Hi,

Just a quick question: in the latest release [here](https://github.com/fletcher/MultiMarkdown-5/releases), in the Drag_and_Drop.zip, there's no MMD2PDF.app. Is it intentional?

I am still using the original MMD2PDF.app and it works fine (with my slight modification about the path issue in OS X El Capitan).

    I stopped creating a MMD2PDF app, because too many people were confused by it. LaTeX is a complex suite of tools, and wrapping it up in a GUI that gets between the user and the feedback from the LaTeX utilities made it hard for users to understand why their documents didn't work (e.g. "Your program didn't work" instead of "My document doesn't work".)

    That said, there's really nothing special about it. It's just a wrapper around the mmd2pdf shell command, just like the other GUI apps.
