    Hi Steve,

    Where are the images located in relation to the Markdown file?

    Hi Brett,
    Pretty straightforward — the JPG images are in the same folder as the markdown file, which is presented as “/iCloud Drive/iA Writer” by Finder, but the true path is “/Users/stevebiro/Library/Mobile Documents/27N4MQEA55~pro~writer“ when you do the “Copy as Pathname” via option-right-click.

    Could you attach a snippet of the document containing the image references in Markdown format?

    Hi Brett,

    PDF print direct from iA Writer — not via Marked 2 (works OK)…

    PDF print via Marked 2 — note the trouble with the images…

    Markdown follows...

    # The Blade Itself
