my markdown documents are full of tags throughout each document. It would be great to have an option to exclude tags from the printout. Let me know if I overlooked something.

    Please define "tags." I assume you mean hashtags?

    Hi Brett,

    ah, yes. Like #sound #history #ambient #flux

    I often have a tag after each paragraph.

    I'll take this under consideration. Marked's support of tag highlighting is really just a convenience for Bear users, but it would be relatively easy to hide them, at least from PDF/Print export. My top priority right now is fixing PDF export on Big Sur, so this may have to wait a bit.

    In the meantime, you can do it yourself by using Preferences->Style->Additional CSS. Click the "Edit CSS" button and paste this into the popup window:

    @media print {
      #wrapper .mkstyledtag { display: none!important; }

    Assuming you have #tags highlighted under Preferences->Processor->#Text is tag, this will hide the highlighted tags when printing or exporting as PDF.

    Cool, thanks - totally works for me!

    I could imagine lots of Markdown fans could use this, too, but then
    maybe not everybody has tons of tags dispersed between their paragraphs.
