    This is on the so-called wishlist that Giuseppe has compiled. I assume that wishlist is not ordered in any particular way, so although this feature is way down it does not necessarily mean it has lower priority.

    Nevertheless, does anyone know what the chance is of this ever getting implemented and on what sort of timline?

    The only one who would know is signore Penone, and as you know he is busy porting. When is is done doing that, I am sure he will look at implementing items on the wish list.
    I am confident that whatever changes @Giuseppe makes, will be for the better even if it takes time. So what? We’ve managed before, and surely there are workarounds that will do until @giuspen releases a solution to a (maybe perceived, e.g.,the hour/minute boxes in the search dialog, which in my mind is pretty obvious) problem. Even if CT can’t do everything imaginable it is, for me, a crucial application where I keep everything I’ve done professionally over the last ten years (data, notes, reports, reference publications and info of all sorts).
    So, patience and to all, a continued nice summer

    @sisyfos: sure. I love CT too, having tried Evernote, OneNote, and having looked at a bunch of others I am convinced CT is one of the best out there.

    Having said that, we need good export capabilities, and right now there is only export to PDF, plain text, or HTML, of which the latter is not working. And export to plain text is useless if you don’t get the formatting with it; I love plain text, which is why I personally would like to have the export to Markdown capablity.

    In fact, there are no decent export options.
    HTML: I tried a node with 2 subnodes, and all I got in all 3 was an index showing a list of the 3 (sub)nodes.
    A single nod may or may not export to HTML.

    Plain text: works but if there are titled links to webpages the URLs are lost.
    Formatting is also lost.

    PDF: works, but if there are titled links to webpages the URLs are lost.

    Conclusion: none of the export options are satisfactory. Markdown export is definitely needed. In know it will not happen before the porting project is completed, but how soon after that will this be tackled??

    I haven’t tried the various export options, but Plain text is, as the name suggests, plain text, i.e., text without formatting, links etc etc. Just text.
    Formatting and links are not supposed to remain when exported as plain text.

    @sisyfos: I am fully aware of that, which is why I am pushing for markdown as an export option. At least the CT formatting will be preserved as markdown characters.
