Reading MD "high light" tags in Marked 2

FoldingText use the braces and equal signs to create yellow highlighted text, e.g., {==text to highlight==}. Marked 2 seems to display this fine when viewing a FoldingText file. However, when I do the same thing with an *.MD file, I get anomalies, like entire lines of text being truncated or omitted. However, if I use the tags in a *.TXT file, Marked 2 seems to display correctly. Has anyone else seen this? Any experience in getting the highlight tags to render properly in Marked 2? Is there something problematic with the {== ==} tag and the *.MD text file extension? Thanks in advance. Tom

    Your syntax is CriticMarkup syntax. If you have CM enabled in
    preferences, it will render as a comment with a highlight. If not, it
    should come out just the way it started, with the brackets intact. If
    you want to do something else with it, you'll need a custom

    Brett, I have CriticMarkup enabled in the proofing tab. Is there another possibility? Thanks for your time and attention. Tom

    You know, I'm not able to replicate it now. The file I was futzing around with is rendering correctly now. Maybe it was user error, i.e., I did the tags wrong. Anyway, thank you for your help. Tom
