    Zettlr and Abricotine are the best I have found, though still not perfect.

    You might like Zettlr, that's what I currently use.
  • WorldAnvil Alternatives?
    You could try a markdown setup, using programs like Obsidian or Zettlr. It's all in plain text files, so you can keep them forever regardless of programs.

    I can happily report that – one of the apps "inspired" by success and insta-cult of Roam Research, same as Zettlr, Dendron etc. – is free (in-house sync and publishing options nonwithstanding), snappy and comfy on par with Day One, about half as powerful as OneNote (which is to say, powerful enough), extensible and, due to the simplicity of operations it performs over files and folders, will not be able to lock you in. Most important of all, it's just not freaking annoying, not gimmicky nor clunky. I enjoy using a journaling tool again. It's actually a great feeling. It is fun.

    Otherwise for notetaking only there is Obsidian and Zettlr.
  • TikZ - can be load on Zettlr ? (diagrams for economics) | 2021-02-04
    You would need to take any Pandoc LaTeX template, so either the Pandoc one or the Zettlr one, and insert this usepackage-command anywhere before \begin{document}! You just have to tell Zettlr to use our custom template instead of the built-in.
