Improved italic and bold support

I have no idea if this would be helpful for anyone else, but as a writer (and fast typer) it would certainly help me.

I would love to see a fast way to "get out of" bold/italic markup. As it stands now I've got to arrow over (or ⌥ + arrow) to continue on without formatting.

As far as how to get this to work, the best thing I've come up with is to have a "double space" inside the bold/italic markup to move the cursor to the outside.

I know this seems like a really small thing, but moving my hand over to the arrows mosdef slows things down, and a little touch like this would be really nice… at least for me!

    Why not just use the same shortcut again, e.g. Cmd-B or Cmd-I (or both
    if necessary)? That's what it's there for.

     Thanks Fletcher… I had completely missed that! (is it in the manual?)

    I'm not sure if it's in the manual, but it's typical OS X behavior. Cmd-B to toggle on, Cmd-B to toggle off.
