Problem with TextWrangler

I can't seem to get Marked to generate previews (or even recognize) file icons dropped from TextWrangler. I tried looking online to see if anyone else has had this problem but did not find anything.

Any thoughts or suggestions on how to address this?

Thanks in advance.

    What extension do you have on your file? The current version of Marked requires an extension and that it be one of the known Markdown or Textile extensions (md, mkdn, mdown, txt, textile, etc.). Let me know if that's the issue or if something else might be going on.

    Brett, thanks for your prompt response. As it turns out, while I was working with a text file, I did not have the extension appended to the file name. Once I did that, all was well.

    Just FYI, the next version of Marked (1.3) will have the ability to open any kind of text file, with any extension (or none at all). It should be entering into initial beta testing this week and be available soon.
