So, how do I use Markdown with MarsEdit?

@cdevroe Took me a bit to work it out. Basically it handles it natively, assuming your blogging engine parses it.
Go to Preferences > Blogs > Editing and under Preview Defaults ensure that Markdown is selected in the Preview Text Filter dropdown…
When you preview Markdown works
@cdevroe I just set the editor to plain text, write in Markdown, and then under Preferences > Blogs > Editing set Preview Text Filter to Markdown. (This assumes that the target blog can accept Markdown and doesn’t need it converted to HTML on the way up.)
@cdevroe There is also an “Apply preview filter to content” setting under Preferences > Blogs > Publishing if you want to write in Markdown but have it convert to HTML. (I haven’t use this piece, but I think that’s how it works.)
@cdevroe set these and … edit and post.
@cdevroe Switch to plain text mode. It will parse both HTML and Markdown. (Does it do MultiMarkdown, @danielpunkass?)
@cdevroe @douglane Sorry for the extraneous post. And clearly forgetting the preference settings. Glad to hear you got it working.
@manton, I clicked on the conversation on cdevroe’s post and nothing showed up. Using the iOS app on 10.
