In your predefined snippets, you have two interesting ones:

"Markdown code lines"
"Markdown inline code"

Problem: if you open a markdown file (the common file extension is .md), then the VA menu "Surround with VA Snippet" is not available, which makes these snippets useless.

The .md files, which are a documentation standard, should benefit from the same VA support as comment sections in source code.

I wasn't able to find those snippets. Are you seeing them in the VA Snippet Editor?

I've opened a case for at a minimum treating .md / .markdown similar to .txt: case=116064.

Maybe I did those snippets many years ago then forgot ;)
But that does remove the problem. Thanks for opening a case.

I don't recall ever seeing those snippets myself, or dealing with markdown files, so I suspect you did add these yourself. That's only relevant because I am just checking that we have not lost snippet support for markdown files without anyone noticing

Out of interest, what is a "markdown" file? I am familiar with the concept of markdown as a standard for text formatting for websites, so am I correct in assuming that a markdown file is simply a txt file that uses markdown formatting?

Yes. The standard file extension is .md
This is really a standard today, especially with the advent of github.

Good to know, thank you. I occasionally go hunting for code samples on Github, but haven't really looked at it beyond that. Always something new to learn :) Also good to know we haven't broken this, it's just not yet supported.
