Markdown Isn't Always Rendered

Reported by Anthony Craig | December 15th, 2017 @ 02:12 PM

While I was composing an email this morning, I noticed an odd behavior in which a Markdown-style link [](), when placed within a Markdown blockquote > did not render as HTML:

Notice how the Markdown links inside of my Markdown blockquote don't appear to render as HTML in the Preview side?

It doesn't always fail to convert to HTML, but it does often enough that I notice it.

    This happens when MailMate isn't sure that it can trust the quoted content to be Markdown (and therefore it's safer to not try to convert it). There's no GUI to override this yet, but there is a custom key binding selector:


    You are welcome to try/test that (if you use custom key bindings in MailMate). Here's an example binding:

    "^W"     = "assumeQuotedTextIsMarkdown:";

    @benny Didn't know about that option! I'll edit my Special.plist to include this key binding and will report back with feedback. Thanks for the reply 🙌🏼
