After updating to 10.12.3 - two different problems with open:

1. In app File > Open menu seems to silently crash
2. Using Finder "Open With" works - but opens two copies of doc

    I'm running 10.12.3 and not seeing this behavior in either case. I have,
    however, had one other report of the double-open behavior. I am, at this
    point, not even sure what questions to ask to track the bug down. Any
    other info you can offer that might be relevant?

    Its quite odd - I’m not really sure where to look either - but it was
    working before I upgraded AFAIK.

    The double open only seems to occur when my “” text file is on my
    Desktop. Opening with Finder from another directory correctly opens a
    single copy.

    File > Open menu always seems to crash regardless of file location.

    I tried to remove and re-install - but same behavior.

    could you open Help->Report an issue and copy the config rundown it
    provides into this thread?

    Replicated your setup and am still not seeing any issue. Would it be
    possible to have you delete your preferences and see if it makes a
    difference? They'd be located in
    and you can back them up by moving the file to your Desktop (or anywhere
    else) if you'd like. Be sure to quit Marked first, and then to ensure
    the cache clears, reboot before starting Marked back up. If you can do
    that, let me know if it helps.

    For anyone else visiting this topic, a solution was offered in this repeat of the same issue. The user apparently was able to fix the issue by executing (in Terminal):

    /System/Library/Frameworks/CoreServices.framework/Versions/A/Frameworks/LaunchServices.framework/Versions/A/Support/lsregister -kill -seed

    I'd be curious if anyone else trying this could verify.
