I was writing up some notes on photography technique (the topic isn't relevant, but it explains what you're looking at in the attachments), and there was a small, red, horizontal line next to one of the paragraphs. (See the first attachment.) I right clicked on it, and lo-and-behold an inspector panel appeared below the main window. (See the second attachment.) What is this stuff? Is it intended to be user-accessible? Seems like there are some potentially useful features here.

    The red line is the mark used to show where your last edit point was detected. It's excluded in any output. Turning on Scroll to Edit in preferences will scroll to that point on refresh automatically.

    The Inspector is intentional, I just enabled the default webkit inspector. Because Marked can watch and live reload CSS and HTML, the inspector completes the package to make a small web design toolkit.

    Ah, I figured as much. I haven’t done any webkit programming, so I wasn’t aware of that particular panel, but it’s very cool.

    Thanks, Brett, as usual for the rapid response and the great software.
