problem was the “( )” symbols.
Could you check?

OK so use one of the other dozen plus ways to achieve this?

Discourse Emphasis

<i><a href="https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Discourse_(software)">Discourse Emphasis</a></i>

Discourse Emphasis

_[Discourse Emphasis][1]_

[1]: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Discourse_(software)

I can go on…
