Suppressing brackets around footnotes

I was wondering if it was possible to make Marked2 display footnotes in text without the brackets, and to also remove the closing arrow from the text of the footnotes themselves.

An answer would be much appreciated.

Also, I'm sorry if this is really stupid / the answer really obvious: I'm really new to MMD and Marked.

Also: I couldn't find a pre-existing discussion on this precise topic. If there is one: Sorry again!

    It's been asked before, but Tender's search isn't great :).

    The brackets and other formatting are built into MultiMarkdown and can't
    be adjusted without recompiling the processor. The only option is to use
    an alternative processor through Marked's "Custom Processor" fields,
    which gets complex depending on your skill level on the command line.

    Thanks Brett,

    I recompiled MultiMarkdown, now everything is just the way I need it to be!

    Thanks for an awesome application!

    I'm having the same issue, but I'm afraid recompiling MMD is a bit beyond me. Would it be possible for you to share your custom processor?
