Disable HTML comments before and after file transclusion

If this is covered elsewhere on the forum, I apologize for not finding it. I may not be searching the right thing.

Is it possible to disable the comments that are added when rendering to HTML with MMD file transclusion? The CMS that I'm using (Blackboard) is adding empty paragraphs each time it sees back-to-back comment lines, such as

<!-- end include [/Users/david/Dropbox/WSU Theory Curriculum/inc/attendance.md] -->  
<!-- include [/Users/david/Dropbox/WSU Theory Curriculum/inc/grade-scale.md]{/Users/david/Dropbox/WSU Theory Curriculum/inc/grade-scale.md} -->

    Those pre and code tags don't show up in the export. There's something weird with the Markdown renderer here on the forum (either that, or I am not formatting my code block correctly).

    Yep, I've fixed it for the next update.

    Excellent, thanks! Also, if it matters, I have a license, but I'm using the Setapp version.
