Hi,

Would it be possible to remove markdown from the exclude list in the global options file?

I believe markdown is used by many people nowadays (including myself) and it would be great if we didn't need to adjust the options file on every update.

Thanks

You're free to try to convince Neil to change the global options file,
but if your entire argument is "I would rather not have to adjust the
global options on every update" then what you're talking about is
precisely the point of the user options file.

Hi John,

You're right. It's was a little reductive :)


Like I stated before, Markdown is very popular, so used by a lot of people. I believe the Scite editor is the right tool for the job as you can write the markup in Plain text and use syntax highlighting.

I use Scite as the go to editor for markdown in favor of other great dedicated editors like for example Typora or ghostwriter because it's so lightweight and can easily be integrated with other tools like pandoc for export.

I hope you consider my question.

Thank you

The OP asked me on a Lexilla issue and I said

SciTE’s menus should be kept to a reasonable length by limiting the default language set. I only use Markdown with online issue trackers like GitHub but perhaps others are often editing Markdown offline and it would be worthwhile replacing a less-often used language with Markdown.

I misinterpreted this one, my apologies.

I use markdown a lot for all my technical documents, that's my main reason :)

But I will start another thread to ask for languages to exclude.

thanks
