Notable overview

Notable is a very powerful Markdown editor, it's the same one VS Code uses in fact, so features like multi-cursors, a minimap and best-in-class syntax highlighting are built-in.

Notable provides a very powerful Markdown editor, it's the same one VS Code uses in fact, so features like multi-cursors, a minimap and best-in-class syntax highlighting are built-in.

No Vendor Lock-In

Notes and attachments are simply stored on your disk, this is extremely portable and powerful: you could edit your notes via a third-party editor on mobile, have them synchronized via Dropbox, use Git, run a regex-based search and replace etc.

Dark Theme

A dark theme is also available. In the future support for custom themes will be added as well.

Zen Mode

Zen mode provides a minimalistic editing and reading experience, hiding everything that's not necessary.

Notable is also keyboard friendly, has a quick open window, and we'll soon add a command palette too, so you won't have to click any buttons if you don't want to.

Multi-Note Editor

A multi-note editor is available for performing an action, like favoriting, pinning, deleting, tagging etc., on multiple notes at once.

Split Editor

A split-editor is available for quickly checking out how your note will be rendered while you're editing it.

What’s new in version 1.8.4

Updated on Oct 05 2020

Version 1.8.4:
  • Bundling OS-specific dependencies only when needed
  • This removes a file from Windows bundles that tripped Windows Defender into finding a false positive
  • Importing: ensuring arbitrarily large notes collections containing arbitrarily many files with the same name are still imported correctly, assuming the underlying importing library can parse the collection in the first place
Bug Fixes
  • Editor: disabled automatic clipboard copying when selecting in favor of being able to create multiple cursors while dragging with the middle click (Linux)
  • Ensuring both creation date and modification date are updated when duplicating a note
  • Ensuring paste actions when dragging with the middle click are only prevented inside the editor (Linux)
  • Fixed misalignment in loose task lists
  • Fixed some regexes that were wrongly expecting to match at least one character in certain places
