Title: Markup
Post by: David Kenny on November 24, 2018, 03:44:53 PM
You mention using Markup in a recent post.  Can you be more specific? It's too generic a term to get good search results. I did search the forum in case you mentioned it before. Only found two other hits in much older threads.

Thanks,

David

I am using (and Jose is also) GitHub Markdown syntax to create simple ascii text files for our Help. I then use Pandoc to convert the Markdown files to HTML and then display them in the embedded webbrowser in the help viewer.

Here is the GitHub Markdown syntax:  https://help.github.com/categories/writing-on-github/

You got me... 
I should have the next update out as early as tomorrow. I just finished the documentation conversion to markup.
(Markup is sooooooo easy to use and it produces great looking documentation).

I only spent a few minutes searching for it.  Thanks for the info.
