To delete your preferences with the direct (non-MAS) version of Marked 2:
Quit Marked 2
Delete the file at ~/Library/Preferences/com.brettterpstra.marked2.plist (and any other files starting with com.brettterpstra.marked2). If you're not sure how to access this folder, open Finder and press ⌘⇧G, then paste "~/Library/Preferences" (without quotes) into the box.
Reboot the computer (this is important as OS X aggressively caches preferences and may just restore the deleted file without your knowledge.

Happy new year!
Thank you for the detailed instructions — very helpful!
Unfortunately it has not solved the issue with flashes. I’ve turned off the ’Scroll to first edit’ option, and this seems to decrease the number of flashes on screen updates. Can I change other options?

First, that machine _shouldn't_ be having any trouble. And no, DOM
repaints are how the screen renders in a web view, assuming decent code
in the page, flashes are usually only an issue if memory is low.
This is something I've noticed, especially with dark mode enabled on Mojave. If the Marked2 style has a white background then on a DOM repaint with dark mode enabled the entire window flashes black briefly. With light mode on the DOM repaint just redraws the text without changing the background color.

Ah, this indicates that it's actually part of the refresh. In the moment
before it begins the rendering it's showing the background of the window
itself. Marked does a full refresh when updating its content (for
various reasons) and I'm not sure that this flash is something I can
avoid. For the record, it doesn't seem to be an issue on any of the
machines I have available for testing, so I'm not exactly sure what
Does this happen more often with longer or shorter documents or any
other variables that might shed more light on the cause?
