    I'm not seeing this happen locally, but I'm testing with the Paddle
    version, not the Setapp version. I'll have to reconfigure to test that.

    Can you let me know what happens if you run `open
    'x-marked://open/[~/path/to/]'` instead?

    Also, when you say `--args` do you literally mean `--args` or are there
    other arguments you're sending to the open command?

    Hi Brett,

    Running open 'x-marked://open/path/to/' only opened the app, not
    the document. However, when I removed the '--args' option and simply ran open
    -a Marked it actually worked. Weird, because I used to have to
    pass the arguments for Marked via --args.

    But it's working. Thank you.

    Hi Brett,

    Yes, the help of the open command indicates that --args is how you pass
    arguments to the target application. But it doesn't seem to work that way

    --args is a generic indicator for "arguments", meaning it's where you would put actual flags for the command if you need them. If you don't need any additional arguments, just leave that part blank.
