Use "|" in table cells cause table broken and app quit unexpectedly

Testing version: Version 2.0 (10209)

What were you doing: Add “|” pipe symbol in cell

What feature did you use: Tables

What happened: Table broken and I don’t have possibility to fix this issue in Bear after it happened. Only one way to fix - export as md - correct table and import again

I know why it could happen - because in .md files pipe-symbol “|” is delimeter for new column but I don’t have possibility to view my notes as “raw”-markdown.

We are aware of this issue and we will provide escaping for pipes inside tables cells. However, I don’t seem to be able to replicate the crash and wonder if you can share a crashing MD table for tests.

  1. Firstly paste this table
Header #1 Header #2
row #1 row #2
Topic [OA 14.02.2023] Hello world
  1. Then you need add “I” between OA and 14.02.2023
  2. Then you need your cursor in the right corner outside of table and press Enter
Header #1 Header #2
row #1 row #2
Topic [OA 14.02.2023] Hello world Cursor should be outside of there and press Enter->

In my computer it goes to infinity “loading coursor mouse” and app not responding.
