Issues Using with Ulysses

I recently opened a new sheet in my Inbox and dragged it to my Marked 2 icon in my dock. Almost immediately, I get notified that it has failed. A screenshot is attached. I have retried a number of times. My version is 13. I am currently determining if the rest of our heavily Markdown centric comapny will add this to our general build as a preview tool. Please let me know how to resolve this.

    Hi Rick,

    Sheets are not draggable from Ulysses (to anything expecting plain
    text). Please see
    for information on how Ulysses preview works.

    Wow! Wish the App Store page had stated. that Ulysses had limited
    support. That will cover almost 10% of how we use Ulysses and why we chose

    Hi Rick,

    Marked supports Ulysses to the fullest extent that Ulysses allows
    support. Once you've set Marked as the external viewer, ⌘6 return will
    update the preview instantly. If that's not workable for you, though,
    you can request a refund through the App Store.

    In light of the 2-star review, I do have to ask: if you were making a
    big business decision and $14 was a significant research price, did you
    not consider following the link on the app store
    to see that there was a free trial? Perhaps, at the very least, before
    declaring that "Brett Terpstra doesn't"?
