Remove WikiMarkup from Gedcom download

I was planning to use Wikitree as the primary repository for all my trees (12+)

I need to use the Family Book Creator (FBC) software feature of Family Tree Maker

When I do a Gedcom download from Wikitree it includes the wiki markup tags etc and it looks horrible in FBC

the info should look like it does in Profile mode

please create an option to leave the markup tags out of the Gedcom download

thanks

I downloaded a small gedcom with just over 300 people, that I imported into my desktop genealogy program. The reports generated by my software were essentially unreadable due to the way WikiTree exports data. I have spent several long days cleaning up the file, and still have a long way to go.

The Gedcom file loads fine into Family Tree Maker 2017 and I can create a decent Family Book using the Family Book Creator feature

Without the markup tags the Biography and source notes would look fine

I need Burial Place added in the Profile, where Birth Place and Death Place are entered as FBC creates a Places index and that gives a nice list of all the people buried in each cemetery.

I may find a few other "tweaks' are needed but I think the "workflow" is a good one
