Hello!

I hardly ever look at my notes in the note preview view. I enjoy seeing the blue italics and blue bold text of the raw text files in the note edit pane. I use QOwnNotes more as a fancy text editor than a Markdown creator.

Sometimes I use the five-spaces formatting for blockquotes just to make them turn green. But I'd like an option to have the > blockquote symbol turn the entire blockquote red (or whatever formatting is selected). That way it will pop out more. I frequently quote books and want the quotes to be easily differentiated from what I write, but I'd like to use the proper formatting for that.

Can this be easily implemented?

I guess you are talking about the note editor, and not the preview, right?

And you are talking about colorizing it like with a code-block?

Yeah like a codeblock. That was what I was thinking. So that my quotes and my own writing are strongly contrasted at a glance.

Took quite a while to allow options in the highlighter but now it's done...

18.01.1

  • there now is a new checkbox in the Editor settings to fully highlight blockquotes
    instead of just the >

I thought I was safe because my i7 is ten years old, before the Management Engine thing... wah wah! Guess I'm eyeballing AMD for the next upgrade. :)
