Add option to transparently show the markup syntax but still retain the formatting in the editor
I work with markdown, and I think it is super annoying that I have to do hotkeys to apply formatting. I want to type markdown, and have it format on the fly, while still showing the syntax. This is useful when I want to write comments or blog posts. I don't necessarily want a local copy of the file, I want to use Write! as a writing tool.
I know this might go against your app philosophy (simplicity, markup independence, etc. which _really_ sets your app apart), so I'll accept some compromises.
At least, you should enable a way to copy the text to the clipboard in the desired markup format.
(Awesome app, btw!)
Please give us the possibility to easily change the markup formatting by typing not using a menu...
This is how iA Writer does it.
