Textdown Works from Your Browser and Saves Time

Textdown Works from Your Browser Textdown is a text editor that my VA has been experimenting with over the past week.  She says that it saves time, so I thought I’d share it with you.

Let me preface this my saying that I am NOT the most tech-savvy person on the planet by a long shot.  But this tool sounded helpful to me, especially if you like working from within your browser (as opposed to shifting back and forth between the browser and material on your desktop.

What Textdown does is allow you to open a tab in your browser and create documents there.  Markdown is the language that can be used in Textdown, although Plain Text will work as well.

If you want to add a bit more formatting than Plain Text allows (which is none) then Textdown offers some welcome flexibility.  You can enlarge text, make passages bold, underline titles, and add quite a few other formatting tweaks.  And another nice feature of Textdown and the Markdown language that it uses is that whether you view the resulting document in HTML or in Plain Text, it will be readable.  Here is an excellent overview of both Markdown and Textdown by Saikat Basu

To get an idea of how Textdown might work for you, here’s a sample of a formatted Textdown document … and below it, the unformatted version.

There are lots of shortcuts available in Textdown, and you can access them easily by clicking Ctrl +D (or Cmd D on a Mac).  You can also add options yourself, as you need/want to.  And Textdown will work from your browser whether you are on or off-line.

I hope this tech tool is interesting and helpful to you as you work to streamline your on-line work and enhance your productivity.  Even a non-techie like me can see the possibilities here!
