Live preview from Mindnode stopped working

I had a workflow I LOVED a few months ago:

  1. From Mindnode, choose File > Advanced > Open in Marked
  2. Every time I saved in Mindnode, the Marked preview would update

This is suddenly no longer working for me.

Thanks in advance for help!

    I did check to make sure Time Machine isn't running.

    Hi Jack,

    What version of MindNode, and what version of Marked?

    Hey Brett,

    Marked 2.5.17
    MindNode 2.5.7

    I tried with Mindnode 5.0.11 just in case, and I'm not seeing any change.

    As soon as I change the file type from "Package" to "Single File" in MindNode, Marked will display the file. However, it does not pick up any updates, even if I use Preview > Refresh.

    I've just tried again today (Marked Version 2.5.22 (957) / Mindnode 2.5.7 (76)).

    • preview from a package works fine, also picks up updates
    • preview from a single Mindnode file works, but doesn't pick up updates

    As packages are the preferred format for Mindnode, I think we can resolve this issue, but you might want to add a note to the readme to let people know preview from single files doesn't update.

    So glad this is working again, at least in part!! Love this feature.
