// Please enter a detailed description of the issue
// Description of the issue:

Fountain has some issues. The Preview is locked into overly narrow margins. Output has closer to correct margins.
And while /*deleted*/ paragraphs don’t show up (they are not supposed to), deleted sections in a paragraph do not get deleted.

/*this pararagh does not show up in preview*/

But is I only wanted to delete a small section of a paragraph /*for example this bit right here*/ it would still show up both in preview and output.

Also, on output, the PDF includes many random pagebreaks, so that a document that should be about 6 pages comes out to 14. This is less an issue for me, as I have other apps that can output, but real time previewing is what I love about marked.

I know fountain users probably make up an insignificant part of your userbase, so I understand if this is an ultra-low priority.
