Enable Markdown syntax in rich text elements

The ability to use the markdown language in rich text fields will allow non-technical collaborators to quickly and easily format text without needing access to the Webflow core toolset. Markdown is widely used in many CMS and editing systems where collaboration is spread across many job functions.

Here's a link to the syntax:

    Really wish that markdown support was natively available in Webflow.

    For anyone needing this now, you can add this support using showdown.js and a bit of jQuery. You can place your markdown code inside of HTML Embeds, which are now supported inside of Richtext content, and can be stored in the CMS.

    Bonus, you can create HTML tables this way, also using Markdown.

    This would be great, less marketing more markdown Vlad!

    Hey everyone! I had this EXACT same problem.

    So I build a chrome extension to convert markdown that is copy/pasted into the rich text field :)

    PLEASE PLEASE do this. My company is migrating to Webflow and this is now a 100% show-stopper for us. The current editor is absolutely horrific. We can't even add ordered lists.

    This would be really helpful especially when you use Zapier and getting text from other apps.

    Fully into it! It'd really help. The current Rich text editor is too simple. Markdown should help. Especially with syntax highlighting in rich text.

    Hey there, this is really critical to have markdown support, we were planning to do a massive migration from Medium to Webflow for all of our blog content and push them into webflow using markdown format.

    We have the markdown files, but it appears we aren't able to make this work..

    Any updates?

    Will markdown be supported in the near future or should we look into alternatives?

    Thank you!

    and still no response? It's been 2 years now. Are you guys at Workflow too busy selling "business integration" to take care of your actual users? (devs)
