Use of markdown in plain text fields to define Word formatting upon export

Jul 18, 2013 at 10:34 AM
Hi,

Just wanted to share an idea that crossed my mind. Currently, plain text fields do not have any definite way to apply formatting that would be both human-readable in plain text and allow easy transformation into "true" rich-text formatting. I believe markdown is a good candidate for said purpose so you might want to consider markdown support in future releases of the add-in.

Also, I believe rich MS Word formatting could be translated backwards to markdown syntax to improve plain text readability.
