Exporting LaTex?

Please forgive me if I've missed this feature. But I don't see any support for exporting LaTeX from Marked. Fletcher Penny made this an command line option for multimarkdown and (I assume) that implementing it wouldn't be hard using his scripts.

By the way, this application is *extremely* useful. I've been using emacs for years and years and having this previewer is indispensable. Much obliged.

    I too would like to be able to export LaTeX... It would seem possible via some sort of scripting option from inside Marked (1-2?)

    Or by calling pandoc?

    It's not really possible. The custom processor must output HTML, it's not designed as an export processor. There would have to be either an export plugin option or I'd have to add LaTeX as an output option in the export panel (which I would consider doing). I'll have to do some research and thinking.

    By the way- a little confused here. If you can Export the marked up text as RTF and DOC it seems to me that it is a sort of export processor already?

    That's what I'm saying. There's no _custom_ export plugin. I'd have to add it to the export options, or add another custom processor for export.

    Aha! OK. I see.

    I'm using MultiMarkdown to teach about markup languages to my science writing students, basically using it as a slightly gentler introduction to LaTeX. Wanted to be able to say "and hooray! you can just dump this markup out to another markup! Tada!!!

    I'd love an export to latex option as well.
    Thanks for making this app.

    Pandoc will do it.
