Writerside Help

Import from Markdown

If you have existing documentation authored in Markdown, you can import it as a new Writerside project or manually add specific Markdown files as topics to your current Writerside project.

Create new documentation project

  1. From the main menu, select File | New | Project.

  2. In the New Project wizard, select Import from MD and click Next.

  3. Select the location of your Markdown sources.

    The wizard will show you a list of Markdown files in the selected location. You can choose which files you want to import.

    If you do not want to import images and videos, clear the Copy all media files used in selected Markdown files checkbox.

    Click Next.

  4. Specify the name and location for your new project and click Finish.

Add Markdown files as topics

If you have existing Markdown files, you can add them as topics to your Writerside project.

  1. In the Table of Contents pane of the Writerside tool window, click Add New Topic and select Add Local Markdown Files.

  2. Select the directory with Markdown files.

  3. In the Add Local Markdown Files dialog, select the files that you want to import as topics and click OK.

Once Markdown files are in your Writerside project, you can use semantic elements and attributes to enhance your topics with Tabs, Collapsible blocks, Switchable content, and other markup. For more information, see Markup.
