I have been searching for this subject, so please excuse me if this has been asked before.
Will Panda continue to be supported as a standalone editor once it has been rolled into Bear? I’m thinking especially on iOS. I appreciate having access to a standalone text editor, and do have other options, but enjoy using Panda and so wondered what the roadmap was for it once Bear 2.0 is out.
I would like to offer my encouragement to Panda’s developers to continue the development of Panda as a standalone, file-based Markdown editor. It is easily the most beautiful and elegant WYSIWYG Markdown editor on the Mac and on iOS/iPadOS. Thank you for creating such a beautiful piece of software!
Instead of having a separate “Panda” app to install, what about this? If you have Bear installed, if double-clicking on any .md file in finder would just open that file in Bear in a standalone window, and any changes would be saved back to the original .md file.
That would allow you to view/edit any .md file anywhere on your Mac.
As an added bonus, the standalone window could have an “Import” button to add the contents of the .md file as a new note in your Bear library.
