I'm still working on the output options for CriticMarkup. I'd like to have whatever tab is currently selected determine the output, and yes, if the Markup tab is showing I'd like the export to include all of the niceties. HTML export will include rollovers for comments, etc. I should have this in an update soon.
My eventual goal is to use mmd files internally and export to a
client-friendly format (which is MS Word, for better or worse (it's
for worse)) when I send a document off. I do need to be able to
include comments in my files. Right now, Marked2 is including the
text of the "MARKUP / ORIGINAL / EDITED" controls in the exported
Word file, which can't be right. It also omits comment text and
There's also a difference of approach between Critic Markup
comments and Word comments: CM comments are inserted at a point in
the file; Word comments are attached to a range of text. It might
be possible to export to the Word approach when observing a
highlight + comment combination

Sorry, I let this one slip. I just took an hour and rewrote the
whole CriticMarkup handler in all of the export functions, should
be much more satisfactory now. Also includes a dropdown that lets
you choose which version to output (markup, original, edited) with
persistent storage of the preference.
Should be out soon, need to get the rest of these fixes out,
I've run into an issue regarding this… When exporting CriticMarkup to a PDF, the comment marks appear, but the comment text doesn't seem to exist (opening the PDF in Preview and showing all notes/highlights in the side panel results in an empty panel). Additions, deletions, substitutions, and highlights are all exported, but comments seem to get lost. Any reason for this on my end? I'm running Marked 2.5.6 on macOS 10.12.0.

Marked PDF output is essentially a Print-to-PDF of the rendered output.
Adding legitimate annotations to that isn't possible. It might be
feasible to have them display inline, but clickable comments aren't
Just had a thought regarding this: IS there a way to toggle comment export in PDF the way you toggle printed URLs for PDF export? That might be the easiest way to work something like that. At the moment, I've created a preprocessor for a pandoc/LaTeX workflow to get this working… but I'd prefer to work through it in Marked (despite my odd demands, I find myself bending over backward to get them to work through Marked because it's such a nice app!).
