I love Devonthink, and the markdown editor is very close to be perfect for my needs. I wish I could:
- change the text color while in Markdown WYSIWYG mode (strangely this does not work)
- adjust the line-height do make each line breath a bit more
Thank you for making such a nice product
In the „wysiwyg“ mode (I’d call it rendering), the text color is determined by css. You can provide your own to change that.
Glad you’re enjoying DEVONthink!
If you are referring to editing the source of Markdown, it’s just plain text therefore controlled by Preferences > Editing > Plain Text Font. But also since it’s just plain text, it doesn’t support multi-colored text. That would be a rich text attribute.
Yes, I’m referring to editing the source. Concerning changing font color and line height, it is more about personal preference, being able set up a writing environment that is comfortable for me. E.g. A bright white font against a dark black background causes some eyestrain. Making the font a bit more grey (like in iA Writer dark mode) makes it far more comfortable editing. I don’t use much time in preview mode, that’s why I am more concerned about the editing mode.
You can change the font color in the Editing preferences I mentioned, just not multiple colors.
Yes, it works as long as the editor is not using the Markdown Wysiwyg mode. I prefer using the Wysiwyg mode in the Markdown Editor. That’s why I think this could be a nice improvement in future releases
Ahh… Development would have to assess the feasibility of the request.
