i have just bought Marked 2 and installed it, but whenever I try to open a file or a project it crashes, and I get the following text in the crash report. I have pandocs installed and my text editor is emacs. Would be very grateful for help.

Crashed Thread: 4 Dispatch queue: Processing (QOS: UNSPECIFIED)

Exception Type: EXC_CRASH (SIGABRT)
Exception Codes: 0x0000000000000000, 0x0000000000000000

Application Specific Information:
*** Terminating app due to uncaught exception 'NSInternalInconsistencyException', reason: 'NSWindow drag regions should only be invalidated on the Main Thread!' terminating with uncaught exception of type NSException

Best regards,

    This crash (as odd as it seems from the error) is specific to Pandoc,
    apparently. At least its only ever come up with Pandoc...

    Can you show me the exact path and arguments you have set up for the
    custom processor?

    Also, direct or MAS version?

    Hi again,

    Thanks for your reply. I am sorry, but I do not comletely understand.
    Could you explain how I could _"show you the exact path and
    arguments...set up for the custom processor"_? Also, what is meant by a
    _"direct or MAS version"_? I am sorry but I am quiet new to this. I
    installed Emacs Starter Kit
    ( developed by Kieran Healy
    and followed the instructions given there and in this guide:

    All the best,

    Sorry for the confusion:

    1) Under Preferences->Advanced in the Custom processor section, what do
    the path and arguments fields contain?
    2) Did you buy your copy of Marked directly from me (Paddle) or through
    the Mac App Store?

    Okay, I see.

    1) Args in Preferences->Advanced contained a link to a bibfile that no longer exists. I deleted it an now I am able to open a file! : ) So, problem seemed to be solved. Path is set to: "/usr/local/bin/pandoc". What do these paths and args mean?

    2) I went here and pressed "Buy US$13.99".

    Glad to hear that it's working again for you.

    The paths and arguments are UNIX commands to run the processor. It
    requires a bit of command line knowledge (that's why they're relegated
    to "Advanced"). I'm sorry that Marked isn't able to do a better job of
    pointing out the errors in these cases, I'm working to improve that.
