Hello Joplin community!

I am considering several note-editing apps and found about Joplin when looking for an Evernote alternative.

I tried it and got quite puzzled about the editing mode, which enables edits in Markdown only and does not seem to allow direct modification in a WYSIWYG way (like on Evernote, Notion, Apple Notes…).

Am I mistaken? Or did I miss anything?

I find it nice to be able to use Makrdown, but I am not very geeky and thus I quite enjoy the simplicity of WYSIWYG editors and would love to use Joplin instead of Evernote for my notes. Any workaround or alternatives will be more than welcome!

Thanks a lot for your help!
Kind regards,


There’s no built-in WYSIWYG editor at the moment. As an alternative you can setup an external wysiwyg editor such as Typora and use this.


Definitively typora is la mejor opcion! :slight_smile:


Okay, thank you for your answers!
