Joplin looks very good !
My usual work environment is Mac Os but I switched to Linux and looked for similar software as MacJournal, just to tell you about my background.
Mark down is the latest hype nowadays and many applications seem to build around this idea. Which per se is fantastic and I mean it that way.
Let’s come to the point.
Basically, rtf is also a formatted raw text.
Maybe you won’t like my idea if I suggest you to implement a WYSIWYG option to for the rest of us .
Mark down is for folks who code, not for everyday users.
I’d suggest to add the option to hide the mark down section and make the WYSIWYG section editable. For those who don’t like mark down or “coding text in a raw editor”
My post isn’t a critique and everybody should be free to write as he or she likes. WYSIWYG capabilities wouldn’t destroy the image of Joplin
