Hi Paul - sorry, yes, you’re quite right (and in fact that left-hand navigation bar also allows you to view all kinds of stuff, such as the in-file outline, files either as list or with tags and previews, etc.), which does indeed amount to a kind of “library”. BUT - and for me it’s a big but - it doesn’t include a cross-file search function. So in my view, not really a library as such (although it is a superb file manager).

But if universal search isn’t an issue, then yes, this file management feature makes Typora even more attractive.

Has performance improved at all? I tried it years ago and while it was *very* attractive, I found it unusable because of severe input lag. It would take almost a full second from the time I hit a key until the character was displayed on screen. I’d test it myself, but my PC is under a heavy load at the moment and will be for another day.

It should run fine once I finish with the task at hand since I now have a six-core multi-threaded processor, but that kind of power shouldn’t be necessary just to run a text editor.

No longer an issue, honest.

There’s CommonMark

In practice, I haven’t found the variants to be a problem. I use two different variants for two different things: Jekyll for blog posts, MultiMarkdown for ‘most everything else. I export plain Markdown from Tines, and all the variants work with it.
