Right now in Discourse you have your “editor” window where you type, and a separate preview window that shows how what you type will be displayed. Is it possible to merge those two, so the user doesn’t need to look at two different windows as they type?
When you’re composing a message in gmail, for example, if you highlight text and hit bold, the text you just highlighted becomes bold in your message window. In Discourse, the text will not become bold–rather, it will show the markdown asterisks around the text, and the text will be bold only in the separate preview window.
Is there a way to make it more like gmail for my users?
