Simple Writing

This app is based on a "simple" goal. Write beautifully. Is there a way to turn off all the extra features and just see text on a screen without the fancy # bubbles, annotations and colors. I love the app but don't know if I can finally switch because as a casual note taker and writer I don't need all that extra stuff. I am also a "Pro" subscriber but am still on the fence if I can't turn off all those tools I personally don't need. Thanks!

    Hi Kyle,

    I think is against markdown philosophy to hide the markers, but we're studying solutions to add not-marked view.

    I also would like this feature. A markdown-free version of notes is all I want from Bear!
