Love this app!

Fantastic Markdown text editor. Has found its place in my workflow as a good balance between BBEdit and iA Writer for my txt files.

Nice little markdown editor

Thank you for creating this—it's very generous to open the source code and offer it for free.

So far I've only noticed a few things I'd like to see changed. If you turn off line numbering, the text jumps all the way to the left edge of the window so there's no margin at all. I'd rather have it simply remove the numbers while maintaining the left margin. It would also be wonderful to gray out the markdown characters so they're still visible but don't turn bold or italic and look like part of the word itself. Support for ==highlighting== would be great, too.
