Thanks to some excellent suggestions from GitHub user
1.16 has a mother-load of new features.
Version Checking: When a new version of MDE is published, an icon will appear in the title bar. I tried to make it subtle enough to inform without be annoying.
The big red arrow is doesn’t appear in the production version :)
Alternate Line Endings: Apparently, some Mac users are defecting and using MDE. Scandalous! But I won’t tell.
Export to Word and PDF: Check out the
Save Asdialog. There are options to save the to
htmlwas added to be consistent. Don’t worry, the original shortcuts for exporting to
htmlstill work. (Issue #68, #69)
Fix image preview: Relative paths to images were broken in the preview. (Issue #70)
Support for custom Markdown converters: This one is kind of geeky, but you can use a different Markdown converter provided it’s a console application and reads and writes to standard input/output. This is mostly for those who want to tweak the Pandoc settings MDE uses. You’ll have to edit the settings file directly. Example:
"CustomMarkdownConverter": "pandoc -f markdown_mmd -t html"
This is also used for preview so it’s best if you stick to converting to HTML. (Issue #67)
Fix Crash on Bad Settings: MDE would unceremoniously die if the settings file was corrupted. (Issue #49).
Remove auto image pasting from clipboard: Did you know you could paste an image to MDE and it would automatically upload it to MDE? As well intentioned as that was, it represented a privacy issue so I removed it. (Issue #73).
