Bibtex support

   I've noticed that multimarkdown supports bibtex file by adding meta data specifying style and .bib file, and citation using [#citekey]. I tried this in Mark 2 and it didn't work. I searched the support forum and only found somebody use pandoc to do this. Do I really need to use pandoc if I want to use .bib file? Is there a way to do this using built-in multimarkdown support?
   I really like Marked 2, thanks for the work!

    I honestly have no clue about Bibtex support. I'll have to talk to
    Fletcher and see if this is something I need to build into my included
    MultiMarkdown processor.

    Thanks for the quick reply. It would be very useful for scientific notes writing. Since it is built-in to Fletcher's multimarkdown I expected it might not be difficult to do this in Marked 2 (or I didn't use it correctly). His Multimarkdown Composer 2 also has bibtex support but I prefer Marked 2's way that I can choose my editor.

    Thank you again.

    You can always use the multimarkdown binary as a custom processor, too,
    but I believe you'll run into issues if the .bib file and other
    requirements exist outside of the folder where the file is, just FYI.
