Why repurpose edit key shortcuts

I’ve switched to another markdown editor, MacDown, as this one, Markdown, overrides normal text editing keyboard shortcuts without the option to revert back or reassign keys. For example, Cmd+Shift+Left/Right Arow is supposed to highlight a line of text to the left/right of the cursor. Instead, the window resizes and moves to the left/right of the screen. Try it out and you’ll see this is very annoying and unproductive. Not to mention but, this feature is not needed in an editor, especially with all the free software out there for window management/resizing. Apple should incorporate window resize/snapping in its future OS release so developers can focus on their application’s roles.

Doesn’t apple make sure that applications on the Mac App Store do not contradict with Apple’s Human Interface Guidelines?

Too many crashes

This app crashes so often that it is next to useless. I have ditched it in favor of another Markdown-compatible app that is more stable.

Multiple app crashes (v5.0).

I’ve experienced multiple crashes on MacOS High Siera (the app version 5.0).
It’s a good looking app but NOT stable.
At the same time it’s not the most powerful makdown app.
For 9$ it’s definetely not what you’d expect.
