Create New… > Markdown | Text file in project assets?


I just went to add a new markdown file to a project by right-clicking in the ‘Assets’ panel and opening the ‘New…’ menu. Much to my surprise there was no option to create a (or plain.txt) file, despite the editor rendering markdown files beautifully. Seeing as you can’t edit markdown files in the editor I guess this makes sense, but I often use markdown and text files for docs/notes/logs and not being able to create/edit these files in Defold requires that I keep another editor (VSCode/BBEdit) open to work with those files.

Any chance creating and editing plain text and markdown files might make it on the roadmap in the future?

It would have fairly low priority but it would definitely be useful! First step is to create a feature request:



Thanks, and done: issue #5301.
