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

Transclude files not rendered when a missing transclude file is subsequently added.

// Please enter a list of steps required to reproduce the issue // Steps to reproduce:

  1. I created a top level .md which referenced three {{}} files which didn’t yet exist
  2. I opened the top level .md in Marked2, and it happily rendered the raw text showing {{}} — because the files don’t exist yet.
  3. I created the file with some text in it.
  4. When I returned to Marked2, it didn’t update and include the contents of I had to close and re-open the top level file in Marked2 to make it render the newly added file.

// If applicable please attach a sample document that causes the issue for you.

// Configuration (do not edit) Marked 2 930 (Mac App Store)

    Marked can only watch for changes on files that exist. If there's no
    file to watch, Marked can't add a filesystem watcher for it, thus it's
    not aware when the new file shows up. Once the file exists, a simple
    reload (⌘R) should make it appear, and from that point changes in the
    included file should trigger a preview update. Let me know if that
