Basic newbie question about opening docs in Marked

Brand new Marked user. I'm trying to figure out how to use Marked with a Byword file. In the Getting Started section of the Marked Help online site, I find the following statement:

"Marked works with any file on your local drive, including iCloud documents. Just drag the document from any text editor’s toolbar to Marked and it will render it as an HTML preview and start tracking changes, updating the preview as you write."

How would you drag a document from Byword to Marked? I have figured out that I can open the Byword file, then in Marked find the same file on my drive and open it, but the "drag" method sounds easier IF I can figure out how to do it!
