Users wishing to write notes using inline Markdown mark-up can add the 'Markdown' prototype from the built-in prototypes: amongst other things this sets $HTMLMarkdown set to true. This allows use of markdown-style mark-up in note $Text. The latter can then generate styled HTML to be seen in the text pane's Preview tab, whether or not also exported.
The Hints' section Preview containers
If no export template is defined for the note, the built-in default of ^text^ is used for selecting the content shown in the preview.
Tags embedded in the text such as ^value()^ are evaluated before being passed to Markdown.
For those with the Marked2 app, when a Markdown note in Tinderbox is selected or edited, it will automatically be sent to the Marked2 streaming preview window.
CommonMark—a contemporary variant of Markdown—is available as an alternative Markdown processor by setting the $HTMLPreviewCommand, or a local custom Markdown version can be involved:
CommonMark'. This is an internal pointer to the bundled copy of the newer and faster rendering fork of the original Markdown.
