It's so fresh and so clean. I seems 'basic' but when you account for the

spacing and structural considersations made, time has clearly been spent on Left.

The theme are a nice touch as is this being open source! The people behind Left are dudes!

Pros:

Simple, elegant, sexy even.

Cons:

Constrast on some themes is not accessible - no spell check

I used my code editor before to take note, but Left is the better option, especially if you want to use markdown. Left displays the headings on the left, to stay organized and fast access different subheadings.

Pros:

Elegant, simple text editor with markdown support

Cons:

None

Beautiful simple text editor, perfect for quick scribbling (eg. blog post ideas and the like)

Pros:

Simple, beautiful minimalist Markdown text editor; themes; "sticky" outline sidebar

Cons:

Default OSX shortcuts (full screen, close tab/file) don't work

cmd+w should close a file similarly to other text applications like Sublime. And fullscreen is cmd+enter, similarly to other applications. What would be a better shortcut for fullscreen?

I decided to start using this text editor instead of the default one, as it's really simple and free of distractions, setup and preferences menus, and random options.

It feels perfect for fast note taking while working on any project or looking for info around the web

Pros:

Simple and to the point. Perfect look if you like minimalistic design

Cons:

Can't think of any

I love it so much, it's very beautiful. I used to use Atom to write Markdown.but now I move to it.

But I have met some problems.I click `ctrl + K` ,but it doesn't work. I don't know why this...

Anyway,Thank you for your work!

Pros:

elegant,simple

Cons:

null

You have to highlight some words for ctrl+k to work! :)

I just started to use it but I'm in love with Left right now. It's pretty simple to use and focus on content. Additionally I liked the font type decision. Give Left a try.!

Pros:

Pretty simple to focus on content, Elegant Minimalist Design

Cons:

None

Favorite color is matte black so already a huge +. Second, the progress bar at the bottom is a game changer. Thank you for this amazing work fam

Pros:
