In a markdown file I have a link such as this one:

BAMTECH Contacts{width=4in #fig:bamtechcontacts}

If I view the file within DEVONthink, it renders the PNG file that link points to. If I open the file in Marked 2 then it shows a placeholder, but not the image.

For documents I add to git, then I do a separate image folder, but for this personal notes that I may share to a couple people on the team when needed, I would render a PDF file to share.

Anyway, I have a workaround, but wanted to suggest the idea in case it happened to be trivial to implement.

    I've looked into it before but there's no way to resolve the reference in the DT URL outside of DT. It's a reference to its own database, not directly to any file or alias on disk.

    Thanks for the quick response. I appreciate it as I use Marked 2 nearly every day.
