been using for many years; never had a problem. upgraded to 2.6.22 the other day, thereupon app refuses to launch.
1. reverted to older version, same problem
2. checked quarantine status, no help
3. tried trashing app, but Hazel didn't do it's usual thing and offer to trash all associated files

4. checked system.log and found this:

Jan 26 12:40:35 deskART Service exited due to SIGPIPE | sent by Marked 2[3180]
Jan 26 12:41:44 deskART[1]: Coalition Cache Hit: app [3563]

Jan 26 12:41:45 deskART Service exited due to SIGPIPE | sent by Marked 2[3202]

can you help?

    Do you have a custom processor running?

    I think I did — started to install Pandoc this way, may not have finished. How do I undo that when I can't get it to launch?

    If that's what's causing the crash, it's happening because it's trying
    to open a document on launch (restoring something you had open). To open
    the app "fresh" without loading any documents, open terminal and run the

    open -F -a "Marked 2"

    Let me know if that at least gets you to a point where you can open
    Preferences and check on the custom processor.

    OK, that allowed me to re-launch the app.
    I'll fiddle with the custom processor later.
    Thanks so much for giving me your time, and so promptly at that.
