Re: Using Zim as document editor


Hallo Johan,

Jij ook de de beste wensen voor het nieuwe jaar !

The workflow basically relies on "covert xyz --> zim, edit zim, convert zim
--> xyz". Obviously, the bottleneck is the accuracy of the converter to
reproduce the original content as close as possible and reflect the edits

Probably the best tool to try would be pandoc ( https://pandoc.org/ ) which
does support zim format among many text based formats.

 Hope this works for you,
