Dear Brett,

I am working on a text in MultiMarkdown Composer (Version 4.3.1 (75)), and am using Marked2 to preview it. I have inserter MMD-style references in my text (i.e. [][#CiteKey]), but they are not recognized by Marked2. The same references are recognized and formatted properly if I preview my text in MultiMarkdown Composer. I am not sure what I am doing wrong with Marked2. Could you please help? Thank you for your patience and consideration.

Best regards,

    Under Preferences->Processor, do you have MultiMarkdown selected, or is
    it set to Discount (GFM)?

    Dear Brett,

    I apologize for contacting you again. This message is not a "polite" way to solicit an action, but a genuine attempt at understanding whether you had received the screenshots I sent you of how Marked2 and Multimarkdown Composer differ in how they process Multimarkdown citations. I wonder simply because I usually receive a message from you within a few days at most, while this time it's been a week. If you need me to resend that message or need more information, please do not hesitate to ask! Thank you very much for your time and consideration.

    Best regards,

    I'm sorry, I did a bunch of testing on it and was certain is gotten back to you on it. I'm away from keyboard at the moment, so this is from memory: if I copy the section of the MultiMarkdown documentation on citations it works fine. Your syntax seemed a little different, so I'm not sure if there were some changes in the latest MMD version in that area or not. Have you seen the MMD docs and can you tell me if something you're trying to do isn't covered there?
