Markdown is really meant as a starting point, you can write a normal
text file with things like *this* and _this_ and

- list like this
- as you can see

as well as headers up to several levels being converted by Pandoc to
odt, docx, rtf, html or whatever you need. However, converting (back)
to markdown will lose basically most non-semantic style information
(which can be an advantage). You can configure Pandoc to use an ODT or
DOCX file (or some template for other formats) to provide the styles
themselve to create the document exactly as you need it to import in

The nice thing here is that you can completely separate content from
format, and you can write anywhere in just text, but no need to lack
