I'm a software engineer, and I created MarkdownPad, a full-featured Markdown editor for Windows.

comment Are there any text editors which are Markdown aware and provide spell checking features?
@mgroves Spell check was added in version 2, which was released in March 2013: markdownpad.com/news/2013/introducing-markdownpad-2

comment Does a scratched DVD result in lost data, and how do I fix a scratched DVD?
+1 for Unstoppable Copier, that software is fantastic for grabbing data off bad/dying drives as well.

comment Can I set a ClickOnce application as the default program to open a filetype on a PC
(cont) This has been a frequently-requested feature, and I will be building in an integrated file association manager into future versions of MarkdownPad. I really need to write up a FAQ on the MarkdownPad website explaining ClickOnce, I've received several concerned emails from users who aren't familiar with the deployment system and are concerned about why they can't find the .exe :)

comment Can I set a ClickOnce application as the default program to open a filetype on a PC
MarkdownPad's developer here - By default, MarkdownPad (should) associate itself with .md, .mdown, and .markdown filetypes. You can manually associate filetypes with the MarkdownPad executable (it handles both ClickOnce and standard Windows args), but there is one major caveat when manually associating filetypes to the executable: When using the executable directly, the application will NOT be running in "ClickOnce mode" and will no longer receive automatic updates. You can verify this by going to Help -> About and "Not Deployed via ClickOnce" will be listed next to the version number.

comment Does a Windows ClickOnce application have to connect to the Internet?
As the developer of MarkdownPad, I can confirm this answer is correct. MarkdownPad is deployed via ClickOnce, which handles both the installation and automatic updates. An internet connection is required for the initial installation, but is not required for continued use (although as Scott pointed out, you won't receive automatic updates without an internet connection).

comment What popular applications that use ClickOnce as a depoyment solution?
@slhck This is not a subjective or open-ended question, an application is either using ClickOnce or it isn't. The problem to be solved is that I'm looking for applications that people might recognize so I can demonstrate the technology.
