Discovered this yesterday. Cross platform and pretty low foot print. Everything is plain text but displayed in line as Rich Text (through Markdown). You can get a free license if you request one for now. Worth checking out.

Me too. I've been using it the last few days. Clean, works with text/MD, has nice little tools for doing basic markup with shortcuts. It's still a subset of Markdown, though more than adequate for most people I suppose, and exports to PDF, .docx, HTML5, LaTeX, ePub, PanDoc etc. The developer's gone down the Not Kevin route: get the basic thing stable, then get it out there and see how it flies. So far, I like it a lot.

I join in. Haven't tested it extensively, but it's nice, works well, and have the feeling the developer is receptive to suggestion (look at the forum in the website).

So disappointing to find (again) that developers require Mac OS-X 10.6+ (but support XP+ on the Win side.) Scrivener continues to support OS 10.4 ... a blessing. Obviously a whole lot more has changed with Mac than with Windows!

Another nice tip that leads to a dead end ...

Even we have to post two different versions, now, though - one for 10.6+ and another for 10.4-10.5. And Scapple is 10.6+ only. Apple has made supporting earlier systems more difficult - it is not even possible to build an app that supports 10.4 on Lion and Mountain Lion. I have to boot into Snow Leopard to build the version for Tiger and Leopard users, and if I dropped support for those earlier systems I could strip out hundreds of lines of compatibility code.
