Downer is a clean and easy to use markdown editor. With its simple tabbed interface with live preview it’s never been easier to create and edit markdown documents.

The preview pane helps you to get an instant overview of how the document will look once finished.

- Export as HTML?
No worries! Just hit the "save as..." menu option and pick .html as file extension. Easy peasy.

- Export as PDF?
No worries! Just hit "Print" and pick pdf and it's done!

- Forgot to save before you closed?
No worries! Just close it! Everything gets saved so that you don't need to worry about saving or accidentally lose important information.


Release Notes:

- "Rich text" editor. Get a live preview of bold, italic and strikethrough, headers will be made bold to make them easier to distinguish and hyperlinks will be clickable.
- Swapped markdown lib to better support fenced code blocks and other markdown additions.

Alas... - Nice format, just what I would like for Markdown editing. Providing a dropdown to select different rendering styles is nice. However, it took me only about 60 seconds to find 2 major bugs. First, and most important, links are not honored in the MD window. I want to test my links. Second, the format "### Title [anchorname]" is not honored. Perhaps this is just a single bug. In any case, the app is unusable for me until this is fixed.

Nice to use - This app works for putting markdown into something. It has tabs, which is rad, and a more or less live preview. If there was a base set of things to do, it would be those three tasks. It is also pretty. However, it is very flat and in addition to doing one thing well, it really just only does that. Can't open other document formats with the exception of txt, which makes sense because it is a text editor. But after a few weeks using this program I am regretting using this and relying on the Google Chrome Stackedit app instead. Tabbed doesn't matter if you can't sync this up.

This application is good - This app does what it says and is really good at it. Though I am having some issues with the application appearing on all my desktops, even when I set it to only appear on one. Definitely a bug. Kinda annoying but I can live with it, but a fix would definitely be nice. If the developer fixes it then this app would probably be the best markdown editor since it's super clean and simple.

Exactly What I Needed - This application does exactly what I need: Provides a preview of my markdown in realtime as I edit without any extra scripts, applications, or windows. Great work!
