I just posted this but it went into a related discussion rather than a new one - sorry.

Hi Brett
Love Marked and nvAlt. Thank you.

I do have a problem though. I have Marked 2.5.35 (978) via Setapp on a Macbook Pro (late-2013) running Mojave. I downloaded the trial from your web site but the problem is the same.

Here's a very silly bit of Markdown to show the problem:

#Heading 1

##Heading 2

What a test setup [@Reed:1861aa, 123]


Using Pandoc, I'd expect the citation to appear at the end in the Reference Section, but it doesn't - well not at first sight.

The top half of the attachment shows the Markdown correctly but the citation hasn't been handled as I want. When I toggle the custom processor, as per the lower half, the citation gets done properly but everything else is wrong.

The custom processor path is /usr/local/bin/pandoc and the args are -f markdown -t html5 -s --filter pandoc-citeproc --bibliography /users/mickreed/Documents/Dropbox/BiBTex_Files/MJR.bib

Any ideas?

    This sounds like a Pandoc issue, rather than a Marked one. Does the same command from your processor setup work on the command line (Terminal)?
