I'm interested in how you use markdown, if you don't mind.
RightNote has had a 3.0 for awhile.I use it. It's ok, gets the job done. I thought I would love that feature as a way to keep notes synced or some idea like that. but in the end, I just don't use it much. I do it once or twice a year when I need to search through evernote for a lost clip or something. I think my problem is that it becomes this thought, "Do I put this note in rightnote? or evernote?" or I'm on my phone and don't have rightnote, so i stick it in evernote to later sync with rightnote, sheesh. So i just don't care after a while.
I think one big thing is Evernote integration.
*** Anybody using it? Your thoughts? ***
My point is, I don't consider the evernote functionality a big deal. It wouldn't even factor in my decision to use Rightnote or not.
I tried it. It's a bit... clunky, but gets the job done. The clunkiness is a function of the limiters on the Evernote interface, rather than on Rightnote.
In all honesty, however, since I can write in Markdown in Evernote now, I've dropped using Rightnote for all intents and purposes.
How I use Markdown in Evernote? Or in general?
In general, as much as possible, I format all of my writing in Markdown; the plain text allows me to use several editors, and still be able to output to a common format at the end, whether that be word, pdf, or whatever. That's one of the reasons I created my MarkdownBuddy application for NANY 2015- to be able to use plain text editors that don't really support markdown or markdown preview, but still see it's final state.
With Evernote, I use postach.io to host sites that I update semi regularly- it points to an Evernote notebook. To write to that notebook, I use Marxico
, which allows me to write directly to Evernote. Postach.io syncs and interprets the text to create the sites. Other editors I use are Writemonkey, Scrivener, Stackedit, Draft, Texts, and Texthaven... each for different uses cases and purposes. But it being in plain text allows them all to operate more or less seamlessly. MarkdownBuddy helps with that... as some of the more esoteric parsings are caught with that preview.
Not sure if that really makes sense, now that I've written it out... but it works
