Errors when generating MMD-Latex.

I get this error when generating MMD-Latex (generating plain MMD seems ok). How do I go about narrowing down the source?

-:79: parser error : internal error

-:79: parser error : Extra content at the end of the document

unable to parse -


p.s. Is there somewhere I will find guidance like “don’t use Scrivener formatting bold/italics/list”, or “it’s OK to use …”

I’m working through a binary tree search tracking down the text/characters causing my troubles.

Any chance MMD might display the text around the failure point?

Thanks - Sophie

That’s a LaTeX issue - not a MMD issue. Or more precisely, MMD displays whatever output your LaTeX program (pdflatex, xelatex, etc) displays. MMD is really just a series of shell scripts and pipes, after all.

Fair enough.

Right now, though, I am trying to import->MMD a largish body of text into Scrivener, and get

Nothing to import - The file is not a valid MultiMarkdown file.


This is actually entirely a Scrivener issue. For obvious reasons, MMD knows nothing about “importing” a MMD document. There’s no such thing. And this is entirely separate from exporting MMD into LaTeX.

Ok, and many thanks for the help and quick replies!

Best – Sophie
