I would love for Voodopad to have a full-featured markdown editor like Bear or Multimarkdown Composer.

    Hi Timothy,

    Thanks for reaching out to us! I think you also reached out via email, but if you wouldn't mind elaborating a little bit on what you mean by "full-featured markdown editor" either here or through email that would be very helpful! Markdown support is available on Mac and iOS, though we're always eager to hear suggestions on how to improve the functionality.

    All the best,

    Hi Collin,

    Yes. VoodooPad handles markdown syntax, but doesn’t provide the kinds of
    editing tools provided by dedicated markdown editors. For instance, I
    really lie to be able to move paragraphs up and down with a keystroke,
    especially within hierarchical bullets. I also like that when I enter a
    paired code like for bold or italics it adds the beginning and ending
    codes. Some kind of integrated preview would also be nice. I currently use
    Marked2 to preview formatted pages.

    Of course, the iOS VoodooPad app has fewer aids for Markdown formatting and

    Maybe I’ve become spoiled by having all the special keystrokes in the
    dedicated Markdown editors.

    Hi Timothy,

    I see, thanks for the detailed response! I'll pass this information along and see if we can incorporate some of this functionality in a future VoodooPad update. If there's anything else you can think of that you'd like to see us support, please let us know and I'll ensure that we look into it.

    Thanks for your suggestions!

    All the best,

    +1, this was main missing functionality stopped me from purchasing this app, another reason is lack of sign being actively maintained (Thank you primatelabs for saving it)

    Now, exporting as Markdown formatting would be also interesting, integration into static code generator systems, Hugo and so on, but that's another story.
