    I use markdown format in a number of Apps for brainstorming, ideas etc. I then want to get the formatted data out into say OneNote where it can be collected and edited with different styles or whatever but cannot see how to do it.
    OneNote doesn't support markdown which is why it has to be converted first. Does anyone know of apps or workarounds? Exporting to docx from Ulysses sort of works but involves open in dialog, then I have to open word and then copy the data out back to ON.

    The main point is that I like to start in text due to its free form nature, but getting it from there into something with styles is proving difficult.

    Many thanks for any ideas.

    Copying the preview view in ByWord pastes fine into OneNote with formatting. Probably the same for all apps that show the rendered text.

    Doesn't work in Editorial or Textastic, keeps on indenting the header levels. Ulysses only works if opened in word and then pasted and then opened, very convoluted. However I have not tried byword, so may look at it, thanks.
