Auto Markdown Error

The following error occurs whenever I click Convert to/from Markdown button inside a card text.

Debug info:
Anki 2.1.44 (b2b3275f) Python 3.8.6 Qt 5.14.2 PyQt 5.14.2
Platform: Mac 10.16
Flags: frz=True ao=True sv=2
Add-ons, last update check: 2021-07-18 17:47:55
Add-ons possibly involved: ⁨Auto Markdown⁩

Caught exception:

AttributeError: ‘NoneType’ object has no attribute ‘encode’

It seems the add-on needs updating to work with recent Anki versions.
Try this updated version of the add-on instead: Auto Markdown - fix version - AnkiWeb
