Inspire Editor: Distraction-free Writing With Its Little Helpers

Editor is where you spell your magic dust.

In here, you can write without any distractions from the outside world: it’s simple, clean, and free from any bells and whistles that could add to the distraction.

We believe that Markdown is ideal for distraction-free writing.

Now I hear what you’re saying: Why Markdown? What is Markdown anyway? And even if I agree that Markdown is the way to distraction-free writing, how do I do that in Inspire? Rest assured, we have you all covered:

But getting the right tool, i.e. go with markdown writing, is just step one. Then comes step two, creating the perfect writing environment for you to write in. And to do that, Inspire provides you with the following features: They stay out of your way most of the time, and will only come out when you need them.

Of course, these are just some of the features and functions you see and use in Inspire.  With us constantly updating Inspire, the list will sure grow in the future.

Inspire Dark Mode: a more comfortable writing environment for your eyes

If you prefer writing in the dark, or enjoy the less eye-soaring darker background to write in, or you just simply want to protect your eyes, then Dark Mode in Inspire is a good fit for your need.

By clicking ViewDark Mode, or using the shortcut keys Ctrl + T, your Inspire will be in the Dark Mode:

Inspire Dark Mode is a great tool to protect your eyes if you’re writing late at night, or working in a low-light environment. It reduces the eye strain, allowing you to be more productive, especially if your job requires you to stare at the screen over 10 hours a day, which could be quite normal for writers.

By switching your writing environment to dark mode, say goodbye to eye strain, eyesore and constant squinting in front of the screen.

How do you like it? Feel free to let us know what you think. We’re all ears. 🙂

Inspire Typewriter Mode

Just as the name suggests, Typewriter Mode mimics the behavior of a mechanical typewriter. It may be a bit old-fashion for some writers, but it’s definitely a great way to stay focus on your content, which is one of Inspire’s goals.

When typing on Inspire Typewriter Mode, you will always see your current line staying in the middle of the page, while the text you just typed will be pushed upwards, adding one more touch to the distraction-free writing environment that we’re working hard to build. Of course, you can scroll to wherever you want the text to be and keep typing.

To enable Typewriter Mode, click View, then Typewriter Mode. You’ll then see your current line stays where it is, ideally in the middle of the page, but it can also be wherever you want it to be.
