Plaintext Preview Step

#1

It would be handy to have a new preview step, much like HTML preview, that takes plaintext. It would mimic the current appearance settings like theme, syntax highlighting, font, size, etc. I have some actions that modify text and this would be useful to verify the results before changing the draft.

#2

If it is just to preview actions I have a couple of suggestions,

  1. Duplicate the original draft and run the action on that.
  2. Force a save of the draft and make use of the version history to restore after a bad action run?
#3

Try this Plain Text Preview example.

It is an HTML Preview, but does not run the draft through Markdown and wraps it in a preformatted and code tags.
