Using notes is handy as you can have it in multiple devices and makes transition almost effortless. I'm willing to move some of these to Markdown so I can share the content and add formatting to it.

Is it possible to be done by default? The only export option is to PDF. If there is some hack that I can apply I'm happy to spend some cycles on that but maybe there is already an option I'm missing.

I've find a few questions pointing to apps to directly do this (Editor or notes application with Markdown support?), but I'm trying to find an alternative with the native app.

    Why not just write markdown in notes.app and export when you need? I understand there are a lot of use cases here - but the benefit of markdown is that it's readable without the rendering. – bmike Jan 27 at 21:02
  • Maybe start using one of the endless apps that supports Markdown directly, vs using Notes.app. – Marc Wilson Jan 28 at 16:50
  • I can use the Notes.app formatting, but every now and then I write stuff that later I'd rather publish or put into a markdown file, can do the conversion manually, just like it would be good to have something out the box. – pablora Jan 29 at 9:31

Unfortunately the native app does not offer this.

There is an app available for macOS in the App Store called Exporter that offers this. I am not affiliated with the software.

Another option is exporting to PDF in Notes, (File > Export as PDF…), then exporting to Markdown using a website like this one: PDF To Markdown Converter

  • Thanks for the response my main thing is that having a native app taking it halfway there would be super helpful mostly because I can edit the document in multiple places and offline|online. I'll stay with this and then work something after. Thanks – pablora Jan 28 at 21:53
