I currently use a combination of Drafts and Ulysses for writing on my Mac. I’m interested in going all in on Drafts, but there are a couple of Ulysses features that I’d love to see improved in Drafts in order to make that happen:
Formatting with keyboard shortcuts. In Ulysses, when you type command+B, it seems to automatically wrap the text you’re about to write with two asterisks on either side of the test. Then, if you hit Return, the cursor jumps to after the second set of asterisks. This makes typing in Markdown quicker and easier.
Export to Microsoft Word. Ulysees is the only markdown editor that exports really well to Word. The headings, bullet-pointed lists in particular work much better than Bear (for example). I know there’s a action on the iOS version of Drafts to convert to Word that uses Shortcuts. It’s pretty good but doesn’t handle indented bullet lists or default to Calibri font.
Are either of these items on your roadmap?
Thanks for a great product.
