MarkMyWords2 Beta 2

The second beta of MarkMyWords2 brings some improvements under the hood. There has been a major change in the way the preview is generated. The macOS security system severely restricts access to web content from apps, which makes the integration of external scripts, CSS files, etc. much more difficult. In the first beta of MarkMyWords2, only images, that were inserted into documents, were considered. With the changes in the Beta2 of MarkMyWords2, extended accessibility is now available.

If the current document is in a Quicksave folder, resources from the same Quicksave folder can be included in the document. As a simplified example, in a Quicksave folder there is the document "Document.txt" and the directories "Scripts" and "Styles" each with the corresponding content:


Then you can integrate to the Document "Document.md" the files "Text.js" and "Test.css" now easily:

<script src="Scripts/Test.js"></script>
<link href='Styles/Test.css' rel='stylesheet' type='text/css'>

The new system is made possible by the creation of a temporary preview file in the Quicksave folder, which is automatically removed after the document is closed.

The changes result in expanded possibilities to adapt the documents to your own wishes and should be of interest to experienced users.
