Yes, I love both Ulysses and iA Writing regarding their typographic decisions. I am really annoyed by "changing mode." It gives me a pause and I find it distracting. (The very same reason I don't like writing descriptions in Trello) I read through the comments, and understand Erica doesn't like the idea of
**bold text** because it looks like
<div>text</div>, but like the Latex formatting and all these advanced features Dynalist offer, you need to focus on the makers, what makers really want. (writers, programmers, designers, all who make things professionally)
I am okay with WYSIWYG style, but I just think switching mode makes users unproductive.
