Install Markor / Update to latest version

You can install (& update) Markor from GitHub Releases and F-Droid.

Google Play
The 2.8.0 version remains available, but no updates will be deployed to Google Play. The available downloads on GitHub are signed by me (gsantner) and have the same signature like on Google Play. This means you can download the *.apk from GitHub and directly install the update if you currently use the Google Play version.

Markor is also available from F-Droid, the store for free & open source apps. The *.apk’s available for download are signed by the F-Droid team and guaranteed to correspond to the (open source) source code of Markor. Generally this is the recommended way to install Markor & keep it updated.

Admonition: block-styled side content

The Admonition Extension allows for easy creation of beautiful colored boxes.
Helpful when you often work with side notes and boxed content.

Snippets / Custom templates

Create as many custom snippets / templates you like by placing textfiles in the subdirectory .app/snippets of your Markor notebook (start) directory.
Open a document and place the cursor on whatever position you want to insert text.
Then click the new snippets button on the bottom-bar (see screenshot) and select the desired snippet.

Note: The snippet directory is automatically created the first time you click the snippets button in the bottom-bar.

The right place to ask

If you have questions or found an issue please head to Markor GitHub and ask there. Search for same and related issues/questions before, it might be already answered or resolved.

Every day I (gsantner) get many personal emails containing feature requests & questions about Markor. It takes much time to answer these things. Often it is already answered public - or to another person as response in private email. This means wasted time, which can’t be used for improving & developing Markor.

You are kindly asked to discuss at the proper place, which is GitHub.
