I love to use MMD format and love to use comment in Scrivener. Marked 2 can make it easy to preview even form Scrivener. That is the bast part. But when I wrote, many times I like to leave comments even in the final draft to mark some ideas or relevant to this part of story. That is how to use Scrivener as useful as possible. On the other way, when I used Scrivener's comment that part of highlighted text with comment can not preview on Marked or not properly. That text they did not appeared on HTML source view too. It just disappeared. I did not want comments to preview on Marked. I commented for the future use on Scrivener. So I want to ask some questions about this. Does Marked have some setting to work around this issue? Or if it does not have the work around. Can you fix this in the future update?

    Could you attach a Scrivener document containing an example? It just needs to be one page with text and a comment. I think the problem may have to do with the non-latin characters, but having an example document will help track it down.

    This appears to be an issue Marked has with reading non-latin characters
    when processing Scrivener documents. If I add comments to your document
    in English, they're properly recognized and you can turn them on and off
    with Proofing->Show Comments. Something is broken, probably with
    character encoding. I do not have an immediate solution for you, I'll
    need to dissect the Scrivener document and run tests on it. This will
    take some time.

    For the time being, to work around, I decided to make a comment in english. At frist glance it works find. But when I considered it closely. I found that It show only the comments. After I tick off Show Comments, the text—that attached with comments— still disappears. What should I do to fix this?

    I think I misunderstood how comments work in Scrivener (I don't use it
    much personally, I've just tried to make Marked usable for people who do
    write in it). I currently remove the text that the comment is attached
    to and replace it with just the comment contents. I can see that it
    would make more sense to include the commented text, and append the
    comment itself after that text in the preview. I will have to do some
    work to make that happen. In the meantime, the only solution is to just
    use placeholder text for the comment in the document.

    I have found the source of the original issue you reported and have been
    able to correct it. However, in the process I ran into an unrelated bug
    that is preventing me from being able to release an update at this time.
    It's a difficult bug, so I'm not sure how long it will take to solve,
    and I won't be able to release _any_ updates until it's resolved. Before
    the next update, though, I will also revise how comments are handled to
    avoid removing the attached text from the document.

    Great to hear that you will fix my issues in the next update.
    In the time being, beside form comment in english, to cope with the comment for better preview in Marked2 I made space after text that I wanted to take a comment and removed comment to that space. Because comment will repace the text in Marked2, so it has worked as expect.
    Finally, It is better if Marked2 can choose the document in manuscript to preview. Because this time I started the large project. I also found that it is uncomfortable to always move the final draft out of the manuscript and move back when I want to make a minor revise.

    Thank for your concern.
