Hi,

the Number 1 reason I bought MMC for, was the ToC pane. It was just clean and uncluttered.
It is so great to have an overview of a document permananently "attached" to the window.
Seeing it replaced by a floating semitransparent window in version 2 seems like a step in the wrong direction.

I like the changes you made in the newer version, but for now, I am sticking to version 1, because it offers a cleaner experience.

Is there any chance to get the ToC pane back?

Thanks

Hans

    Hans,

    Sorry for the delayed response. Your message got sent to the spam bin, so I just discovered it.

    I will consider adding an option to use a pane for the ToC in a future update, but it's behind a list of other improvements. It's funny how polarizing the drawer/pane/HUD panel issue is --- everyone has their preference, and some people have quite strong preferences.

    Thank you for writing, and again -- apologies for the delay.

    Any possibility to actually make the TOC something that could be "published" into the actual working document, creating a literal TOC? I think the least-work default would be to publish the complete TOC, all headers. A user could delete levels that were too far in the weeds for their purposes. A thought...

    Thanks,

    There are several XSLT files for MultiMarkdown that can add a TOC to an HTML file based on the headings.
