Trouble with image size specification from Ulysses into textbundle

I wouldn't want to distract Brett from his work on NVUltra, but I’ve come into an unfortunate issue with images inside Ulysses documents.

Since version 15 of Ulysses, one can specify dimensions in the metadata of images. It works well in the built in preview, but not in Marked. Instead of the sized image, one gets a weird syntax like this :

![Famous castle][Famous castle]( height=300)
![][](assets/DraggedImage–1.tiff height=75px)

I’ve checked the Markdown source inside the textbundle, it looks OK to me :

![Famous castle]( height=300)
![](assets/DraggedImage-1.tiff height=75px)

Attached is a demo textbundle.

Thank you very much for your kind attention.

    Which processor are you using?

    I’m using MultiMarkdown and no preprocessor. Attached are the preferences panes in question.

    I'm afraid the version of MultiMarkdown in Marked does not allow image
    attributes within inline image tags.

    (though you may have better luck if you switch to the Discount

    I was wondering if this issue was addressed. I am using Ulysses and my image links break if I specify size. They work if no size is specified. In the example below, the first image link works. The second does not. In the Marked2 PDF, I see the following in place of the failed second image:
    ![]. For Ulysses, I follow your instructions. I am using the MultiMarkdown processor in Marked2. I have tried the Discount processor but it has not solved the problem. Thanks,

    Example in TextBundle

    Sorry, that syntax for specifying an image size is still incompatible with Marked. You need to use reference style links if you want to include size specs with the MultiMarkdown processor. Which is, unfortunately, probably not Ulysses compatible.

    Although if you set up MultiMarkdown v6 as a custom processor, it would likely solve the issue for you.
