Yet another Markdown editor.
I think there is always something missing from all the current Markdown editors so I decided to design my own, and maybe develop it if I get the chance.
Special thanks to Dustin Curtis for his Markdown badge and Sven Read for his custom desktop app mockup!
Hope you like it :)

I love it! :)
Pixel-tastiness aside, I think the A sizes are not distinguishable enough...
I would have used Nicola's icon, that I feel it's better, but I understand that without Gruber's blessing it's hard to tell: http://dribbble.com/shots/424152-Markdown :)
I wouldn't however place the icon above the user text. Maybe in a corner? Just near the window controls? On the right side? I don't know. It might be worth experimenting.
I love the text thumbnail on the left (as much as I love it in Sublime Text 2) and I'd try to have it on the right (as Sublime Text 2 does).
Watch out however for the box, since the blue line might cut the underlying text: I'd maybe try to convert it to a bold line on the left side of the text thumbnail so it marks the visible area but it doesn't "overlap" with the text.
> there is always something missing
Amen to that :)
This is soooo baddass!
@Fabio Basile Oh, thanks for the credit. Looks awesome. Text-size icons seem a bit difficult to differentiate. Otherwise, clean & simple. Keep us updated on how things work out.
Really nice work Buddy!
Fabulous work going on there! But as Davide also pointed out about the icon, it would look better in a corner or maybe above the document preview area.
Really like this, getting me on the inspired train.
If you decide to go through with it, let me know! I'd like to ask ya a few questions :)
Ooh, the preview is nice. I wish more code editors had that feature!
Amazing response, thank you all kind people! :)
@Davide 'Folletto' Casali thanks a lot for the feedback. I do like Nicola's icon but for this case I didn't find it very explicit. I wanted a more recognisable and compact mark.
The position of the markdown stamp in my mockup sits just above the text because I was planning of cutting the text at that particular point. Looking back though it doesn't sounds like a good idea as I will be losing a lot of white space.
I do agree about the thumbnail, it's more natural on the right of the windows (like Sublime Text 2). The blue box would be marking the 'current view', but it's unnatural and might cover some text. So probably I will just use two shades of grey for highlighting the current visible text. :)
@Jared Erondu that's the plan, still learning Cocoa / Obj-C so it might take a bit longer than usual. Although feel free to ask me anything, happy to help :)
Got it. Awesome job man. :)
so clean lookin', awesome work mate!
