Where did "monospace" font go?

Where did the Monospace font go in the new editor?

It appears to have been replaced by a "Code" font (on the same shortcut) that doesn't support things like bold or italics, so is harder to call out specific parts of the text you're writing.

On pages or parts of pages imported from the legacy editor, italics are showing in the text that has been marked as "code", but the italic letters are surrounded by large spaces.

Anyone know how to get the old monospace font back?

Similar requests have been made here in our community and the results where the same, we need to use the new “code” formatting. Either via toolbar or using  ` on either side of what we want to have monospaced!

Here is one of those posts:

Also, some time ago the noformat macro has been removed from the new editor, as shown under this document:
