[Gmsh] Medit file format

Hello gmsh community,

  I would like to ask if it is possible to save a 3D mesh generated by  
gmsh in medit file format. I have a cube, I set both the faces of the  
cube and its volume as physical before saving the mesh as a medit  
file. However, when I re-open the saved file with gmsh, I see only 2D  
faces of the cube meshed, the 3D elements in the interior of the cube  
are missing.
  I found some older posts in the mailing list archive (2007) with the  
same question. The reply was 'the support of medit file format is  
highly experimental and not recommended to use'. What's the status  
  If gmsh cannot save directly correct medit files, does anyone know  
of any other way of converting msh -> medit? Thanks for any  

Best regards,

    Martin Vymazal
