I've been using Microsoft Word for note-taking, and git for version control. The problem is that git can't diff the Microsoft Word files, so I'd like to switch to using a plaintext format. However, I still want to be able to paste images into my documents. I want to be able to do this easily so as not to interrupt the flow of note-taking (I'm not looking to edit HTML or something like that). I think my ideal word processor for this kind of task would display a document with text and images, but actually store the file as plaintext with links to the images and store the images separately. Is there a program that would work for this use case?
CudaText editor (free, cross platform) allows this. Using plugin "Insert Pics".
- Install plugin from menu: Plugins / Addon Manager / Install, enter "insert pics".
- Call plugin commands from menu: Plugins / Insert Pics.
