Good but not great. UI is buggy when you are resizing. You need to have a new-line before starting a list. There is no dark mode - but there is a stupid mode, where you can set the editor/preview in dark mode. But not the whole app (it looks weird). Further, horizontal line does not show well in dark theme. Finally, simple things like select few lines of code and do shift-tab does not work. Basically the software is overpriced for the quality and effort put into it.

Not nearly as good as the simple, elegant and free Mou (I donated there) for rapid composing. Lightbox has too many bells and whistles and is kind of clunky on the screen in comparison. But I couldn't get postbox quality output from Markdown business letters in Mou. The export PDF does the trick almost at default settings in LightPaper. Delighted with the purchase as I have no other way of turning Markdown business letters into truly printable versions which doesn't take a lot of custom fiddling with formatting (waste of time). In the end, I'm delighted I own LightPaper too.

Ahoy, there, 42 squares! You still developing this fine app? Haven't seen much dust in about a quarter, and I'm just trying to stir you up! This app is sooooo close to really great, that I do hope you carry it forward. LOVE everything the mini does, and I use it as my go-to scribbler. But with some tweaks on the Editor, this thing could do it all. My personal wish? A bit more "pretty" and functionality on the document sidebar. Last doc sorts at least...

Easily the best markdown editor. The ONLY thing I hate is that EVERY time I open the app a popup encourages me to Subscribe to the their list. I subscribed, but still appears every time when the app is started. Until I click in Join or Cancel, the app doesn't responses, I can't close it until I click one of these options. Anoying.

The MacUpdate-Price (9.99 USD) seems to be wrong, LightPaper is on sale for 14.99 USD and the regular (?) price seems to be 19.98 USD now. At least that’s what the pop-up says after updating to version 1.2. I actually didn't know this was a paid upgrade – now I can use this previously free software for only seven days without purchase! I'd really love to now when a free software gets paid software *before* I hit the update-button! Please add informations about the price/upgrade fee in the pop-up/update-notification!

Is this working on El Capitan? It doesn't look like it's being updated, which is a shame. It's the best replacement for WriteMonkey if you're coming from Windows. It's the only OSX markdown editor that actually has useful features, such as tabs and folder view. Other editors are either too minimal, or too bloated. I was hoping it would add a few more writing features, such as word count for selected text, option to exclude comments from word count, and more detailed statistics similar to WriteMonkey. (Words, characters, paragraphs, sentences, pages and more elaborate statistics like word frequencies, lexical density, Gunning Fog index.) This could have been the best writing software for mac, would the developer consider making it open source?

This is the only markdown editor I know with three panes. Two for the standard markdown and preview, but a third for folder view. Very handy when using Lightpaper for a project.

I hope this is still in development, I got the latest version from the developer's website.
