@bbedit Thanks. Not sure if it’s a problem with the PDF, but searching for “historical” with Preview doesn’t find anything. Works in PDFpen.
@bbedit_hints Does “Make backup before saving” without “Keep historical backups” just do a safe save? No backup file left afterward?
Yay for @FogBugz coming back online.
@FogBugz BTW, I seem to recall reading about bi-coastal data centers and rolling servers over to EC2. Did you decide not to do that?
@FogBugz Thanks for the update and your hard work. I’ve really come to depend on FogBugz so it’s strange not to have it now.
@stormchild I’m on the 200 MB plan and have always been under. Not sure what the recourse would be if I updated to iOS 6.
@nriley Agreed, but wasn’t Serlet in charge of your favorite release?
@ianbeck iCloud calendar and contact syncing is buggy, too. But less buggy than direct iTunes syncing these days.
@betalogue Yes, since 10.8 I’ve had lots of dual-display problems, especially waking from the screensaver. Plug and re-plug.
@mikeabdullah I was wondering why it wasn’t working with PDFs…
@petermaurer Isn’t it great how the folder may not exist, but your app doesn’t have permission to create it?
@betalogue Yeah, I see some strange behavior with restoration, including missing shadows and duplicate Dock icons.
@gte Yes, and if you have a Retina display, attach an external non-Retina one. There are some weird issues with multi-resolution setups.
Built-in options are a bit clunky. Lingon looks like an easy third-party way to run scripts periodically. Hope it survives sandboxcalypse.
@viticci That’s a good tip about Automator Calendar Alarm workflows. Although it looks like Calendar can’t repeat them very often.
@bmike Calendar no longer allows you to run scripts, so you need to open an app (and see it bounce in the Dock). Or am I missing something?
Thanks for all the Keyboard Maestro recommendations. I like it but was looking for something built-in.
@incanus77 Seems like that’s equivalent to writing a script that stays running. You’d need to find some other means of getting it going.
People used to use iCal until the AppleScript functionality was removed.
@incanus77 I’m looking for something for less technical users.
@fjdekermadec I’m not aware of an easy (built-in) way for users to edit the crontab, though…
What's the easiest way for a user to run an AppleScript periodically?
@drdrang Does iBooks Author have real LaTeX (with packages) or is it just a LaTeX syntax subset?
@ameaijou Great news; I’m looking forward to reading it.
@petermaurer Yeah, I’m not looking forward to the complaints from MAS customers who can’t run 10.8.
@wklj I’m sticking with Hibari, though I really wish it supported Tweet Marker.
@wklj Yes, I understand that. I’m fine with the way it works now. And I like the quick local timeline search.
@wklj I know that the Search tab is not doing a client-side search because it finds matches from users I don’t follow.
@wklj Oh, I see what you mean. I think Hibari searches using the server, but it doesn’t store the queries on the server like other clients.
@wklj My understanding is that the Hibari saved searches *are* server-side. Do you mean you want to do one-off server-side searches?
Also, after a few hours with Tweetbot for Mac, I have renewed appreciation for the subtle way in which Hibari indicates the selected tweet.
@wklj I like how Hibari saved searches are all in one list and are eligible for generating notifications.
Tweetbot is pretty nice, but it has no hotkey and I still prefer the way Hibari handles saved searches.
@the_loops Yes, my customer is only seeing it for one account, as well (the important one). :-(
@tofias Overall, I was very impressed with the Apple TV (WSJ Live). Good video quality, and the audio stayed in sync (unlike last time).
My Apple TV stuck at the spinner at start of debate; YouTube on the Mac worked for 2 minutes and then froze; Apple TV worked for remainder.
@optshiftk Have you observed that it’s still slow?
@mhenders I’m not seeing it myself, but it’s reproducible for a customer. (Interestingly, it only affects one IMAP account, not iCloud one.)
Anyone seen a bug where iOS 5 on an iPad marks e-mails as read on the server, even though the user hasn’t tapped on them?
@ianbeck Yeah, FoldingText looks interesting, but no demo.
@violasong Easy reading, huh?
@AngryDingo I tried making the folder in my Downloads folder.
Weird Aperture 3.4.1 sandboxing(?) bug: can’t create new folders from within Export dialog. (“This location is read-only”.)
@TomEck I’d like to, but MailMate isn’t sufficiently AppleScriptable.
@TomEck I was a big fan of iCab in the pre-WebKit days. Maybe it’s time for another look.
@simX I still prefer Safari, too, just frustrated that it’s gotten worse.
@stormchild That seems worth a try. Thanks! (Enable Debug menu via “defaults write com.apple.Safari IncludeInternalDebugMenu 1”.)
Safari 6’s buggy and a resource hog; Chrome 22 doesn’t feel like a Mac app; Firefox 16 doesn’t either and still missing AppleScript support.
Wishing @HibariApp supported Tweet Marker and Load More Tweets.
My dad hadn't synced his iPhone since September. He's on Wi-Fi syncing but turned off Wi-Fi since (he thinks) it drains his battery.
@craigtheatheist Hard to know for sure, but I bet I've had more full system "crashes" in 2012 than in all prior years of Mac OS X combined.
@craigtheatheist Seems to be a widespread issue for people since 10.7.x. You'd think this sort of thing would be a high priority.
@craigtheatheist Just Apple ones. It's happened with Message, Flurry, and Arabesque.
@c_had It's been happening on and off since Lion. Both 2010 MBP and Retina MBP.
@craigtheatheist A bunch of WindowServer errors and complaints that ScreenSaverEngine is using deprecated NSImage methods.
And I should have used osascript to tell NetNewsWire to quit so that it wouldn't lose all my read statuses.
@rentzsch That was my plan if it hadn't panicked. I'll try that first next time unless someone knows how to unlock the screen via ssh.
@craigtheatheist Killing the screensaver process just gave me a blue screen. And then shortly after it kernel panicked.
Another freeze at the screensaver. Could ssh in but to do what? Now trying just energy saver and screen lock, no screensaver.
@hyperjeff Did they seriously do that? I use Contacts
groups all the time on iOS 5.
@optshiftk Noticed this right away with BBEdit. Not sure why Apple did this without documenting it or providing a modern replacement.
Great—now it appears that the AESendMessage bug in 10.8.2 can cause an app that registers with Growl to hang at launch.
@siegel Good to know. Were you also seeing problems with the external display not waking up from sleep?
@panic Makes sense. I’m pleased to see that you were allowed to increase the version to the next 0.1.
@panic Is Transmit 4.2 sandboxed?
Tried using Numbers for managing some notes, rather than a Dropbox text editor. But iCloud keeps showing stale data and inventing conflicts.
@mmunz Safari has just been really buggy and slow since they split off that sandboxed process.
@danielpunkass Says a lot that they think a Web site beats the native apps. My conclusion as well. Good data, well presented.
@danielpunkass That one. Doesn’t seem to be fixed in 3.5.6 (5321).
@danielpunkass That’s the hope. (Now when are you going to fix my MarsEdit bug? :-)
@danielpunkass It’s true. If you don’t track down a small bug, how do you know it isn’t a symptom of something larger?
@danielpunkass Short-term, perhaps. But nothing frustrates like a buggy app. I will constantly be on the lookout for a replacement.
I wonder how much The Deck’s CPM is affected by its link coming up first when I Google for BBEdit. (Bing finds the normal product page.)
@simX NSWorkspace is not documented as being threadsafe, so I have lots of Launch Services wrapper methods. :-(
@markbaumann Exactly I already share my printer through an AirPort Express.
Thanks to everyone who suggested PDF converter apps.
@nathangaber Interesting. Not a PDF printer, but a multi-purpose viewer that can create PDFs?
@nathangaber Yeah. I’ve actually been using screenshots. But it’s silly to make a bitmap of just a portion of the view that I want to save.
@mattgrayson Glad it’s working for you. Seems like my printer should work via the AirPort Express, though. (Plus want remote PDF-printing.)
“we received a call from Apple Developer Relations telling us that we are not allowed to use AirPrint as a way to print documents to PDF” :(
@christian_beer That sounds like just want I need. Got the name? I found a few apps to do that, but Apple removed them from the App Store…
Printopia seems cool, but it requires my Mac, right? I’m more interested in printing (or printing to PDF) from iOS when I’m away from home.
@jsnell I love my e-ink Kindle. Aside from what you’ve mentioned, my main complaint is that it feels slow.
I’ve yet to find a printer that works with AirPrint. Why can’t iOS just print to a PDF file and e-mail it to me?
