I think it would be a nice idea to have two tabs: preview and edit. Preview renders the markdown, edit lets you edit. GitHub does it this way, and it works quite well.
You do have that option. You can toggle the layout with
Meta + L.
Wouldn’t it be easier to have UI for it?
There is. Menu
View -> Toggle menu layout.
I mean like how GitHub does it, where you have the two tabs at the top that you can click back and forth between.
Ah, I see. This should be doable I think. I’m really bad with UI stuff, but for someone with experience in Electron and react this should be fairly easy.
The only disadvantage I can think of is that it will reduce the available space for the note, since you need one additional row for the 2 tabs.
@laurent what do you think? Is this something that could be done easily?
Speaking of that. Something I always found really good with the iA Writer app on android is that when in a note you swipe between edit and read mode. Is that the same as you guys mean? Or do you mean in the desktop client? Because if possible a believe that swiping in the app would be a nice workflow.
If Android app is ever up for redesign, swipe to preview would be a good feature. iAWriter does a good job.
I did. I hope @PopeRigby was too.
I'm pretty sure a pull request would be welcome. But I think it is more involved as you might think. The editor and preview components works differently on mobile.
I was talking about desktop, but I like the idea of swiping on mobile.
