Great program for it's small size. Already being preferred as it only requires ~3MB of storage space, as it should be. Many others being Flatpack alternatives, eating away nearly a GB of diskspace for dependencies while offering similar functionality.

Really simple and easy to use! The Ctrl+I/B/U combinations work as expected. Just press Ctrl + L to enable side-by-side preview, then Edit-> tick Use WebKit renderer and you'll never meet any issues with it. Many thanks to the devs for sharing.

Неудобно постоянно переключатся между режимом просмотра и редактирования. При этом режим просмотра мог бы начинаться с того места, где курсор редактирования... Однако нет :( И не понимает списки, которые идут в плотную к абзацу (такое понимает Github)

NIX GEHT - NO GO!!! Retext is not able to parse markdown because of missing module; Online Help leads to Error 404

Really good, but you have to `# apt-get install python3-docutils python3-markdown` to get it working properly.
