I use Nisus Writer Pro for a lot of my writing . I would like to see how I can convert their files to MarkDown by saving to Marked 2 for conversion

    Nisus files are rich text (a proprietary version of RTF), which Marked
    does not handle by default. There are macros you can use in Nisus to
    generate Markdown, though. I use one for TidBits, I'd have to ask them
    if it's available for public sharing or not.

    If you could send me the macro or a variation of it or give me some hints I would be grateful.

    Do you think that a RTF to Markdown service would be a good project? How difficult would that be for you?

    Do you have any suggested workflows that could be used for RTF to Markdown?

    How about a Macro that could be used for public use?

    Thanks in advance for your help.

    I've done some RTF -> Markdown scripts, but RTF is messy and
    unpredictable. A NWP macro makes more sense, as it has a certain amount
    of predictability to it. I'm currently using a proprietary one that I've
    been asked not to share, but I can probably come up with a reasonable
    facsimile when I get time.

    Please let me know when you come up with the NWP macro.

    Meanwhile I will try building some macros as well.

    I also thought of exporting rtf to HTML and then using one of your service tools or Pandoc to see what I come up with.
