Weird behaviour with footnotes

I can reliably reproduce this behaviour on my system:

  1. Create a file ~/Desktop/test.txt with following content (I have attached the file here too):

Hello[^1], Whirled!

[^1]: Hello, indeed.

  1. Open the File in Marked, e.g. by drag/drop. Notice the titlebar says "test.txt"

  2. Click the footnote (the superscript 1 after Hello). The titlebar now says "Desktop: test.txt".

  3. Click the footnote (the superscript 1 after Hello). The titlebar now says "test.txt: test.txt".

  4. Switch to Terminal, and create a new file ~/Desktop/blablabla.txt".

  5. Notice the Marked window is raised (if this option is activated in Setting/General/Window). Notice the titlebar now says "test.txt: blablabla.txt"

  6. In the Marked menu, select File/Open in Editor. Notice ~/Desktop/blablabla.txt is opened in your editor.

System: MacOS 13.0.1, Marked 2 2.6.22, BBEdit 14.6.1, after reboot.

What am I doing wrong?

    Yeah, that sounds my original attempt to follow external links between documents is being foiled by the internal footnote link. I'll have to dig into this as soon as I have time, thanks for the report.
