Writing an article using iA Writer and Markdown Tables

Published by Matthew on

In this post I'm going to start writing an article using iA Writer and Markdown Tables.

In non-fiction a table can be an important way of summarising information. Here is the start of my article in iA Writer:

Next I want to add a table of early home computers. Wikipedia is a great place for research. I'm going to start by copying to the clipboard part of a table I would like to have in my document:

I can now start Markdown Tables, which I have in Split View with iA Writer, and import the table from the clipboard.

Once imported I'm going to remove some rows and columns I don't need. I'll also need to tell Markdown Tables that the first row is a header.

Once I've done that I can drag from the export button straight into iA Writer - and a Markdown version of my table appears.

To check how it looks when I'm ready to export my finished article I can put iA Writer into preview mode.

Fantastic! Markdown Tables has saved me a lot of time and frustration in making my document look great.

Download Markdown Tables and save time on your next piece of writing. Markdown Tables is priced at $1.99 and is available on the App Store.
