Do we get to guess? Or is there a list somewhere? :)

What happened to the command-line operation? Was it ever implemented?

Once in full screen view, how to get out? The usual ESC does not work?

What controls the toolbar at the very top? Sometimes when I open a file it has: MARKUP ORIGINAL EDITED at the top, but these don't seem to do anything when I click on them. Other times there's a search box, which I would rather wasn't there.

    The CLI was ditched a long time ago. Most of what Marked does requires a UI, and the CLI wouldn't have made it through the App Store. Now that Marked 2 is outside of the store, it might come back, but all it ever really did was the equivalent of `open -a Marked document.md`.

    Ctrl-Cmd-F is the standard shortcut for fullscreen, and works with Marked. I hate the escape key taking me out of fullscreen. Drives me crazy in Mail when I just want to get out of the search field. You can also use the toolbar icon, of course.

    WTF. The MARKUP ORIGINAL EDITED is for CriticMarkup, which should be disabled unless you've turned it on in preferences. Are you seeing it anyway? And the search bar comes up with Command-F and forward slash (/). It goes away if it's focused and you hit escape, or if you hit command-f again. Are you accidentally triggering that?

    All makes perfect sense. Need to document these? Are you writing all of
    your own documentation, too?

    The app is a small miracle. I love it.

    I use it with MacVim to do screenwriting and novel writing. The file
    watching thing is really something. I don't think anybody else's
    view/converter can do that.
