Installation & Use

Requires Eclipse Photon & JDK 1.8+.

Install from the Certiv Tools update site:

Preferences ---

  • WindowCertiv ToolsFluentMark

Pandoc converter ---

  • Install Pandoc. The pandoc executable can then be selected from the local filesystem on the Pandoc Converter preference page.

PDF export ---

  • Both Pandoc and a LaTeX processor must be installed. Pandoc recommends MikTeX.

DOT graphics ---

  • Install Graphviz. The dot executable can then be selected on the Converter preference page.

UML diagrams ---

  • The basic PlantUml jar is built-in. Diagrams other than sequence diagrams require DOT graphics. If Graphviz is installed in a non-default directory, set the GRAPHVIZ_DOT environment variable to the actual installation directory.

BlackFriday converter ---

  • Install the customized blackfriday-tool from GitHub. A Windows 64-bit compiled executable is available for download: The blackfriday-tool executable can then be selected on the BlackFriday Converter preference page.

In-line Math uses single $ open/close delimiters. Can be embedded in other markdown features.

The opening $ must have a non-space character immediately right. The closing $ must have a non-space character immediately left and must be followed immediately by a non-digit.

Math blocks are delimited using double $ (i.e., $$) marks at the left margin. The open delimiter must follow a blank line and the close delimiter must lead a blank line.

Table Editor

Double-click on a table to open the table editor. While in the editor, double-click a cell to edit text. Tab and arrow keys will navigate between cells. Return to end cell editing.
