Heh, I was quite inspired by the Typora article - enough to unearth Typora from my list of apps and reinstall it.

It’s a great app. The search engine is fantastic - blasts through multiple files in multiple folders at very high speed, highlighting hits like a pro.

And I’ve discovered themes - notably a theme that turns Typora into a Bear (Writer) clone. Because you can tweak the CSS, you can turn it into even more of a Bear clone! Although I love Bear, it’s being officially retired for the time being (until Typora finally sorts out a pricing plan of some kind, at which point Bear may be reinstated!).

What we need now is Typora for iOS/iPadOS. On the other hand, you can easily share files between Typora on macOS and e.g. iaWriter or 1Writer on iPadOS.

The tip about using a plus sign (+) for tags is a good one; Typora does have the rather irritating habit of interpreting hashtags as headings, even when there isn’t a space immediately after the hashtag. Typora also handles images quite well, unlike many other markdown apps.
