# Unmatched Writing Experience
iA Writer is designed to provide the best digital writing experience: Keep your hands on the keyboard and your mind in the text.
# Embed Pictures, Tables and Nest Textfiles
Include images from Library in your documents (.png, .gif, .jpg)—images are uploaded to Medium and WordPress when sharing a draft. Include comma separated value files as tables in your documents (.csv), or create advanced tables using MultiMarkdown. Build a manuscript from several chapters, embed source code files as code blocks, or nest text files into each other.
Note: Embedding only works for files in the same folder (or subfolders) as the master file. You can’t embed files in a parallel or higher directory.
# Swipe Right to Library
iA Writer now comes with an integrated library for all your documents. With a swipe to the right you have easy access to all your texts in one place.
# Swipe Left to Preview
With synchronized scrolling Preview, iA Writer consciously separates form and content. It optimizes plain text writing while offering stellar formatted export—with world class typography.
# Focus Mode and Syntax Control
iA Writer is famous for offering a deeper focus on your text. Its unique tools improve your writing style by honing your concentration: One sentence at a time, or by highlighting different parts of speech.
