// Please enter a detailed description of the issue // Description of the issue:

When using Marked2 to do a live preview of a Bear note, sometimes the parsing/interpretation goes wrong, which can be solved by adding an extra newline after the paragraph or line before the point where things go wrong.

// Please enter a list of steps required to reproduce the issue // Steps to reproduce:

  1. Type a piece of text with at least two headings in it (heading, text, heading, text)
  2. Make sure there are NO additional newlines after the heading and the body parts.
  3. In markdown:
    # heading body text….
    # next heading body text.
  4. The second heading shows up exactly as typed (hash space heading text) instead of an actual heading.
  5. Insert an additional newline after each body text part and the problem goes away.

// If applicable please attach a sample document that causes the issue for you.

// Configuration (do not edit) Marked 2 1027 (Mac App Store)

    You're using the MultiMarkdown processor which requires newlines before headings. Quite a few processors do, really, so the universal solution is to always include a newline before a header.
