How can I escape special characters when using the Editor?

For example:

What I wantWhat I don't want
* 

As an aside, in creating this table, I've noticed that table editing features (add row, remove row) don't work in this text box. Also, the bullet point isn't showing up in that table. There's a bullet point there. (Using Firefox)

Try using the CMD (CTRL) + z shortcut. It will revoke the auto-formatting

Ah thanks @Christian Czaia. Works perfectly.
