Unable to use Marked with Bear

When I try to preview Bear's document with Marked I'm getting the following message:

The open file operation failed.

I'm then prompted to grant access to /private/var/folders/dv/_3s540yd6qg3rlyhr2wbnq0m0000gn/T/net.shinyfrog.bear/BearTemp.zXfTfL/F80C3C20-F0A5-4A2C-B98B-98215690619A folder. After I grant access to Marked the preview functionality works properly until I terminate Marked. Next time I will try to preview Bear doc with Marked I will have to repeat that process again.

Is there a way to fix this?

    Hi Brett,

    Have the Mac AppStore version of Marked 2. Would like the cross-grade to work with Bear as well.

    Hi Brett, same problem here~ I'd like to use marked2 to preview math equations in bear, they still do not support. "update permissions" works but I have to open marked2 first and click it manually every time 

    Brett, I'm having the same issue. Update Permissions works on my High Sierra macs, but on a per sessions basis. It doesn't stick and has to be repeated at times and always after a reboot.

    Could I swap my MAS copy for the crossgrade version? Thanks.
