Does anyone here know if BeerSmith can convert an extract recipe to an all-grain recipe?

That would be neat if it could though.

I've never done it, and may be all wet, but I did a little experiment with one of Beersmith's Extract recipes.. (Muddy Pig Oatmeal Stout).
I first duplicated the recipe so I wouldn't destroy the original.
I then pulled up the Muddy Pig Oatmeal Stout copy (Extract) and clicked on the Convert button top left.
I chose All Grain, Old Recipe type Extract and clicked OK.
The recipe converted to All Grain along with mashing schedule.

Am I wrong?

Hey that is kinda neat! I tried the Guiness Extra Stout from the Beersmith Archive folder. I wonder why it upped the flaked barley though.
