Shortcuts Issue - Escaped Markdown in Ulysses

I’m using Shortcuts to create some templates in Ulysses for different types of things I write. The Markdown is written in a text field in the Shortcut. When creating a new Ulysses sheet, however, the markdown characters are escaped with a backslash.

Anyone run into this before and know how to fix it? I haven’t had the time to dig in too deep myself.
