Markdown import too clever for its own good

Postby AlanKearns on Thu Apr 21, 2022 9:20 am

I have a block of text that starts 'www.' It's not a URL at all, but Markdown import is adding a hyperlink to it, which obviously doesn't work. Because the source is being maintained in Markdown, not Flare, I don't have the opportunity to delete the hyperlink before madbuild builds output. What can I do to suppress this?

If anyone's interested, I replaced the first 'w' with w to trick it.

Hi Alan, you might try using pandoc to convert it into html before feeding it to Flare. I had better results and less clean up on my import.

Apparently enclosing it in a <span> works for HTML, but not PDF.
