I tried a few note taking apps but in the end came to the realization that regular editors are actually better at the job.

My reasoning:

* _Sync_ should not be solved by the note app (applications that implement sync themselves are usually buggy, I prefer to outsource sync to nextcloud / dropbox / ...)

* I want the same _editing capabilities_ as usual (block edit etc., note apps are usually less power full editors)

* A _tree organization_ is important to me, which is trivially solved using editors and the file system

* There are _Markdown_ packages for pretty much every editor.

Note taking apps tend to ship these features but are not as mature as editors are.
