# I use markdown and pandoc and need to renewcommand iffalse/% with a couple tilde

I use Pandoc and Latex for my adacemic writing with Typora as my markdown editor. If I need to strikethrough text Typora uses ~~ double tildes. But Latex didn't recognize it as text which should be hided in PDF outputs. If i use \iffalse text \fi in Typora everything works.


As a newbie I'm not able to it in the corresponding latex file.

Thanks Andreas

• hm. calling pandoc panic is a nice error ;-) – Ulrike Fischer Mar 22 at 11:50

You can use the normal tildes in Markdown for strikethrough, and Pandoc will translate it into the LaTeX \sout command. For example:
pandoc -o test.pdf << EOT
