This sounds like preference files are being corrupted. Have you run a repair in disk utility recently? I ask because I don't recall ever having this issue reported before, so I'm guessing there's probably an issue outside of Marked.
After the preference was lost yesterday, because I was busy, I only changed a few settings, namely General, Preview and Style, including adding a custom CSS. When I click on the Apps tab, I did not choose a text editor and just stopped there and went back to my work.
Looking at the Preferences now, everything is how they should be, including Apps, Proofing, Export and Advanced, i.e. the preferences have been restored.

I would definitely do a disk repair. Preferences are cached pretty
heavily by the system, so they could easily have been re-written to disk
from the cache at some point if the preference file had become

Checked disk and carried out a “full Onyx”, no problems identified and nothing to repair.
Been a Marked user for a number of years and the problem has only happened twice and both of those are quite recent, but can’t confirm if they both happened after “upgraded” to High Sierra or not, today’s one was.
I have carried out a full clean of everything cache related and “disk repair” related - I will see if it happens again from now.
It has happened to be twice again since the original report, both time the preferences were lost whilst Marked was open. Quitting and restarting Marked restored most of the preferences both times (basically everything apart from my custom CSS file).
May not be related and might be a different issue, but both times I was editing a document and exporting to a paginated PDF and the PDF created did not contain all the pages, it exported 13-15 pages of a 19 page document.
