@pimoore @pratik @rnv I'm on the iPad at the moment, so that menu doesn't open the same. On the Mac app, you go into the editor menu and there's a list of available markdowns. You can dupe one and make your own. It's similar to the process of duplicating an output format and modifying it to what your needs are. Let me know if that's not clear, and later when I'm on the laptop I'll do a walk-through with pictures. <img src="https://www.universalstoryengine.com/uploads/2021/d4f2ef64f9.png" />


@pimoore @pratik @rnv I've used Ulysses-to-blot by exporting to my blot folder directly. It works well. I've made my own markup for Ulysses to work around Ulysses' quirky/annoying attitude toward markup. And I also use a screenplay formatting markup called fountain in Ulysses. It's not that difficult to switch back and forth between Ulysses' fake markup and my real markup. My one knock against Ulysses is that I lose things in the folder structure. That's why I'm still using Scrivener for longform projects like novels. I like the way Scrivener visualizes things and yes @pinmore I also don't like the way the Scrivener iPad app isn't the real deal. It gets down to personal choice, or in my case non-choice, since I use all of them for different purposes.



@wearsmanyhats Yes, that one is in the to-read pile as well. These guys seem like super-smart visionaries but ... perhaps ... not visionary enough?


@odd It's Everyday Habit Tracker by Joan Boixados. Tried Streaks and "Done" -- but this is the most visual.



@bsag Seeing your setup gave me the idea to put the mousepad in the middle. Genius! I'm using the Ergo-Doc split Querty keyboard that I've remapped for writing.



@pimoore Just got an iPad Air to go with my mechanical Keychron keyboard (Bluetooth). Pretty awesome. If it's a writing day, I pretty much don't need the laptop at all.



Take care of each other.
