Printing {==highlight==}


I am struggling to print or generate HTML preview for criticmarkup in multimarkdown. I would have thought that {==highlight==} would have been converted to the HTML5 <mark> tag but this does not seem to be the case.

My css for <mark> when I include <mark>in the draft works so I presume I am missing something really simple. Any thoughts anyone?


Check Settings > Miscellaneous : Markdown Options.

  1. Ensure that you have Multimarkdown selected as the Markdown processor.
  2. Ensure that you have the critic markup enabled.

Thanks. Not sure how I missed the critic markup flag

Actually I can’t get {==highlight==} to work on the Print action (it works on HTML Preview though).

Other criticmarkup does work see image attached:


{-- deleted--}

{++ added++}


As a quick workaround, from the preview, use the share sheet to print.

Sorry I should say that this error is on OSX - seems to work on iOS on my iphone, but I don’t use my phone for my general workflow

EDIT: I am on v21.0 BTW

Printouts via the web view on Mac do not print background colors. You would work around with different CSS for your mark element, something like:

mark {
  color: orange;
  border: 2px solid yellow;

Which would come out:
