I use markdown-mode to edit markdown, but it's missing one very useful feature. Whenever I press M-a (backward-sentence) or M-e (forward-sentence) it takes me to the start or end of the paragraph, respectively. I want it to send me to start/end of the sentence (to the nearest period, question mark, etc).

Is there way to get markdown-mode to properly go to the start or end of the sentence?

You're probably using single space sentences, which is fine, but you need to tell Emacs about it.

(setq sentence-end-double-space nil)
