I'm trying to export a document to Markdown, in VoodooPad 5.4.0. The pages are mostly in RTF
I discovered the "Markdown" format option in the Web Export and have been experimenting with it, but it seems far from complete. The exporter includes HTML tags throughout (see the attached example), doesn't correctly export lists or checkboxes, and ignores pasted images, tables and page anchors.
Am I using this wrong/not for what it was intended, or is it just not completely implemented yet?
Any advice on how to achieve a result that preserves more of the formatting would be most appreciated

The "Markdown" Web Export format option doesn't work well in VoodooPad 5 and will be removed in VoodooPad 6.
Do you just need a "Markdown" export option that exports text pages as Markdown files and exports other pages (e.g., images) as-is?

thanks for confirming
yes I'm looking for a "Markdown" export option that will (as much as
possible) preserve/translate the formatting of RTF format pages.
Admittedly the goal here is to see if I can transfer the VoodooPad content
to another application (Obsidian) which works on text files and renders as
I've also looked at the voodoopad-tools Python package at
https://github.com/primatelabs/voodoopad-tools but that doesn't seem
compatible with the format of pages in the current version

If you're comfortable running Python scripts there may be a quick and dirty way to do this with pandoc and the voodoopad-tools scripts. Let me noodle around with this and get back to you.
