Incompatible with OS X El Capitan

Incompatible with OS X El Capitan. Will currenlty only work on OS Sierra correctly until an update is available.

Working well in macOS Mojave

This is a really nice, well though out app, that combines great features, with a beautiful design. It's working well in Mojave beta 11. I tried a couple of markdown editors, and found them to be pretty ugly in comparison. Notes are stores as files, in locations you can choose, including iCloud, wordpress, etc... it's easy to create a new file.

Doesn’t play well with Google Docs

I downloaded this to edit Google Docs since it specifically says it works with Google Drive. It does not. You can add the Google Drive folder and have it sync, but the app is unable to open .gdoc files. You can create word documents and save them to Google Drive, but you can’t edit any exisiting documents unless you export them as a different file type.
