Can we get a mobile keyboard like this??? Markdown is onerous on a soft keyboard, with all of the special characters. For those of us who know markdown, it’s preferable to make it easier to type with fewer and smaller gestures.
This sort of keyboard provides some amazing affordances!
To get a better mobile toolbar for Obsidian, try the Commander plugin, especially with the column layout enabled. It’s better than the toolbar on any mobile markdown editor I’ve ever used, including iA Writer.
There are clear functional differences between this toolbar (it’s not part of the keyboard) and the keyboard that I linked. For reference sake, this keyboard is part of the WebSSH iOS app, though I have seen similar like it.
Respectfully, your example does not compare. The example you gave has:
provides less control to the user by way of abstractions
is less capable as each button has only one behavior
Thanks, that’s helpful to know. If you file another request and have the time, I’d be interested to hear a more detailed breakdown of what makes it overwhelming (or if it’s as simple as “Uhh, that’s a lot of words” or “The formatting makes my eyes hurt”, that’s useful info, too).
