Description

Currently you can only set the the Text formatting to Textile or Markdown globally. You can't manually select what you prefer at user/issue/project base.

Additionally upgrading from Textile to Markdown is error prone and at some size it is not manageable to manually fix the caused problems due conversion (Reformat plugin).
So there is no reasonable way to convert from textile to markdown.
Even then long term users might insist that they are used to textile and they do not know markdown (ofc there is a workaround, learning a new syntax).

Please add the possibility to choose the formatting at user/issue/project base.
Without the option a transition from textile to markdown is pretty impossible (old stuff could keep textile, new stuff markdown).
