Multiple citations eliminating commas

In older versions of mmd, [#guy,og] formats to ~\citep{guy,og} but now it goes to ~\citep{guyog}. This means that it passes two citations on to one and breaks the references.

Is there a new way to pass multiple citations in a row on? Was this change intentional? I can't find where it's documented, but the change seems to be sometime between mmd3 and 6 lol (sorry I can't be more exact).

Like when I export from byword it works fine but if I run it through mmd2tex it does this. I assume it's due to a version difference and I should just get onside with the new phrasing, but I can't find it.

    I figured out how to get old versions and the difference happens between 5.4 and latest version.

    Sorry for the delay.

    The intent is that [#foo] is a single reference, because separating two by a comma doesn't have specific meaning outside of LaTeX. You could have sequential citations by entering them sequentially -- [#foo][#bar]

    Alternatively, you could specify exactly what you want in LaTeX if that is your intended output format (foo `\~citep{guy, og}`{=latex})

    Thank you. It'll be good to be able to do that in mmd6.

    I'm a big fan of your project by the way. What you did with the latex templates is very cool and once one understands it is such a slick way to write nice pdfs.

    I made a script for it even so I don't have to go to the command line or put in the LaTeX inputs or title: link
