Joplin is great, but I would prefer it to be dumber - I only want my notes to be plain text files! They can be stored as .md, I don't mind, but it would be nice to copy paste some stuff that starts with markdown-recognized characters and just see those characters, not what markdown would turn them into if I decided to look at the preview.
For example, I believe I have disabled the preview pane as I'm only looking at a single pane which is not the rich-text-editor, but pasting some random text (I know this looks like code, but imagine if I just liked to use the # character to highlight things in my plain text files when I'm doing some writing):
plain text # ooh, I should note this cool thing and I like using the # character to note it for example my plain text
EDIT: oops, it even happens here so I've indented it. I just want to use Joplin as if I was writing a .txt in vim!
Into my editor, the line "#" makes the line become massive because the editor considers it as a title. I thought I could press the button to look at the preview if I wanted to see what the result of the markdown would be, so why do I need it in my editor? Can this be disabled? Both the editor and the preview doing the same thing seems odd.
Perhaps I can tag all of my notes to be default no-markdown? I guess making everything I write considered code by indenting would work, but I'd rather not indent literally all of my notes from now until forever so that they aren't parsed!
Thanks very much! I'm happy to change the code on my end if I could find the place where the editor does this
