The main idea of Writage is to provide the opportunity to write in Markdown to those who like to use Microsoft Word. There are lots of Markdown editors such as iA Writer, Texts, WriteMonkey or Byword and online Markdown writing services, like StackEdit, Dillinger or Markable for people who like to have a minimalistic, distraction-free interface. However there is nothing available for those who prefer to use the rich interface and features of Microsoft Word.
So Writage is designed for everyone who would like to start writing well-structured documents and doesn’t have time for or doesn’t want to dive into the details of Markdown syntax, or prefers to use Word as a text editor.
Writage enables Microsoft Word to create and edit Markdown files (with .md extension), as well as save your .docx files as Markdown files. It is also capable of copying selected rich-text as Markdown, and pasting Markdown as rich text.
Font styles, such as bold or italic
Lists (numbered and bulleted)
Easy to start writing in a new format, zero knowledge of Markdown required and you don’t have to know what document styles are supported in Markdown.
Utilise CommonMark, widely used and very well documented Markdown syntax, which was adopted by: Discourse, GitHub, GitLab, Reddit, Stack Overflow and many more.
Writage expands a standard Markdown syntax, providing support for tables (using GitHub Flavored Markdown syntax) and footnotes, which are common in scientific documents.
Use the interface of Microsoft Word to work with Markdown documents and keep collaboration with your team simple, even if some of you prefer to use different instruments for writing.
There is no need to remember Markdown syntax for anything: for hyperlinks or footnotes, or how to format a table. Just write well-structured text as you usually do in Microsoft Word and store it as Markdown.
If you need to paste some text from Markdown syntax into a Microsoft Word document, it can be easily done by Writage. The text will be displayed as it was predefined in source syntax.
In case you need to copy selected text from Microsoft Word into a Markdown document. The text will be inserted in CommonMark syntax.
If you need to convert your Markdown files to PDF format, use Writage to open them in Microsoft Word and simply export them as PDF-files.
Writage turns Word into your Markdown WYSIWYG editor, so you will be able to open a Markdown file and edit it, like you normally edit any document in Microsoft Word. It will also be possible to save your Word document as a Markdown file without any other converters.

On receiving a Markdown document from another person or downloading from the web, you don’t have to install any additional software to be able to render and read it as a normal document (without the distraction of formatting tags).
