In practice, it is only useful if you, like me, like to work with a limited set of colors since they need to be added to the theme used when editing themes...

Thanks, I’ll check it out. :)

Yeah, out of the box Markdown does get highlighting, some themes work better than others. I’m trying to get granular control over the markdown highlighting so I can control all of the Atx-style headings (#, ##, ###, ####, #####, ######), bold, italic, and lists. I’ve been looking online but can’t find much info on how to target these things in a theme, especially the headings. In larger files I’d like to have a theme where I can tab indent headings and the content after them so it’s easier to follow.

The themes I find typically just have this, which controls all headings:

	name = 'Heading';
	scope = 'markup.heading, punctuation.definition.heading.markdown';
