Customer Reviews

My favorite, but...

I’m not a professional writer, but I do write some documentation and other things for various projects. I love the live preview that you get while working on a document. It’s a big feature missing from a lot of the other, big name markdown editors. But I really wish it supported MultiMarkdown a bit better: the table support is very specific vs. the more freeform method.
