I'm a huge Marked2 fan and supporter, having used it every day for multiple years. I think I've found a minor bug, or at least something that wasn't intuitive to me.

In the Processor section of the preferences is a checkbox to treat "#Text" is tag. Per the directions, I can hide/show that text in the Marked2 view by toggling Proofing->Show Comments.

But, irregardless of the Show Comments setting, the tag text is included in a PDF (paginated) output. I expected the output PDF to match the screen view.

Thanks for all you do.

    Ah, that's probably something I missed in the print CSS. Will get it
    fixed up. The next update is waiting on a bit of beta testing as it's a
    major overhaul, so the fix might not show up until that's ready!

    This is using a custom CSS theme, so perhaps the issue is mine after all.
    I will look into it.

    Thanks for pointing me in that direction.

    No, unless you're somehow overriding Marked's custom classes, there are
    CSS files that Marked loads for internal functions regardless of the
    custom CSS. 99.9% chance the issue is on my end :).

    I have the issue fixed for the beta. I think I'm going to make the beta
    of the new release public soon if you want to help test it out (and have
    your issue fixed early :)). Keep an eye on BrettTerpstra.com if you're
