Support document outline for markdown file

feature-request

#1

We have document outline for .R script, .RMarkdown, but not for plain markdown files. I believe this is simple enough to support, and it should be very useful.

I probably suggested this in rstudio forum before but didn't see any update about this yet.


#2

Perhaps I misunderstand, but Rmarkdown is a markdown document, just with support for R, bash, python, latex etc.. Also, Rmarkdown supports markdown documents.


#3

document outline is the table of content view in right side of editor, enabled by the rightmost toolbar button in rmd editor. It will show the title/subtitle, chunk title, function name etc in hierarchy.

When you open a .md in rstudio, the document outline feature is not available. Since markdown document do have title/subtitle, an outline can be very helpful in navigating and overview.
