Hello everyone I’m trying to use Atom as a text editor. I just want to be able to customise a little and write (as if it were Ulysses or iA writer — which I can’t afford — but better because it has things like the command palette :D).
But Atom does some things that I don’t understand how to change. Lines don’t turn into paragraphs but keep extending to the right. The editor doesn’t respond to markdown syntax by changing colour or anything. Font packages don’t actually change the editor font, nor do the settings.
What am I doing wrong? Are there any tutorials around for people who want to use Atom as a text editor only, and don’t know anything at all about code (yet)? Please help me to make Atom behave itself if you’re just using it to write papers, notes, and prose!
I’ve attached a picture (I’m only allowed one!) but I guess this is too simple a problem for pictures anyway…
Thanks very much
