Convert to Markdown missing

from my recollection there was a menu option to convert text files into markdown in version prior to 2.9

Do I remember correctly and if so, is there a reason for that?

Many thanks, Andreas

No, there was never such an option. Plain texts can be “converted” simply by changing the extension.

Hi. If you desire in “converting” files to Markdown is to be able to view them as rendered markdown easily, you might (or might not) find a script I wrote to toggle the default for how Markdown is viewed useful. It is at [url]Toggling the "Best Alternative" display of Markdown files]
