File Extension Index Quirk

I’m returning to DTP after an absence of some many months of tweaking my own workflow, I’d like to use DTP to index my text files and a large collection of PDF files. My last time that I used DTP I was importing everything, but I think this time around, I’d rather index things so I can access the files on my own via the terminal when I’m not in DT.

Anyway. I use Ikiwiki as well for managing/viewing/organinzing many of my files, and all of these files have .mdwn extensions. They’re just plain text files though. Is there a way to get DT to deal with these files?



The next maintenance release will handle this extension. In the meantime the only workaround is to either add a .txt extension or to change the HFS file type to TEXT.
