Thank you for choosing Typora. This document will help you to start Typora.
Typora uses the feature: Live Preview, meaning that you could see these inline styles after you finish typing, and see block styles when you type or after you press
Enter key or focus to another paragraph. Just try to type some markdown in typora, and you would see how it works.
Note: Markdown tags for inline styles, such as
** will be hidden or displayed smartly. Markdown tags for block level styles, such as
- [x] will be hidden once the block is rendered.
To see full markdown Syntax references and extra usage, please check
Markdown Reference in menu bar.

You could use fuzzy search to find & open files in current folder quickly.
You could select a folder in the open file dialog popup from
Open menu to open a folder in Typora. Actually you do not need to open folder explicitly in this way, when you open a file, its parent folder will be automatically loaded, you could check the folder from “Files Sidebar”, which will be introduce below.
User can toggle sidebar from menubar or from titlebar on macOS and from status bar on Windows/Linux.
Typora has two types of sidebar:
In file tree mode, currently only folder and files that are supported by Typora (Markdown file, text file, etc) is displayed.

Mouse over the windows toolbar and click the outline icon on the right top of the window can open outline panel. This Panel can be pinned to left side.
Mouse over the windows toolbar will make word count visible. “Always show word count” can be set from preference panel. Click it will popup detailed word count tooltip. If a range of text is selected word count for selection will also be displayed on word count tooltip.
We create typora and want to make it your default markdown editor, thus copy and paste means copy from another app or paste to another app, instead of copy/paste from/to another markdown editor. Therefore, by default,
Copy As HTML ( and
Paste from HTML).
However, after click “Copy Markdown source by default”, typora will copy selected text in HTML/markdown format (When pasting, rich editors will accept the HTML format, while plain text / code editor will accept the markdown source code format).
To copy Markdown source code explicitly, please use shortcut key
Copy as Markdown from menu. To Copy as HTML Code, please select
Copy as HTML Code from menu.
Typora is able to analyze styles of the text content in your clipboard when pasting. For example, after pasting a
<h1>HEADING</h1> from some website, typora will keep the ‘first level heading’ format instead of paste ‘heading’ as plain text.
To paste as markdown source or plain text, you should use
paste as plain text or press the shortcut key:
Please refer to
Custom Themes from menu bar.
Currently Typora only support to export as PDF or HTML. More data format support as import/export will be integrated in future.
