Not working on network share files.

All documents i need to work on are based on the shared folder in a local server which is always mounted.
The folders are shared through the AFP protocol. Any app can without problem open the file from the finder.
But Marked don't, it show the spinner and Loading… message.
I haven't see any way to authorize a shared folder as I suspected that it could be a sandboxing problem. But I run the website Marked version (non mac appstore). The same file open just fine from the computer or even a usb key, it doesn't work only from the network shared folder.
This beahaviour doesn't feel right. Any app, even big ones, could open files from the shared folder, but here it doesn't open just a simple text files. At least, it should inform the user about it's incapacity ?
Am I missing something or is Marked incapable of opening file from network shared folders ?

Best regards

    Are you certain the share is mounted through AFP? I'm able to open files
    from an AFP share without any issue...

    Hi Brett,
    yes i am sure it's AFP. The serveur adress is afp://company._afpovertcp._tcp.local/SharedFolders/

    I Think I found the bug.
    The file use a YAML front matter. And it works telling Marked to treat as MMD meta but not if I ask ignore which was by default. The strange thing is that it works without fixing this pref on a local drive but fail from a shared folder on the network.
    Best regards.

    Can I see a test document that exhibits the issue?

    Here is the file.
    just the start of the file and without completed data. Hope you can reproduce and fix taht.
    Luckily, I just have to not let the option of ignoring YAML Frontmatter for having no issue.

    Oddly, I'm unable to reproduce the issue. I'll keep an eye on it, but
    glad to hear you have a workaround for now.

    I shorten the file too much. The one I send you works, this one more long doesn't work. As the front matter option make it work, I didn't suspect that the problem would be down in the file.
    So with this file, i got the problem. It doesn't display but neither from desktop or shared folder when set on ignore. I can't reproduce the version where it only works locally but not from shared folders.

    With the file, it's better.

    It seems to be caused by the empty "keywords" key in the YAML. I'm not
    quite sure why, really, but if I remove that line it seems to function
