Re: Add-on for marked-up texts

That add-on was old. Very old. As in 2014 levels of old.

Its functionality had been long since absorbed into NVDA.

It is very hard to think of a reason to have preserved it.

websiteI have said it before, and I'll say it again, it's one thing to remove these things from the "active and maintained" page, but there should be a
corresponding "obsolete archived" page they could be kept on.  There are lots of folks who are using older versions of NVDA or might just use an older
version with an older add-on for task specific activities.  It's not "rocket science" to know that things on an "obsolete and archived" page will not work
with current releases, and it's easy enough when moving stuff to such to note something like, "works with NVDA versions up to {insert last version number it
works with here}."  There is no active support for such add-ons or problems with them, either.--
