KG01 - Why is this so complicated.  Such system language hides the power of
the tool. The tool should understand natural language inputs.

Perhaps we could explore ways to provide such system-oriented syntax to the
user in the context of the task.  In other words, update the UI design to
include a way to evoke a cheat sheet, or even better, implement a way for
the user to insert syntax using natural language, with the system
interpreting behind the scenes.

I suppose this is a broader usability theme that appears throughout the
toolset. We should explore ways reduce the complexity of system-oriented
command inputs and make advanced capabilities more consumable to less
technical users.

After all, this is a tool to help people capture their thoughts and share
ideas - not a development environment.
