// Please enter a detailed description of the issue // Description of the issue:

Marked 2 doesn't save any preferences.
I modified the items in Preferences, but there're not saved.
And Quick overview(welcome window) shows every time at launch, even though I unchecked "Show this windows in the future".

I reinstall Marked 2 in App store, but have the same issue.
I checked ~/Library/Preferences directory, but cannot find any plist of Marked2.

    The preference file for the Mac App Store version is located in

    It does sound like you either have a corrupted preferences file, or some
    wider issue on your disk. Assuming it's only Marked that's giving you
    issues, I would suggest just deleting the entire folder at
    ~/Library/Containers/com.brettterpstra.marked2. Next time you launch it
    will build all new files there.

    Let me know if that helps.

    Thanks for your reply.

    I have followed you mentioned.
    I have revoved all folders at ~/Library/Containers/com.brettterpstra.marked2
    Then I launch this app, but I have same issue.
    I installed it at App Store again, but things have not changed.
    And the preference file isn't created in ~/Library/Containers/com.brettterpstra.marked2/Data/Library/Preferences/

    Could you help me further?

    This is a guess, but it sounds like there may be an issue with your hard
    drive. Try opening Disk Utility and doing a first aid on the boot drive.
