At my new job, what documentation there is is in Markdown. The engineers
set up a script using pandoc to create some functional PDF output. The
problem is that pandoc requires LaTex to produce the PDF, which doesn't
give me very much control of things like the location of images in the
document (or the ability to create links).

I've played around with Atom and SublimeText, but neither gives me all that
much more control over the PDF output. I've also suggested the company
start using Confluence, which would solve the problem, but it seems like
that will take a bit of planning.

Any suggestions?
