MMD title to Latex

When I compile my writings with Scrivener and MMD syntax in Latex my titles appear like this:

MMD: #####L'eau de mer#####

\ Subsubsection {L'eau de mer}
\ Label {l'eau de mer}

However, when compiling Latex in pdf, errors appear every time an apostrophe is in the \ label command.
Is there a way to automatically put a label without apostrophe, or to make sure that label is not taken into account when compiling in pdf?

The same problem appears with quotation marks and any other special signs.
I assume that \ label does not take these signs into account.
What should I do to stop having these errors when I compile MMD into Latex ?

Another question:
Scrivener with MMD syntax apparently compiles latex with the natbib package (quote appears with \ citep). However, I use Bliblatex (command \ cite), is it possible to set Scrivener and MMD parameters with Biblatex to have the \cite command?



Thank you.

    I'm not sure what version you're using, but you shouldn't get those results with MultiMarkdown. Whatever you're using is either not MMD, or is really old.

    v 4.7.1:

    \subsubsection{L'eau de mer}

    v 5.4:

    \subsubsection{L'eau de mer}

    v 6.1.0:

    \subsubsection{L'eau de mer }

    You should update your MMD to a newer version (I recommend v6, but a few users still need v5).

    As for citations, MMD uses ~\citep{} and \citet{}. You can modify MMD to do whatever you like, however -- that's the beauty of open source software! Or you can switch to using natbib -- it seemed to have a lot more flexibilty when I first looked at it.

    Hope this helps,
