I recently upgraded to 2.5.31 (non-MAS) and I'm now getting an "ERROR: Custom processor is not executable. Please ensure that your user has permission to execute pandoc" popup when I try to use pandoc. This also happens with a custom script that I've used for quite a while.

I've hit the "Update Permissions" button without much luck and, at least as far as I can tell, I should have the appropriate permissions for pandoc. Would it be possible to downgrade to an older version?

    That did it. Thanks! I can't believe how quickly you took care of this.

    For what it's worth, it seemed to hang when I used the auto-updater. I had to download fresh from the website. No idea if that was a weird glitch on my end.

    Yep, I had the same issue. Short explanation is that a glitch in my
    build files accidentally turned on sandboxing for the direct version,
    which then caused issues with EVERYTHING. Hopefully not too many people
    grabbed that bad update before I fixed it, but I'm sure I'll be fielding
    a bunch of questions now :/.

    Sorry about that, but again, thanks for reporting it so quickly.
