I’m so happy to hear that VooDooPad has new ownership and that it will continue to be upkept and improved upon. I have relied on this app for many years to keep notes on each of my web development projects, as well as for personal use at home. One of my biggest fears has been that the app might be abandoned one day.
My very best wishes to you and your team, and thank you!
I agree! Little things like that do make a big difference in usability.
I would also like to see the ability to scroll past the end of the text at the bottom of the window, like in BBEdit's preferences, where you can set "Extra vertical space in text views" to either "none," "Half window" (my favorite), or "Full window."
Also nice but not as big a deal would be the option to have extra inter-line spacing for plain text and Markdown pages (not just rich text), like in Ulysses's "General" preferences, where you can set "Paragraph spacing" to whatever you want. It has no effect on the actual content of the text or on the exported text; it's strictly for readability while you're working.
Add my voice to the chorus of those who are excited and hopeful that this old favorite unique app can come back to life!

Thanks for your suggestions Mat! I'll pass them along to my team as well.
There is currently support for changing line spacing for plain text page on Mac, through the Spacing option in the Format menu. Is this the kind of functionality you're looking for with markdown pages?
Yes! I didn't even notice that, since I just assumed Markdown and Plain
Text would behave pretty much the same way.
It's the paragraph spacing that I am most interested in. Also, not having
to set it on a page-by-page basis, but just being a global preference would
I'd just like to add my appreciation as well -- I'm so glad this app is being rescued. As a pretty serious home cook, I use VoodooPad as the perfect freeform recipe database, syncing between macOS and iOS, and I've never found anything else that works half as well for me. Thank you!

Thanks for the kind words! We did update the logo to be a little bit more upbeat; I'm glad you like it. If there's anything you'd like to see changed with VoodooPad in a future update, please let us know!
Thanks for following up! I've passed your request for spacing option support for Markdown pages along to my team, and we'll see if we can incorporate it into a future update!
