Coming along nicely. One suggestion: use the de facto standard Markdown # for autoformatted headings rather than the (legitimate but not so widely-used) == underlining.

Odd not to have text select-drag-drop here. It's slightly compensated for by the almost-an-outliner type "move paragraphs" function, but still I miss it. Perhaps it's coming.

Overall, though: great. Elegant and fuss-free

Great editor. Is there any chance that Texts will have auto-save?

I tried a lot of different Markup editors but Texts is most pleasant to use.

- You see what you get, no need for additional preview window.
- Easy to use and remember shortcuts
- It's only app that I know that allow to convert RTF text to markdown just by copy/paste what is huge time saver.
- You can copy html output for just selected text or for all text, not much apps offer this feature

I'm glad that I found this app out, RTF converting is what I did looking for a long time.

If you working with markdown give it a try.

There are a significant number of plain text/markdown apps currently vying for your attention (Byword, Folding Text, Multimarkdown Composer, Ulysses 3 and…). Format longevity and collaboration are key strengths of plain text. The Texts app adds cross-platform, rich editing convenience while magically producing plain text documents, formatted with markdown syntax. I'm impressed right now and going forward Texts has tremendous potential. Check it out. Very likely a 5-star app in the not too distant future.

Please note that now this app is no more free, but costs 29$ (14,5$ for a limited time), for a license for both mac and win.

Very simple and yet feature rich app. But as a long time Ulysses user, I would like more flexibility in managing output fonts and paragraphs. The dev is very responsive, so I hope we will see a lot of improvements in the future!

Early days, but a very promising Markdown editor which displays in preview mode while hiding the markup, (so you get bold, headings, lists etc) but saves in Markdown text. Elegant UI, seems very stable and a welcome addition to the range of MD/minimalist editors by virtue of the clever trick of showing you RTF but saving in TXT. Neat. (My ratings are based on what it does *now*. If it carries on this way, it'll be 5-star, I imagine.)
