Basic but organized writing

I know nothing about "mark down" or any of these terms. I came across this program as I was searching for a mindmapping program that would allow me to create a mindmap and then seamlessly convert to a heirarchical outline with the inclusion of any and all text notes that would have been attached to the items in the mindmap.

I really like the way Marked seems to reflect any changes made to the map but I do not need nor want to work with any "languages". I simply want to be able to organize my thoughts using a mindmapping program and then easily go to an outline that I can use to build on for creative writing.

My question is: Can I use marked to simply track my changes and include the notes that I would have put into a mindmap for creating a story plot? The program that led me to Marked or markdown was iThoughtsX.

    The beauty of Markdown is that it's just plain text. Markdown just adds
    simple syntax for things like bold, italics, and links, but otherwise
    it's just text, and any text will just work.

    I think that Marked and iThoughts sound like an ideal solution for your
    needs, whether you choose to incorporate Markdown or not.

    Hi Brett,

    Can I assume that it is easy enough to either configure it to not add the syntax or that the added attributes are easily identified and thus ignored?

    Marked doesn’t add anything to your document, it only displays what you’ve entered in your map.
