Convert plain text to rich text
1 project | reddit.com/r/scrivener | 22 Feb 2022
If you really want to stop using Markdown to write with, then the best solution will be to use a proper conversion tool to turn these into word processing documents, such as DOCX or ODT, and then import that into Scrivener. I don't think (without plugins anyway) that Obsidian has any way of making this easier, but a good general purpose tool for this is Pandoc.
Taking notes in class with LaTeX
3 projects | reddit.com/r/neovim | 1 Jul 2022
Consider writing notes using Markdown + Pandoc to compile to PDF (or other formats). Markdown is less typing than LaTeX, making it good for quick writing that doesn't need exquisite control over the typesetting. Plus, Pandoc's flavor of Markdown supports LaTeX-style $...$ and $$...$$ math.
Formatting and posting to multiple sites
1 project | reddit.com/r/pokemonfanfiction | 29 Jun 2022
I write in markdown and convert it to html with pandoc (which I can then upload to FFN or AO3) or to bbcode (which I can upload to forums) with this random converter I found.
Overleaf to doc/MS word file
1 project | reddit.com/r/LaTeX | 28 Jun 2022
You can use pandoc to convert the document to .docx, and that'll turn it into a Word table, but it's not going to "look nice".
Math on GitHub: Following Up
7 projects | news.ycombinator.com | 28 Jun 2022
I wonder how pandoc does this. You can convert Markdown to PDF (`pandoc test.md -o test.pdf`), it uses the same syntax as GitHub ($ signs only, no backticks) and it fares a lot better than GitHub in a few of the tests outlined in the article. It's not perfect but clearly something better can be done.

Would have been a better name for pandoc. Because LaTeX.
HTML vs Rich Text. Which one do you use?
1 project | reddit.com/r/AO3 | 20 Jun 2022
tag if I copy-pasted that directly. Also, I don't manually add every tag - I have a script that adds them to each line, and does a few other things (although I was recently told about pandoc which is a tool that can convert pretty much any document type to any other, including html and has made my script obsolete!).
I imported my old notes into Obsidian and my graph was FRICKEN RAD
1 project | reddit.com/r/ObsidianMD | 19 Jun 2022
For me, I exported from OneNote and then used pandoc to convert to markdown (PDF and docx source files worked for me).
Generate PDF and Epub files using Pandoc
1 project | dev.to | 19 Jun 2022
I write my books using Markdown. Using a tool called Pandoc you can convert Markdown files into PDF's and Epub files. Lets take a look at the commands.
Your word processor of choice?
1 project | reddit.com/r/FanFiction | 17 Jun 2022
It seems there's a tool called pandoc which can, among other things, convert rich text formats (odt, docx) to HTML.
Rendering LaTeX in Markdown with actual LaTeX
3 projects | reddit.com/r/rust | 13 Jun 2022
I just wrote a simple Pandoc filter that renders LaTeX fragments in markdown with just LaTeX itself over the past weekend. I intend to use it for my blog but it's probably also worth sharing.
