    Hi there,
    We would like to get more feedback on which of the two scenarios are more important to you:
    1. The ability to create new pages in OneNote from markdown? OR
    2. The ability to recall OneNote pages as markdown?

        Please add this feature.

        1. The ability to create new pages in OneNote from markdown?

        I absolutely live in VS Code. Being able to share meaningful snippets via MD or even an integrated workflow between two *cough* MS products would be very, very useful.

        This is literally the only thing that is stopping me from consolidating all my notetaking into OneNote.

        😒

        Taking notes on programming with snippets and markdown would be awesome. And exporting option to Medium/WordPress would be great as well

        I also hope you can support Markdown for writing. Since there are many notes software supporting Markdown, such as Evernote, etc.

        I would would like to be able to create OneNote pages as Markdown. As a developer this is much faster in capturing notes especially with code examples.

        I would like to see some form of markdown so I can copy and paste code into One Note where it would include the styles and formatting.

        I am using Markdown Monster which is cool for writing complete documents. Have a chat with Rick Strahl - maybe he can get it in there :)

        The ability to create notes in markdown and then be able to edit those same notes as markdown later would be the best thing ever.

        This is the last feature I’m waiting for to switch to OneNote completely. Please add this!

        Option 1 is more important as I find the syntax for Markdown excellent for rapid note-taking.
        Option 2 would be nice for exporting to GitHub/web
