Nested is an open source text editor that lets you create and edit structured documents such as reports, publications, books, presentations etc. The application is designed for the purpose of keeping the user’s concentration on content writing instead of format or markup. The application has a rich WYSIWYM (What-You-See-Is-What-You-Mean) interface, enabling users to focus on structuring and writing the document instead of its appearance. The application hosts several examples for helping new users, formatting buttons, image gallery, assisted links, and easy options to publish document in HTML, LaTeX or PDF. Read on to find out more about Nested.

It includes pre-processing and post-processing options for advanced users, including advanced theming, LaTeX formula support, keyboard shortcuts etc. Nested separates the written text from publishing options, allowing the user to present it in HTML web page, IEEE publication, PDF book etc. Nested files can be viewed and edited with any text editor, since they are saved as plain text.

The application has Title pane to the left, and space for writing/editing content at the right side. Toolbars with different options such as New, open Save, Properties, Publish, Insert Code, Ordered Lists. Cut, Copy etc, are available at the top and bottom of the interface.
