afaict (and it's not that easy in this thread :-) we were talking about
"connecting" the text frame in scribus with an external file.

as much as i love (not i confess not use that often) markdown, i wonder
if the user will be happy to lose all the formatting they carefully did
in scribus, each time the markdown source file is edited.
or, what would be the usecases in which this would be acceptable /
wished by the scribus user?

but i think that we should put a markdown import filter on the todo

have a nice evening
