    Help with gedit and markdown

    I make notes to myself to keep a record of tips and tricks for future reference. While I could do so in LibreOffice Writer, I prefer something simpler like gedit.

    In gedit, if I go into View > Highlight > Markup and choose Markdown, I can use fairly simple means to **bold** or _italicise_ text, or to mark text as `code` or as an <URL>.

    This is without adding any plug-in for gedit. What I want to know is whether there's a way just to see the effect and not the effect plus the means to achieve it. In other words, using bold as an example, if I bold something, it requires a flanking pair of asterisks: **these words are bold**. But is there a way not to see the asterisks and just have the bold effect? Is there a way to see just these words are bold and not **these words are bold**?

    Solved in a manner of speaking by installing Retext (and Qt 4 settings).
