I do not see the "send to" Marked2 as an option in Ulysses 3, even if the type in Ulysses is selected as Markdown per instructions.... all you can send to is Spark, Mail, Notes...

    So I can make this work, but to be clear there is not possible to do "live"previews in Marked2 from Ulysses 3 at this point, event if I am working with an external folder that stores the md files in Dropbox?

    Actually, it should work fine with external folders.

    I am also confused about if it's possible to get a live preview from Ulysses (as stated in the docs!). I can preview by hand from the share-to application toolbar item, or similarly from the preview - application toolbar item, but in neither case does it seem to be "live". Not a big deal, but it would be nice...

    If you're working with external files, marked should update every time you save the file. Make sure that the original file from Dropbox is what's open in Marked, make a change and hit cmd-s. It should update.

    Ah, I didn't realise it only applied to external files. That's a bit of a bummer, but I guess I understand why that might be the case.

    Right. In the case of internal database, there's nothing that marked can access to watch outside of the application.

    I'm having the same problem Manuel described in his original question: Marked2 doesn't come up as an application option from the "Send To" icon in the Quick Export for Ulysses3. (It has Notes, Messages, etc.)

    I have this problem with both external and internal files. I've tried it with options for Text/Markdown as well as Text/TextBundle. I've restarted both apps.

    (I'm not worried about the live preview that this thread ended up discussing.)

    Aha -- "Open In" instead of "Send To" works.

    I find quite odd that in Ulysses for Mac you caNnot search for a Group.

    I have like 150 groups and subgroups, and sometimes I need to find one and focus there.

    Am I missing something?

    Hi reg:

    I seem unable to find the menu for External Folder properties. There is a section in your support page, under External Folders, called Folder Settings, showing a popup windowd with file extension for new sheets (md or bundle), save links as, etc.

    I do not know how in the world you bring that options to pop up!

    @Manuel, right click on the folder in the sidebar and choose "Edit".

    That does not bring the menu up, it just edits the name of the folder

    And the link you sent me has nothing to do with the question, that link is about a very old question.

    My current question is about how to access the Dropbox external folder properties

    You added your question to a very old question. I did not send you a link other than to this conversation that you continued.

    It's not the subfolder you need to click, but the parent folder. In the screenshot above, right clicking on the folder parent called "Ulysses" and choosing edit will give you the options you're looking for.
