Hi Brett,

Marked has really become such a common part of my workflow that I'm starting to get greedy and look for support in all the applications that I use. You've actually already covered all but one (the Scrivener support is particularly awesome): Eastgate's Tinderbox. This app works on the idea of lots of little notes that can then be displayed as a mind map, or outline, or tree map, etc. It is essentially just an XML file containing all the information about each note.

The developer has already discussed markdown and how to use it with the app, leading me to believe there are many users interested in this.

Further, one user put together a tutorial about how to use Marked with the output that Tinderbox makes. While this is useful to a certain point, it requires the somewhat tedious process of exporting prior to viewing the Marked preview. I'd love to see live Marked previews of Tinderbox files.

You can view Tinderbox files for free with the trial version of the app, so I can post a demo file if you're interested in checking it out.

    Yes, attach an example document and I'll look into it.

    looks like maybe my sample file didn't make it through moderation. here's a dropbox link:

    Kind of a late dog pile, but I'm also interested in the viability of Marked support for Tinderbox. I'm still sorting out my workflow with Tinderbox and how it meshes with my use of Scrivener and Multimarkdown Composer but like it's flexibility and simplicity. FWIW. Thanks!
