If the first line of a markdown document is an inline link it is not rendered as such in the preview window.

If the first line is a reference link then it does render properly.

    It also will render as a link if the first line is blank.

    Thanks for writing in.

    It's just a hiccup in the preview related to how it handles scrolling synchronization -- type something at the end of the document to reset the preview. The document itself is correct, as is HTML that you copy/export.
