Re Adding markers to descriptions
If you put in a grid reference into a place comment eg comment for a mountain, then the system notes this and gives it a letter like "A" which appears on the map However it only appears on the map when the relevant mountain is being displayed. There is no such feature in the track descriptions. The system does not pick up grid references in the text of descriptions.

Referring to letters like A in a track description is not useful since it will depend on what mountain is being displayed.

So it is correct that you can't find a way to do this since this there isn't a way.

Of course, on the other hand, if many people thought we should highlight grid references in track descriptions then it might be worth doing.
