When i compile a document with Scrivener, Metadata like <$fullname> <$abbr_title> is rendered. When i preview with Marked 2 it is not, I only see the metadata-variables.
Is there a way to make marked resolve the info?

    I've never made use of this feature and didn't include it in the parser,
    but looking at the XML document for a project it looks easy enough to
    pick up and replace. I'll add that to the list for a future version.

    In the meantime, MultiMarkdown-style metadata replacements are
    supported. If the first page of your document starts with a block such

    fullname: Your Name

    at the very top, then you can use [%fullname] in the document to replace
    it with that value.
