Overview
Google Docs Add-on that lets you preview Markdown with Github styling.
⚠️⚠️⚠️ ATTENTION ⚠️⚠️⚠️

As a developer of Markdown Preview, I need to warn you that add-on WON'T WORK if you are logged in on multiple Google Accounts in your browser. This bug is related to Google's engine and only Google can fix it. 

You can read about the issue here https://issuetracker.google.com/issues/69270374.
By starring the issue, you make the issue a priority to Google's team.

The workaround is to log out of all Google Accounts except the one that is using the add-on. 

Thank you for your understanding.

🚀 FEATURES

The Add-on has an auto-refresh option that updates the preview as you type every X milliseconds. By default, it is set to 5000ms (5 seconds).
The option can be found in Add-ons > Markdown Preview > Settings

NOTE: If you have a slower machine, don't reduce this value!
It can cause high CPU usage. To disable auto-refresh, set the update interval to 0.

Markdown Preview has a "Refresh" button at the bottom of the sidebar that allows you to manually update the preview.
To keep the UI clean, the button is only visible when you hover over it with your mouse.


🤝 PERMISSIONS

Markdown preview needs following permissions to run:
  - Email (included by default)
  - Profile Info (included by default)
  - Read the content of opened file -> Read your Markdown
  - Display third party content -> Show sidebars and modals


❤️ THANK YOU

Issues and feature requests are welcome!

Cannot make the preview wider -- it is very narrow on the right side of screen.

Dear user, The preview window is fixed to 300px. Unfortunately, this is the limitation of Google's platform and we can't change it. Thank you for your understanding.

Works well. I have a few feature suggestions: 1. Parse [TOC] 2. Add borders to Tables 3. Preview via a link to markdown file, within google docs so preview can be copy & pasted into docs for sharing and editing 4. Go the other way, Docs to Markdown

Dear user, I appreciate your review and I am pleased to hear that my add-on serves you well. Could you please elaborate more on 1) & 3)? For example, how would you like 3) to be implemented in UI? Thank you.

No longer works, even with a simple test file such as: ``` # hi test1 ## h2 test2 ### h3 test3 ``` The "Markdown Preview" sidebar just shows a loading spinner forever.
