Marked 2 freezes after launch

I'm running Marked 2 2.5.18. After downloading it, I successfully tried it with BBEdit, NVAlt and, after learning of the specific bundle, with TexMate. But on the next session, TexMate asked for the installation of Redcarpet Pigment (screen capture 1) and Marked 2 just froze. From that moment on, every time Marked 2 starts, I only get what you could see on screen capture 2.
Any idea on how to solve it?

    I'm not seeing any screen captures attached here, but I would recommend opening Terminal and running open -F -o "Marked 2" to make sure there's not a particular file that's causing a hang when it tries to re-open the last session.

    Thanks for your quick answer.
    I’m sending both screen captures and asking for help with Terminal command. What is the meaning of “-o” after “open fresh”?

    Apologies, that -o should have been -a ("with application").

    Marked 2 works fine and I could start it from both BBEdit and NVAlt. Now, I need to identify why TexMate doesn’t display .md files.

    Thanks for your support

    Which TextMate bundle exactly are you using to launch Marked?

    The Marked 2 bundle opens fine in Marked 2 for me. The output you show is from the internal Markdown Preview command, which has nothing to do with Marked. Is there just some confusion about which commands are from the bundle, or am I misunderstanding the question?

    To get the internal preview working, you'll need to install the requested packages with gem install.
