@danielpunkass It lets me enter more, but then after refreshing it changes it back to 999.
So Apple TV *still* has that bug where if you tell it to hide the NBA scores it shows them anyway.
@betalogue Seems like there should be a way to uncheck that but still use that second display in Full Screen.
@danielpunkass Wish it let me download more than 999.
@mcelhearn I never said it was my inbox. :-)
@mcelhearn Yes, lots of spam and logging e-mails, mailing lists. Plus, sometimes Mail gives me phantom unread messages a few pages up.
@mcelhearn I use the classic layout as well. The problem that you cannot use the Page Up/Down keys to scroll the top-right pane.
AppleScript to the rescue: mjtsai.com/blog/2013/10/3…
Not sure what’s happening here, but beware of using the new “plutil -extract”. Thought it would send to stdout, but it overwrote my file.
@bwebster The odd thing is that it says the man page was updated today, but it only lists the one service.
Surprised that tccutil still seems to only support the AddressBook service. And does anyone know what tcc stands for?
@jeffhellman Fixed; thanks.
@simX I’ve been having a hard time getting used to that as well.
@nriley Interesting, thanks. So what UI framework are they using?
I added some spreadsheet measurements from OpenOffice. I guess Java XML is pretty fast. mjtsai.com/blog/2013/10/2…
Just got a report that the AESendMessage/typeSignature bug from 10.8.2 may be back in Mavericks. mjtsai.com/blog/2012/10/0…
@notio Leads to lots of essentially wasted time. I don’t think it helps go faster in the long term. Dangerous to sprint continuously.
@notio To me it now feels like we are perpetually in a state of lots of things not working properly.
@fetchguy It seems to happen for apps where I normally mix windows between displays, e.g. Mail’s Activity window on aux display.
So, surprisingly, I find multi-display support to be worse in Mavericks. Apps no longer remember which display a window was on.
@dlpasco I found that for my simple spreadsheet, Google Docs worked better on the phone.
@nedley No. I thought the iWork apps became self-contained when they were added to the Mac App Store.
@stormchild Right. I really do want to be prompted, just once per site.
@stormchild How does that address the issue of being prompted multiple times for different subdomains? I just want to block all of them.
Safari’s “Trust Flash?” sheet needs to add Little Snitch–style control over subdomains. I’m being prompted so many times for the same site.
@stormchild Not sure what the deal is with FCPX. I alternately read that it’s great now and that it’s so bad for pros that they switched.
@stormchild Yeah, if anything, the new iWork UI seems less scalable to pro features.
@stormchild Yeah, you get new UI (which seems simpler but less efficient) plus prevented from using accidentally non-iOS-compatible features
So those old files that don’t open properly in iWork ’13 may be orphaned if you don’t have the DVD version plus updaters.
Investigating whether iWork ’09 can be transferred to a new Mac. Expected MAS dialog to get new receipt, but it just says the app is damaged
Putting aside the UI changes, Numbers ’13 moved around the tables in one of my documents so that they overlap and are now unreadable.
@mpweiher Very true.
@mhenders I haven’t investigated yet, but is Mail now relying more on Spotlight for smart mailboxes rather than its own Envelope Index?
@optshiftk Missing endnotes and no longer allowing images in Pages headers/footers seems like a big deal, too.
@drewmccormack The iWork team apparently has so little confidence in Core Data that they reinvented this rather than wait for it to be fixed
@drewmccormack Exactly. Partial loading and efficient syncing of changes are supposed to be exactly the problems that Core Data solves.
@drewmccormack So why invent a new partial loading document format when iCloud already has built-in support for one?
Looks like Numbers is no longer using an XML-based format and no longer embeds PDF previews. :-(
@dianeoforegon Actually, the main problem is my smart mailbox of unread spam. :-)
@simX No, I mean a list of messages (the top-right pane in the classic layout).
Has anyone figured out how to Page Down through a message list in Apple Mail on Mavericks? Holding Control doesn’t work anymore.
@DanFrakes Right. I knew it was necessary when editing the plist files manually. Surprised that the “defaults” command doesn’t auto-sync.
@cocoalabs The circles are still based on my wallpaper, but the numbers are white (which I like).
Clicking on AirDrop in Mavericks asked me to Allow it to make connections. I don’t recall that happening before for built-in OS services.
Yay for thicker text in the iOS 7.0.3 dial pad.
That was fast. A plurality of my customers (41%) are already on Mavericks. Snow Leopard is about to pass Lion.
@nriley Perhaps it’s a mistake, but my main Amazon account has all my Kindle metadata as well as AWS services and associated data.
@nriley Sounds nice, but I don’t want to give out my login info.
@nriley Do any of these apps work without your having to manually enter the tracking numbers. E-mail notifications from UPS are automatic…
@petermaurer It doesn’t even matter so much to me that GM no longer has the same meaning. But tell us when there’s a new build!
@rob_rix Yes, and the .dmg is 60 MB larger.
Maybe everyone already knows this, but the Xcode 5.0.1 GM seed is not the same as the release version.
@danielpunkass Unfortunately, the problems extend beyond Gmail.
@boredzo The new plutil commands are show by “plutil -help” but not “man plutil”. Wonder if there’s some sort of escaping for keypaths…
@boredzo Do you know why plutil and PlistBuddy are separate?
@mhenders They are; that’s why it needs to reindex (and do you want to join the beta list?)
@mhenders Sounds like you upgraded to Mavericks. It will resume where it left off.
@mhenders Yeah, the Mac version is not a great app, but it’s very useful.
@mpweiher Then perhaps a greater chance of it getting fixed!
@ClarkGoble Have you tried the Super Cache plug-in?
@kevinwalzer My experience has been that customers love AppleScript support in apps.
Incidentally, what’s up with Preview’s AppleScript support. In 10.9 it finally has NSAppleScriptEnabled set, but there’s no dictionary.
Glad to see that @ClarkGoble’s post is getting enough attention that his database server can’t keep up.
@concreteniche I never actually scripted iWork since Pages and Numbers didn’t meet my needs in the first place.
@nriley Cool. Much easier than the old way of writing handlers with interleaved parameters.
@danielpunkass Yes, they broke lots of scripts that used to work.
Mail in Mavericks still supports AppleScript, but moving messages via AppleScript sometimes now takes several seconds vs. instantaneous.
@nriley This is only for special AppleScriptObjC scripts, right?
@bwebster Finder and Activity Monitor windows have glitches, too, though presumably not due to Auto Layout.
@nriley Yes, Daring Fireball looks much worse in Safari on 10.9 than on 10.8.
@landonfuller According to the marketing, Mavericks is all about power users.
Went to System Preferences to check the font settings, and it’s all messed up. pic.twitter.com/3p9OzPANPA
Not sure why, but anti-aliased text (especially in in Mail and FogBugz’s Web site) looks much lighter/fuzzier since updating to Mavericks.
Mavericks is prompting me for every e-mail password that was already in my keychain and adding it to the new Local Items keychain.
@viticci Right. The status bar doesn’t update in Reader (Safari 6.0.5).
Was going to try reading Siracusa’s review in Safari reader, but it doesn’t show URLs on mouseover.
@danielpunkass I misunderstood. So you can DM anyone now, even if they don’t follow you? Aside from discretely reporting typos, sounds bad.
@danielpunkass How does that follow as a side effect?
@mhenders Then you wouldn’t normally see SpamSieve’s colors, right? I guess Mail now shows junk as brown when its own filter is off.
@mhenders Looking into it. This did not happen for me with the betas. May be that the junk status (SpamSieve marks as junk) overrides color.
@drdrang I’m pretty sure there’s another Apple example (where AppleScript was eventually added back), but I can’t recall it right now.
@drdrang Xcode, plus some third-party apps like NetNewsWire.
@danielpunkass And, aside from the A7, it brings the biggest perceptual speed increase in years.
@nriley Yep, it feels much faster now.
Reduced Motion in iOS 7.0.3 is great.
Despite what the e-mail says, “Manage iCloud download settings for this app” does not seem to be available in iTunes Connect yet.
“Users who have already purchased your Mac app are now able to download previous versions, allowing them to use your app with Macs that…”
@cocoalabs Agreed. Will be interesting to see how it compares with a Kindle for reading.
Looks like the Retina iPad mini has gone up from 0.68 to 0.73 lbs. Depth increased from 0.28 to 0.29 inch. Same battery life.
@stormchild Nope, you didn’t miss that.
How much does the Retina iPad mini weigh?
@dnanian Seems like this will break lots of apps and user scripts.
@dnanian Hey, you could use process names as a primitive form of IPC.
@leebennett Just because Apple is allowed to do it…
@siracusa Great way to check out the burn in on an rMBP.
@siracusa It seems like around a 2x difference to me.
Messed up and saved my file that had uncommitted but good changes. Quickly rescued by @bbedit’s “Compare Against Previous Version” feature.
@simX Would be more useful than actual printing to me.
@nriley I was using the side. Do you think there’s a benefit to deleting and re-adding a finger, rather than just adding it again?
@mpweiher Right. Core Data is probably at least an order of magnitude slower, and its objects are heavier.
@reneritchie That you know of. :-)
@nriley Yeah, at this point I routinely fail with four different fingers in a row. It doesn’t like lotion, either, so I’m stuck.
@atomicbird Right. You have to bring the objects into memory to modify them; then, until you save, you get slow in-memory filtering.
@drewmccormack And an SQLite index on disk can be way faster than Core Data’s in-memory predicate filtering.
@drewmccormack Not for batch updates like Brent’s “corner case.”
@drewmccormack Would be fun to see those massive schemas as NSManagedObjectModels.
@drewmccormack It’s possibly convenient, but not high perf, to bring all objects into RAM before operating on them.
@drewmccormack You think that, absent the history, Core Data would make a better word processing/spreadsheet document format than XML?
@drewmccormack Notes and iBooks don’t use it for syncing, either. Nor for storing large amounts of data. No iWork or iLife apps (AFAIK).
@mikeabdullah They do, but basically as a cache layer. Not for primary data storage or for syncing.
@drewmccormack Article says that you should use Core Data because Apple uses it for apps, and Apple knows best. But where are said apps?
@drewmccormack Aperture used to use Core Data, switched away from it, and got faster.
@drewmccormack They use SQLite and other syncing infrastructure for, from what I can tell, are good reasons.
@drdrang I must have been thinking of Amazon. Seems like such a basic feature. I guess you could add a unique campaign to each link…
Finding Apple’s new PHG affiliate reporting inscrutable. Is there really no way to see which apps/songs were clicked on, or from where?
@willco007 It’s still not even documented how various APIs behave in the sandbox, and this is still changing from version to version.
@mikeabdullah And also that the locale only affects the decimal separator, which implies that integers aren’t affected by locale.
@mikeabdullah Hmm. The docs seem to say that both -stringWithFormat: and localizedStringWithFormat: end up calling a “locale” method.
@mikeabdullah Depends on what method you’re passing the format string to.
@boredzo I suppose that’s possible, but my guess is it would break tons of apps, as well as framework code.
@kcase Cool. Any news on TextExpander support?
@apontious Is there a good reason not to use “%@“ and box the numbers?
@TeamOneJ Thanks, but I guess that's not it in my case. No crash logs. Just lots of Calendar data use compared with other apps.
@TeamOneJ Is there a way to tell that just from the iPhone? I haven’t even been changing the calendar. Not sure what it would be syncing.
MotionX GPS worked great for my hike yesterday. Faster start than Amod. Smoother line. Used much less battery than I was expecting.
Trying LTE for the first time. Super fast. But why is Calendar using more cellular data than all my other apps combined?
@siracusa Yay! I’ve been seeing that for a few years, too.
@siegel Please, no.
@roustem It’s confusing to see “Not Installed” but “Running.” If you detect that Dropbox is running, how about just assume it’s installed?
@roustem Along similar lines, it looks like 1Password didn’t expect that I would have Dropbox installed in ~/Applications/.
@roustem That seems to fix the problem. Thanks!
@roustem Correct. Should it be? I seem to recall the iOS app preferring it at the top level.
@roustem Glad that it sounds like you know what the source of the problem is.
Looks like my 1Password 4 Dropbox sync is broken because of a sandbox issue.
@rosyna Does it support multiple windows?
@mhenders What do you do for storing edits?
@craigmorgan I’m not very happy with the new version, but actually performance seems to be improved for me—especially the launch time.
@maxwellarm No NetNewsWire syncing yet. Still missing most of the Pro features that were in NNW 3 (which ReadKit is also missing).
@rickfillion They are implemented, though. Someone must have decided to change them.
@mhenders The Aperture thumbnails and previews take lots of space.
@rickfillion Feature request submitted. But mostly I’m curious about why you made the changes in the first place.
NetNewsWire 4 also moved the matching “Mark All as Read” command to a different menu (Site), though the “All” refers to Articles.
Not getting why NetNewsWire 4 changed the keyboard shortcut for marking as unread (used to match Mail’s).
Well, I guess that double Dock icon bug in Mountain Lion (for Growl and other LSUIElement apps) isn’t going to be fixed before Mavericks.
