Hide format tags? (H1, *text*, /text/, etc.)

Is there any way to hide the formatting tags? I would like to be able to see the text totally plain, i.e. without "H1" before heading 1, the stars before and after bold text, and so on.

If this is currently not an option, could it be an idea for future updates?

    +1 I'd also love to have an on/off "switch" or as someone suggested, only visible when typing and when the mouse was outside they were hidden.

    I was going to use Bear, I imported my 2,000 Evernote notes, but the Markdown is ugly. I thought it was an option to use Markdown. I spent a while looking for a way to toggle between the 'editing' mode, and the normal view mode. Found out that it is only every in Markdown. Sadly won't be using Bear now. :(
