Mark Text

Simple and Elegant Markdown Editor

Focused on speed and usability.

Mark Text is a popular free and open-source document editor designed exclusively for writing in Markdown. Like Typora, Mark Text has a polished interface and a live editor that hides the Markdown formatting after you type it. The PDF and HTML export options are handy, as is the feature that allows you to copy text out of the editor as Markdown, HTML, or plaintext.

There are some minor annoyances. In several instances (noted below in the table), the appearance of the text in the application didn’t match the rendered output of the exported HTML and PDF. And as with Notion, it can be difficult to edit Markdown-formatted text after the live editor has converted it.
