@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.

via Hibari in reply to bbedit

@bbedit_hints Does “Make backup before saving” without “Keep historical backups” just do a safe save? No backup file left afterward?

via Hibari in reply to bbedit_hints

Yay for @FogBugz coming back online.

via Hibari in reply to FogBugz

@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?

via Hibari in reply to FogBugz

@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.

via Hibari in reply to FogBugz

@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.

via Hibari in reply to stormchild

@nriley Agreed, but wasn’t Serlet in charge of your favorite release?

via Hibari in reply to nriley

@ianbeck iCloud calendar and contact syncing is buggy, too. But less buggy than direct iTunes syncing these days.

via Hibari in reply to ianbeck

@betalogue Yes, since 10.8 I’ve had lots of dual-display problems, especially waking from the screensaver. Plug and re-plug.

via Hibari in reply to betalogue

@mikeabdullah I was wondering why it wasn’t working with PDFs…

via Hibari in reply to mikeabdullah

@petermaurer @mmunz Hmm, maybe that’s been fixed. It didn’t work when I first tried it.

via Hibari in reply to petermaurer

@petermaurer Isn’t it great how the folder may not exist, but your app doesn’t have permission to create it?

via Hibari in reply to petermaurer

@betalogue Yeah, I see some strange behavior with restoration, including missing shadows and duplicate Dock icons.

via Hibari in reply to betalogue

@gte Yes, and if you have a Retina display, attach an external non-Retina one. There are some weird issues with multi-resolution setups.

via Hibari in reply to gte

Built-in options are a bit clunky. Lingon looks like an easy third-party way to run scripts periodically. Hope it survives sandboxcalypse.

via Hibari

@viticci That’s a good tip about Automator Calendar Alarm workflows. Although it looks like Calendar can’t repeat them very often.

via Hibari in reply to viticci

@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?

via Hibari in reply to bmike

Thanks for all the Keyboard Maestro recommendations. I like it but was looking for something built-in.

via Hibari

@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.

via Hibari in reply to incanus77

@incanus77 @frr149 The AppleScript alert seems to be gone. I guess you could use “Open File” and give it a script saved as an application.

via Hibari in reply to incanus77

People used to use iCal until the AppleScript functionality was removed.

via Hibari

@incanus77 I’m looking for something for less technical users.

via Hibari in reply to incanus77

@fjdekermadec I’m not aware of an easy (built-in) way for users to edit the crontab, though…

via Hibari in reply to fjdekermadec

What's the easiest way for a user to run an AppleScript periodically?

via Hibari

@drdrang Does iBooks Author have real LaTeX (with packages) or is it just a LaTeX syntax subset?

via Hibari in reply to drdrang

@rentzsch @mikeabdullah BusyCal 1 used its own database plus Sync Services, which 2.0 doesn’t.

via Hibari in reply to rentzsch

@ameaijou Great news; I’m looking forward to reading it.

via Hibari in reply to ameaijou

@petermaurer Yeah, I’m not looking forward to the complaints from MAS customers who can’t run 10.8.

via Hibari in reply to petermaurer

@wklj I’m sticking with Hibari, though I really wish it supported Tweet Marker.

via Hibari in reply to wklj

@wklj Yes, I understand that. I’m fine with the way it works now. And I like the quick local timeline search.

via Hibari in reply to wklj

@wklj I know that the Search tab is not doing a client-side search because it finds matches from users I don’t follow.

via Hibari in reply to wklj

@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.

via Hibari in reply to wklj

@wklj My understanding is that the Hibari saved searches *are* server-side. Do you mean you want to do one-off server-side searches?

via Hibari in reply to wklj

Also, after a few hours with Tweetbot for Mac, I have renewed appreciation for the subtle way in which Hibari indicates the selected tweet.

via Hibari

@wklj I like how Hibari saved searches are all in one list and are eligible for generating notifications.

via Hibari in reply to wklj

Tweetbot is pretty nice, but it has no hotkey and I still prefer the way Hibari handles saved searches.

via Hibari

@betalogue I think you’re seeing this bug: http://t.co/gO48tuBY

via Hibari

@the_loops Yes, my customer is only seeing it for one account, as well (the important one). :-(

via Hibari in reply to the_loops

@tofias Overall, I was very impressed with the Apple TV (WSJ Live). Good video quality, and the audio stayed in sync (unlike last time).

via Hibari in reply to tofias

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.

via Hibari

@optshiftk Have you observed that it’s still slow?

via Hibari in reply to optshiftk

@mhenders I’m not seeing it myself, but it’s reproducible for a customer. (Interestingly, it only affects one IMAP account, not iCloud one.)

via Hibari in reply to mhenders

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?

via Hibari

@jessegrosjean @ianbeck Cool. I’d been meaning to check it out but didn’t have a chance during the prerelease period.

via Hibari in reply to jessegrosjean

@ianbeck Yeah, FoldingText looks interesting, but no demo.

via Hibari in reply to ianbeck

@nriley @rentzsch Isn’t it better for Apple to handle the security fixes? (Rather than waiting for everyone one of your apps to be updated…)

via Hibari in reply to nriley

@AngryDingo Hmm, after a reboot it seems to work. Before I was getting: http://t.co/8VChHBLh

via Twitterrific for Mac in reply to AngryDingo

@alxknt @andymatthews No drawing glitches when scrolling? Pages that don’t display properly unit you quit/relaunch? Gigabytes of RAM use?

via Hibari in reply to alxknt

@AngryDingo I tried making the folder in my Downloads folder.

via Hibari in reply to AngryDingo

Weird Aperture 3.4.1 sandboxing(?) bug: can’t create new folders from within Export dialog. (“This location is read-only”.)

via Hibari

@TomEck I’d like to, but MailMate isn’t sufficiently AppleScriptable.

via Hibari in reply to TomEck

@TomEck I was a big fan of iCab in the pre-WebKit days. Maybe it’s time for another look.

via Hibari in reply to TomEck

@simX I still prefer Safari, too, just frustrated that it’s gotten worse.

via Hibari in reply to simX

@stormchild That seems worth a try. Thanks! (Enable Debug menu via “defaults write com.apple.Safari IncludeInternalDebugMenu 1”.)

via Hibari in reply to stormchild

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.

via Hibari

Wishing @HibariApp supported Tweet Marker and Load More Tweets.

via Twitterrific for Mac

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.

via Twitterrific for Mac

@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.

via Twitterrific for Mac in reply to craigtheatheist

@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.

via Twitterrific for Mac in reply to craigtheatheist

@craigtheatheist Just Apple ones. It's happened with Message, Flurry, and Arabesque.

via Twitterrific for Mac in reply to craigtheatheist

@c_had It's been happening on and off since Lion. Both 2010 MBP and Retina MBP.

via Twitterrific for Mac in reply to c_had

@craigtheatheist A bunch of WindowServer errors and complaints that ScreenSaverEngine is using deprecated NSImage methods.

via Twitterrific for Mac in reply to craigtheatheist

And I should have used osascript to tell NetNewsWire to quit so that it wouldn't lose all my read statuses.

via Twitterrific for Mac

@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.

via Twitterrific for Mac in reply to rentzsch

@craigtheatheist Killing the screensaver process just gave me a blue screen. And then shortly after it kernel panicked.

via Twitterrific for Mac in reply to craigtheatheist

Another freeze at the screensaver. Could ssh in but to do what? Now trying just energy saver and screen lock, no screensaver.

via Twitterrific for Mac

@hyperjeff Did they seriously do that? I use Contacts
groups all the time on iOS 5.

via Twitterrific for Mac in reply to hyperjeff

@optshiftk Noticed this right away with BBEdit. Not sure why Apple did this without documenting it or providing a modern replacement.

via Hibari in reply to optshiftk

Great—now it appears that the AESendMessage bug in 10.8.2 can cause an app that registers with Growl to hang at launch.

via Hibari

@siegel Good to know. Were you also seeing problems with the external display not waking up from sleep?

via Hibari in reply to siegel

@devesine Yes, that’s a better workaround. Have you seen this? http://t.co/pR9nDKaX

via Hibari in reply to devesine

@panic Makes sense. I’m pleased to see that you were allowed to increase the version to the next 0.1.

via Hibari in reply to panic

@panic Is Transmit 4.2 sandboxed?

via Hibari in reply to panic

Tried using Numbers for managing some notes, rather than a Dropbox text editor. But iCloud keeps showing stale data and inventing conflicts.

via Hibari

@danfrakes @danielpunkass @foresmac Thanks. I actually prefer to use my CD player. Lots of hassle to set up iPhone when getting in the car.

via Hibari in reply to danfrakes

@mmunz Safari has just been really buggy and slow since they split off that sandboxed process.

via Hibari in reply to mmunz

@bwebster @danielpunkass @foresmac Changing the label size is a good tip. I’d still like to see more labels, though.

via Hibari in reply to bwebster

@danielpunkass @foresmac I think Apple waits too long to show the text. At normal zooms, it makes the data seem sparser than it is.

via Hibari in reply to danielpunkass

@foresmac @danielpunkass Apple’s colors and drawing style drive me crazy. Even MapQuest and Bing seem better. Maybe I’m just not used to it?

via Hibari in reply to foresmac

@danielpunkass Says a lot that they think a Web site beats the native apps. My conclusion as well. Good data, well presented.

via Hibari in reply to danielpunkass

@danielpunkass That one. Doesn’t seem to be fixed in 3.5.6 (5321).

via Hibari in reply to danielpunkass

@smorr @danielpunkass There are two types of bugs: ones only I notice and ones lots of users report. Fixing reduces tech support.

via Hibari in reply to smorr

@danielpunkass That’s the hope. (Now when are you going to fix my MarsEdit bug? :-)

via Hibari in reply to danielpunkass

@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?

via Hibari in reply to danielpunkass

@danielpunkass @cocoalabs And I have the same personality issue. So far this week: worked around a bunch of OS bugs.

via Hibari in reply to danielpunkass

@danielpunkass Short-term, perhaps. But nothing frustrates like a buggy app. I will constantly be on the lookout for a replacement.

via Hibari

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.)

via Hibari

@simX NSWorkspace is not documented as being threadsafe, so I have lots of Launch Services wrapper methods. :-(

via Hibari in reply to simX

@markbaumann Exactly I already share my printer through an AirPort Express.

via Hibari in reply to markbaumann

Thanks to everyone who suggested PDF converter apps.

via Hibari

@nathangaber Interesting. Not a PDF printer, but a multi-purpose viewer that can create PDFs?

via Hibari in reply to NathanGaber

@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.

via Hibari in reply to NathanGaber

@mattgrayson Glad it’s working for you. Seems like my printer should work via the AirPort Express, though. (Plus want remote PDF-printing.)

via Hibari in reply to mattgrayson

“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” :(

via Hibari

@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…

via Hibari in reply to christian_beer

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.

via Hibari

@jsnell I love my e-ink Kindle. Aside from what you’ve mentioned, my main complaint is that it feels slow.

via Hibari in reply to jsnell

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?

via Hibari
