Is there any way to hide the markdown codes? The H1, H3's are that annoying but when I bold a word I wish it didn't show the asterisks around the word.

    I'd like this also - marks are distracting for reading...

    I think, this option is very necessary for user experience. writing is important. but To read content is most important thing to using this app. It's make me hard to read.

    I'd like this option as well. Trying out simpler alternatives to Evernote - I like the potential of Bear a lot - but most of time, I want the formatting settings to not be this front and center.
