Support of Markdown file in Aspose.Words for .NET


Aspose.Words’s supported formats page don’t have *.md as supported one.
But when we tried to detect markdown file with Aspose.Words.FileFormatUtil.DetectFileFormat(inputStream) it successfully detected it as Markdown.
After that we tried to convert it to PDF and conversion were success.

Should we add Markdown as exception or this format is supported?
We noticed that generated file is different from how it looks in other products, Eg. Aspose.PDF

File example: (1.9 KB)



Aspose.Words does support Markdown load format. Please check the load formats support by Aspose.Words from here:

We will update documentation for Supported Document Formats. We apologize for your inconvenience.

Thanks for clarification

Hi there,

I see that Aspose.Words is supporting md format in the latest 2.6 .NET version of this component. I was able to convert it to PDF successfully.

Also, I see that the LoadFormat Enum | Aspose.Words for .NET states that the md is supported as a load format.

Can you please confirm that?

Thank you!
