I really enjoy using Bear as a markdown editor.

As a software engineer, I would like to be able to use Bear to edit my markdown documents files locally on my file system so that I can use Bear as my default markdown editor for code (currently I am using VS Code as my default markdown editor).

I have subscribed to Bear Pro, so I don't mind if this is a Pro only feature.

    I think is more likely we'll write another app for external file editing, because is hard to keep Bear's "note's app" structure and add document based editor functionalities.

    +1. Bear's Markdown editor is the best out there. I'd love to use it to edit local Markdown files.
