One Big Change and a Couple of Smaller Ones
- Switched to using a standard Windows installer (.msi). This has some long term benefits and plays better in corporate environments. The downside is that you’ll have to manually uninstall the 1.0 version which used a different installer technology. Sorry for the inconvenience. The good news (sort of) is not many of you downloaded 1.0.
- Added an Insert File command (
Ctrl+Shift+O). I was toying with adding template documents but concluded inserting a file was more flexible.
- Upgraded to MahApps.Metro 1.0. This is the UI library that gives Markdown Edit its modern look.
I’m still waiting on my Chocolatey submission. I expect it to go live in the next couple of days.
- Convert HTML to Markdown - This will allow insert/drag-drop an HTML file into the editor.
- Recent files shortcuts - Add shortcuts (1..0,a..j) to the “Recent Files” dialog.
- Review documents - A way to quickly review a directory of markdown files.
- Multiple files - It won’t use tabs. Something more keyboard centric.
- Format tables - If/when CommonMark adopts table markdown, I’ll add a helper to quickly define tables.
I would really like to add a grammar checker to the editor. Grammarly has an API, but only for, “High Volume Customers.” I haven’t seen anything else in terms of a .NET library or on-line service with API. Ping me if you know of something.
Oh, and don’t forget to send me some themes.
