How do I use the "#" without it formatting into a header?

My company uses the "#" for lots of things. Example: "A #10 envelope"  But whenever we type that in the description field, it automatically formats to a heading. How can we stop that from happening?

Hi @Eric Connell , 


in order to have the # character displayed, you should add a "\" character in front, like this : 


This is a \#10 envelope


Let me know if this helps, 



THANK YOU SO MUCH!!! This works perfect!
