Byword has been my go-to Markdown editor for many years. I love the Byword editor. But I have always opened the large annual roll-up of my Daily Note files in the BBEdit editor because very large Markdown files were unpleasantly sluggish to deal with in Byword on a Mac.
However today I tried once again to open a year’s worth of Daily Notes in one Markdown document on my M1 MacBook Air and was pleasantly surprised to see how snappy Byword (version 2.9.5) handles them!
I don’t know what they did to improve Byword on the Mac, but I appreciate the improvement that apparently arrived quietly in their most recent update.
