Pleased to see that copying table text from PDFs works better in PDFpen than in Preview.

Anyone know the new default key for disabling data detectors in Apple Mail?

Thanks to @edgecasesshow for reminding me about TaskPaper. I'm now having fun with the BBEdit CLM, adding a bit of structure to my notes.

@mikeabdullah Anyway, I would standardize all calls to a category on NSURL. Then you can change the implementation as best practices change.

@mikeabdullah @0xced @benclayton You could, but I don’t really see the advantage compared with the path methods or stat().

@mikeabdullah @0xced @benclayton Also note that NSURLIsReadableKey and the other keys could give you a stale value due to the cache.

@mikeabdullah @0xced @benclayton I tried those a while ago and found them much slower than the path variants.

@boredzo Oh well, I thought you meant Steven Levy’s Crypto.

@danfrakes @nriley That’s odd since I don’t think iCloud syncs the enabled/disabled state. And it seems to enable new rules by default.

@nriley No, I’m seeing old versions of rules coming back and new changes not sticking.

iCloud document syncing is messed up, too. Customers’ Mail rules keep getting changed behind their backs even though they only have one Mac.

@paulhagstrom Surprising how old movies, which I created in QuickTime Player, don’t play in new versions. Thought QT would be like .doc.

@chockenberry @lexfri He’s right, but I hate to pay for apps that I don’t end up using. Would pay 5x or even 10x current prices with trials.
