Exporting manuscript chapters to rtf (also file imports?)

I noticed that when exporting manuscript chapters there's no rtf option.
The distraction-free writing software I like to write in uses rtf so it would be extremely handy to be able to quickly export files so I can jump between the two without a bunch of copy-pasting.
Related, it would also be very handy to be able to import txt, docx, rtf etc files back into the manuscript module, either replacing a current file or adding a new one (this would also make it easier to import existing works into blaze from other writing software).

Hey Emelie, thanks for logging this!

RTF export would probably be one of the easiest file formats to add, so I'll get it on our list of things to update in the export overhaul we have planned for later this month. Our designer is currently drawing up some templates for the more graphic export types like PDF and DOCX, so once he's finished up we'll get to building in those updates.

Regarding document import, we don't currently have a system for that in place so might be a while until we get a chance to look into that, but we're working on better paste from clipboard functionality straight into the Manuscript that would preserve formatting and hopefully function just the same as manually importing the file itself.

Thanks again for reaching out, we always appreciate the feedback!
