Hi all,

Does anyone know if and if so where Marked preferences are stored on disk, in a form that can be easily accessed remotely? I have a machine halfway around the world that I can only SSH into, on which I have preferences (in particular, concerning a big set of options to pass to my custom processor) I would like to access, so that I can duplicate them on my local machine. Any help appreciated!

    For the Mac App Store version, you should find the preference file
    (PLIST format) at:


    Where ~ is your user's home directory. Duplicating/syncing this file
    should replicate your preferences. I was unclear on whether you were
    trying to extract a specific preference or just sync them between two
    copies of Marked, though.
