New Temporary File

Quite often I just want just to quickly write a note, or a comment, or something like that; preview in Marked, copy&paste wherever its destination and forget. For now I am using a dedicated file, which is not bad, but a nuisance nonetheless.

"New Temporary File" would create a file in $TEMP, open an editor on it, and on close of the preview window remove the file.

    That's what clipboard preview does, essentially. Just write your Markdown, copy, flip to Marked and hit command shift v. File will disappear on close unless explicitly saved.

    Yes, but this workflow fails if, when previewing I see that I need to correct something. Either I have to repeat this, with a new Marked window, or invoke cmd-E, but then I must save...

    I'll take it under consideration.
