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

I have a MultiMarkdown document that uses footnote references.

The source document looks like this:

Mike Scrafton[^1], John Menadue – Pearls and Irritations, 5 December 2019

The document viwed in Marked 2 on screen looks like this:

Mike Scrafton[1], John Menadue – Pearls and Irritations, 5 December 2019

The document when printed from Marked 2 looks like this:

Mike Scrafton1, John Menadue – Pearls and Irritations, 5 December 2019

The footnote of the printed document has the return to the footnote link symbol and then (#fnref:1)

If I export the document from Marked 2 the PDF document also has these codes.

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

  1. Same result on several documents
  2. If I use MarkEditor (an alternative Markdown Editor) with the same source documents the footnote codes are not there (as you would expect).

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

// Configuration (do not edit) Marked 2 978 (Mac App Store)

    I believe you have "Include URL as text annotation" enabled in Preferences->Export. Disable that and it should fix your formatting.

    Thank you! That’s exactly what it was.

    I really like Marked 2! I’ve had a 5 star review on the Mac App Store for quite a while!

    And his shingle bore the legend 'Peter Anderson and Co.’ ...
