thank you for this extension, but can you please how we can use it

That looks awesome! Will try it and give comments.

Seems to work well for me on my Mac (once I upgraded to 3.6.8).

For those who are stuck… Make a note, click on the “…” in the lower right corner of the note window. Choose MarkDown.

Very neat!

BUT - on my iPad (also running v3.6.8) I don’t see a way to write MarkDown. That menu selection is not there on the iPad. So that is a problem. But I can view MarkDown that I wrote on my Mac in the notes on my iPad. I just can’t write or edit MarkDown on the iPad.

— Never mind about the above. Apparently the iPad wasn’t running MN3 3.6.8. I just updated and now it is and it works fine!

This is really a very nice addon! Thanks!

Hello，hani.

Plz check this button.

Regards.

Hi, how can I edit my cards with Markdown/Latex on iOS? I see you have a picture of someone using a Markdown table on the iPad in the post. Thanks so much for this well-needed addition. @Edward_Support-Team @Kevin_Support-Team

I am getting the same issues as in 【MN Official Add-on】May 8th, Beta1.0.2: CKEditor, a simple and easy card editor for tables and equations for this add-on, any assistance would be greatly appreciated.

Very cool tool! I would much more appreciate if we could use Markdown/Latex in the title of the mindmap!

I tried this in the latest build, 3.6.11.

Boy, what a total disappointment. It’s buggy, slow, and the design is confusing.

Issues:

(1) The markdown only seems to apply to some new genre of comment below the note card text. It is still not possible to even add italics to the main notecard text.

(2) As I type in the markdown comment, the editor adds spurious CRs above my text. I have to cut these out.

(3) The new note comment is tiny, almost unreadable.

(4) There is a huge amount of white space above and below the new markdown comment.

(4) Very slow and sluggish.

(5) Not localized into English. No documentation.

(6) Terrible UI/UX. There now seem to be three slightly-different modes of editing notecards, two slightly-different genres of comments, and two different note editors, one for markdown, and one for regular comments.

I like the plugin and have enjoyed using it, but I’ve had an issue rendering a LaTeX equation:

$$^{q}D = \left( \sum_{i=1}^{R} p_{i}^{q} \right) ^{1 / (1 - q)}$$

renders as

rather than

which is the output from LaTeXiT. Can you help me with finding out why the renderer doesn’t show the equation correctly?

Same Problem here perhaps the text has been copied from an htlm source: it conteins html tags like
and so on that the plugin can’t interpret and “brakes” the latex formula
I’ve typed in similar formula, the plugin works perfectly
