Odd Behavior on Startup


Got some very odd behavior on startup of this app. I was hoping for a lightweight ReST viewer, but when I opened this app, it started walking the directory tree of my home directory (including all the various paths in ~/Library). I guess it was looking for markup files, but after a few minutes of this (during which the program wasn’t responsive) I quit the program. Restarting and reinstalling the program failed to get different behavior.

Powerful Knowledge Manage Software!

It’s Perfect to manage all kinds of Plain Text, such as org-mode files(my favorite), markdown files, etc.
There is something more to do with UI.

Useless light version


The only thing I wanted it to do was to view an existing markdown file, but it turns out that's too much to ask. You have to upgrade to the pro version for that. Now i'm just unhappy with them so won't even look into the pro version. Don't annoy me with fake freeware.
