i have been using multimarkdown for few days and i am writing document in order to export them in word (.doc).
When i try to do that, the images i have linked in the .mmd document do not get exported in the word document.
Is the software meant to do so? Is there a special setting to do it? Or is it just not included ?

    Sorry for the delay in responding -- holiday weekend got me behind.

    Direct conversion to Word is provided by Mac OS, and it's rather limited. (Basically MMD converts to HTML, and the OS converts HTML to Word)
    If you really need to work with Microsoft Word documents (and my apologies to you if you do -- it's a horrible format), the best way is to use MMD->OpenOffice, and then use LibreOffice to convert to Microsoft Office format.

    The extra step results in a much better result most of the time.

    Same thing if you are creating RTF.

    In either case, make sure your images are local, and not on the internet.

    Hope this helps!!
