Setting to disable automatic table markdown formatting?

Hi Fletcher,

I'm really enjoying 3.0. Thanks for committing on developing such great software.

My question is whether there's a way to disable the automatic table markdown formatting when I use the following characters: "|",

Currently, I am using MultiMarkdown as a daily journaling app and I have a hotkey to have the date automatically typed as a header, i.e. "Week 23 | 2015.6.2 | 10:20:44"

Unfortunately, after hitting enter I get the following line: " ------ | ------ | ------ |"

Is there way to disable this? Ver. 2.x did not have this.

I sincerely appreciate your consideration and look forward to purchasing this app upon release!

    Glad you're enjoying v3 -- it's been interesting (and challenging!)
    getting some of the new code working correctly...

    v 2 did have this, it just didn't work properly. It only recognized
    tables when the pipe was the first character.

    Just disable the table formatting feature in the preferences if you
    don't want to use it.

    Hi Fletcher, 

    I’m wondering if there’s any news on the release of the v3?  I was using the beta version but now upon opening the beta, it says the beta has expired and to download a new version.  The download link on the site gives an XML error so I’m wondering how to continue using the beta of the upcoming release.
