>From my experience, it seems that zim picks up files with .txt ending and includes them into the zim structure as if they were pages, regardless of header or not. I have put some asciidoc pages with the extension .txt in my zim, and they show up as pages, and since the syntax is not that different, zim does a job on handling the syntax. Unfortunately, zim also inserts the header into the file on which asciidoc will later barf. My workaround is to give the files some other extension than .txt. I use zim as a reference organizer and found it quite convenient that text files actually were editable in zim itself, except for the fact that the header was added automatically.
Now I wonder what the motivation is to have additional markup language support in zim? (a general question that anybody feeling for it may answer). The zim markup lines up nicely to the features that are available in zim. Replacing the zim markup seems to be nogo for zim pages. From my perspective it is more a need to have zim respect files with other markup and leave them alone or parse as far as it is able and leave the rest untouched (more like the principles of XML) both in input and when saving to disk. Many markup languages have comment commands which does not show up in the rendered text. If I could add a comment // zim: no-touch to the beginning of all my asciidoc files and zim would look for that before it decides to include it in its structure, I would be happy. This won't help for external files that I decide to put inside the domain of zim, but most of the text files in my structure are made by me. At the moment, I solve by using a different extension, but that sometimes give the fileview plugin a tough time when I try to open with an external application, as some extensions are assigned to specific applications. -- Svenn _______________________________________________ Mailing list: https://launchpad.net/~zim-wiki Post to : firstname.lastname@example.org Unsubscribe : https://launchpad.net/~zim-wiki More help : https://help.launchpad.net/ListHelp
