Is there a way to print from Marked with word wrap enabled for words inside code blocks? Currently, I use the GitHub template 90% of the time.

    Do you have this option set?

    Thanks for pointing that out and yes I do (see screenshot). It looks like it doesn't work on GitHub. Also, I'm using Markdown in a unique way for note taking with Sublime Text.

    (blank line)

    For the GitHub preview, it merges the two code blocks and ignores the blank line (see attachment).

    Just for clarity, is it significant that you have 4 backticks at the end
    of the first block, or just an error in typing it out here?

    So the "allow themes to wrap" option only offers the option to the theme. The GitHub theme does not wrap code by default (though it does in export). If you want to force wrapping in the preview, you can use the Preferences->Style->Additional CSS box to add:

    .github #wrapper pre {
      word-break: break-word;
      white-space: pre-line;
      margin: 10px 0;

    I also included a margin in there to give you the space between blocks I think you're looking for.

    Thanks for taking the time to help me with this minor request. I'm not using four backticks in the code block example. Only three. I edited that post, so it may had a typo.

    Where are your CSS Themes in the Library? I can't find them. I want to copy the GitHub theme and make a custom one with the code you provided.
