Enhance with markdown

Quotion improves your experience of using Apple Notes by allowing you to use markdown to write your notes. You can also download your notes as markdown files.


Write your notes with markdown

Apple Notes already has most common formatting options built-in, but markdown gives you the ability to achieve more useful formatting options than what is possible with Apple Notes alone, like callouts, programming code highlighting.

Here is an example of how you can use markdown to format your notes.

Please note that the common formatting options already available in Apple Notes are not listed here.

Markdown post


Don't use any Apple Notes formats with markdown in the same line, or markdown won't work.

It's safe to use markdown with Apple Notes in different lines, e.g. a title uses Apple Notes format, a body text uses markdown.

Partial HTML is available as well

Since markdown supports partial HTML, you can also write some basic HTML code. Such as


  Something small enough to escape casual notice.

YouTube embed code

  title="YouTube video player"
  allow="accelerometer; autoplay; clipboard-write; encrypted-media; gyroscope; picture-in-picture; web-share"

Due to security risks, many html features like scripts, and styles are not available. Please use Quotion built-in JavaScript & CSS functionality instead.
