I am wanting to use Marked with Ulysses. I drag the file from Ulysses onto the Marked icon in the dock and the preview is displayed but within a minute it disappears and there is an error message that it appears to have been deleted. Screen captures of the original preview and the error message are attached.

    Dragging a file from the file list to Marked will work for files within
    "External Folders." Internal Ulysses documents are not stored on disk in
    a way that Marked can read, and the preview only shows up temporarily
    because when dragging out Ulysses creates a temporary preview that is
    overwritten after changes.

    To preview Ulysses sheets in Marked, use the Quick Preview (⌘6).
    Select "Text" as the preview type from the dropdown at the top, set the
    format to "Textbundle", and then use the dropdown on the right side of
    the button at the bottom to choose Marked 2. Once these are set, typing
    ⌘6 and pressing return will open/update the preview in Marked. This
    will have to be done manually any time you want to update the preview.
