Marked displaying blank window

I use Marked all the time to view articles I write in Markdown, and then copy the HTML. Today, I've got an article that Marked can't display; when I drag the file icon onto Marked's icon, I get a spinning gear for a few seconds, then just a blank window. I've never seen this before.

There's nothing special about the article. Any ideas? I downloaded a new copy of the app, and that didn't fix it. This is a direct purchase version.

It's not a theme issue; I tried them all.

    Are you using CriticMarkup at all?

    I don't know what CriticMarkup is; where would that be set?

    Under Preferences->Proofing, see if "Enable CriticMarkup..." is checked in the top 3 options. If something in your document is triggering the automatic CriticMarkup detection, you may be running into a bug I'm working on right now.

    If that's not the case, could you share the document that's coming up blank for testing?

    No, that's not enabled.

    If I send you the file by email, is it publicly accessible in the forum?
