Does MultiMarkDown supports math rendering like StackEdit?

Thank You.

    I'm not quite sure what you're asking.

    You asked about MultiMarkdown, but sent your message to the
    MultiMarkdown Composer site/address.

    MMD Composer supports MMD and all of its syntax/features. There is a
    demo for you to experiment with to see if it meets your needs before buying.

    MultiMarkdown itself supports math:

    As to whether it's the same as StackEdit, that depends on what they do
    and how you use it.

    So a code which works on StackEdit should work here, right?

    You're saying MultiMarkDown isn't only a MarkDown editor, it is a complete different flavor of MarkDown.

    MultiMarkdown is a superset of Markdown (and has been for almost 10 years).

    MultiMarkdown Composer is a text editor for MultiMarkdown, and also for

    Math is not part of Markdown.

    Math is part of MultiMarkdown.

    I can't speak for StackEdit.

    This is great.

    I saw you had a discount which I missed since I only have my Mac available now.
    Is there a chance to get the price of few hours ago?

    One more question,
    Can you support for Tab?

    I mean. like coders use it to align text I'd like to be able to do so in MarkDown editor.
    Or at least have an option to create invisible table (Not by CSS but by the MarkDown editor for a specific table).

    Thank You.

    There hasn't been a discount in a year or two. I don't currently have
    any discounts planned.

    Composer supports elastic tabstops:

    Check out the demo if you aren't sure it will meet your needs. (BTW --
    there is a bug in version 2.7 that disables "Typewriter mode" (keeping
    the current line in the middle of the screen). This is fixed for 2.7.1
    (to be released soon). To my knowledge the other features are working

    Regarding the tabs, I was talking about the output, not the the MMD code.
    I want words to be aligned at the output (PDF output).
    Think about the alignment with invisible table.

    Moreover, the Demo doesn't support Copy / Paste, so I can't test the math code (Why doesn't it work out of the box? Moreover, why doesn't it work with $$ like all other MD?).

    If you want that in output, then use a table. You would have to modify
    the CSS if you want the table to be invisible.

    Demo doesn't support copy/paste. You can use preferences to enable MathJax.

    Again - math is not part of "all other MD". Math is not part of
    Markdown, period. Things that are *like* Markdown, e.g. MultiMarkdown,
    can support Math. I can't help it if other developers came up with
    their own approach to math support and didn't follow my lead. That's
    the beauty of open source, they can do what they want. But they can't
    call it Markdown.

    But you can test math in MMD Composer Demo.
