  1. Agreed - and thanks. To be clear, I don't want to say that we're never going to add something called "markdown support" that meets the expectations - just not in this version. What we've been considering is something similar to what @JMichael and @gelbander suggested - an easy way to import and export markdown to and from Evernote, but not changing the fact that at the end of the day, we're a rich text WYSIWYG editor. Since we have some folks who have some enthusiasm around this, I'll take the opportunity to ask. Is this something that would meet your needs? Yes, I've got to agree with the sentiment of the rest of those commenting on this feature. > Since we have some folks who have some enthusiasm around this, I'll take the opportunity to ask. Is this something that would meet your needs? No, it doesn't. This isn't what everyone thinks when they hear "markdown". I joined the forum specifically to sign up for the beta when I read the associated blog article and its description "Basic markdown will be a reality". Finally, the biggest feature I've been waiting for Evernote to add! Unfortunately this isn't Basic Markdown. That description to me, and probably everyone familiar with Markdown and all the flavours, is that you're describing Markdown that doesn't have any of the many extensions, e.g. Multi-Markdown, Git-flavoured, CommonMark, etc. So just plain vanilla Markdown. Actually, the change that you've made makes the situation worse for markdown users. Now, when I type Markdown into a note the editor will change the contents and won't let me change it back. I want to capture Markdown syntax as I type, and I want it to stay there. Previously it was disappointing that I couldn't see a preview of my markdown notes. Now I can't take markdown notes because this *improvement* will remove the markings on the fly. Eek. Anyway, I strongly advise you don't label this feature with "Markdown" in any way. It's likely to be more damaging than beneficial when Markdown users are super disappointed.
