Fully visual editor mode (WYSIWYG / WYSWYG)

I would imagine that there would be no Markdown visible even on the active line. I also think that if you selected a character or characters, there would be a pressed and unpressed state for the various formatting buttons that would make it clear what formatting is currently applied to the selection, giving you the option to easily zero it all out and start anew. Most users might continue to use the custom hotkeys they have set for the formatting operations but wouldn’t have to contend with the symbols in the occasional cases where they wanted to use this sub-mode.

Not sure this is exactly how @krzykot sees it but I am just guessing. Thanks.
