FYI I was browsing the Mac App Store and came upon a $3.99 Markdown app I wasn’t familiar with that does outline left-pane reordering - OutlineText:



He apparently reused the code for a Windows app with a different name:


Only has two (bad) reviews on the Mac App Store, but those reviews were posted before the last update (last summer). Caveat emptor, then.

Well, THAT’S interesting. Let’s hope that this particular feature (ability to reorder left pane sections) becomes the next competition for markdown editors.

I loaded up VOoM… wow. This can be seriously handy for my non-fiction writing.

Some useful lines to add to your .vimrc if you’re going to try VOoM:

” override syntax selection for Markdown extensions
autocmd BufNewFile,BufRead *.md set syntax=markdown
autocmd BufNewFile,BufRead *.mmd set syntax=markdown

” VOoM settings
let g:voom_ft_modes = {‘markdown’: ‘pandoc’}

The latter one makes pandoc the default syntax if you have a Markdown file open, so you can just type :Voom and get on with things.
