You type "*bold*", and then the text becomes bold, but you still see the asterisks. It's the best of both worlds, because you can actually see what you're doing.
That's not best, that's shit. Why should I see nigger asterisks? They should be invisible.
It's like if image editing software would show me color values of each pixels instead of displaying them. And making me edit by changing those number, instead of picking color and drawing.
Internal document format should be invisible for user, user should format text visually, not using nigger codes and symbols.
Emacs does come with mouse support. It even has mouse support if you run it inside a terminal, although I wouldn't recommend doing that.
Then why nobody will some screenshot of Emacs orgymode with GUI and tabs? Because it's a scam and doesn't exist
Why is Markdown unacceptable?
Because it's piece of dumb shit. Internal format encoding and special symbols should be hidden from user, he should format text using toolbars and shortcuts, not stupid symbols and see this nigger symbols all the time
That's like if I learnt BMP file format specification and started "drawing" images with hexeditor by changing values, instead of opening graphical editor and drawing images with mouse.
You are limiting yourself to a shitty solution with WYSIWYG anything. Unless your technical illiterate uncle is going to use that, there is no excuse not to invest 20 min MAX of your time to learn markdown.
WYSIWYG is superior to marknigger. In edit mode, you see document exactly how it will look in view mode, or print mode. But in marknigger you see stupid formatting symbols. You need to switch between edit and view mode.
You can use text editor to write markdown file, then with Hugo it generates HTML files with your specific theme and you view it in web browser. This is the most flexible solution. And it is really easy unless you are incompetent. Watch my video.
You are fucking crazy if you think I will use some other software every time I want to view document. And I'm not going to use web browser for it.
I want to view document all the time, when editing. I have many documents where I need to be in both edit and view mode at same time. Some of my documents need to be changed 10 times a day. That's why WYSIWYG is superior to all shitty open source marknigger shit.
Proprietary software again proven that it's superior in design compared to open source garbage. It's not surprising, considering that open source garbage is never designed, it's just one big poop pile where all contributors and developers poop whenever they want.
doesn't have rich text. also GUI looks like shit
WYSIWYG presumes it has a display engine built in. Display engine = browser builtin.
Also, web browser are made to browse websites. rtf engines are made to view and edit rtf documents.
