@ATP_Tipster1 @gruber I’m also seeing issues with new Apple keyboards, starting with 10.12.2.

via Tweetbot for Mac in reply to ATP_Tipster1

@lapcatsoftware :( Well, cool that you have a local archive.

via Tweetbot for Mac in reply to lapcatsoftware

@lapcatsoftware Does it archive Twitter? Or is it still caching your Twitter RSS feed from years ago?

@mlilback Currently Fever, but I’ll be switching (maybe to something that uses the Fever API).

via Tweetbot for Mac in reply to mlilback

@mlilback Please contact me if you end up pursuing that.

via Tweetbot for Mac

@DocterD @weichsel I haven’t seen a good solution for that. I think you have to get to RSS Zero before switching.

via Tweetbot for Mac in reply to DocterD

@DocterD That doesn’t seem like a problem because I could just use cron. What do you mean by full feed parsing?

via Tweetbot for Mac in reply to DocterD

@DocterD Was not aware of that option. Will take a look. Thanks.

via Tweetbot for Mac in reply to DocterD

@lapcatsoftware Oh no, I think the Herbert one went over my head.

@daniel_a_a If DropDMG detects that the Finder is not saving the view settings, it will keep retrying until everything is saved properly.

via Tweetbot for Mac in reply to daniel_a_a

@daniel_a_a Yes, if you need further assistance please e-mail dropdmg@c-command.com. Some settings and logging we could try.

via Tweetbot for Mac in reply to daniel_a_a

@daniel_a_a Did you have Finder windows open prior to using DropDMG? If the dmg window is the only one, Finder will use it as template.

via Tweetbot for Mac in reply to daniel_a_a

@daniel_a_a It’s normal for it to hide the status bar in the disk image’s window. Not the other windows.

via Tweetbot for Mac in reply to daniel_a_a

@jsnell They really stay in amazingly well.

@charlesismcom My headset BT issues were no sound, very delayed sound, spontaneous unpairing, no way to pause/resume from the headset.

via Tweetbot for Mac in reply to charlesismcom

Magic Keyboard works via Bluetooth after restarting Mac.

via Tweetbot for Mac in reply to mjtsai

@charlesismcom Time will tell whether the switching between devices works well. But for regular iPhone use, AirPods already are improvement.

via Tweetbot for Mac in reply to charlesismcom

@charlesismcom I really dislike wired ones. So much so that I’ve been using a Bluetooth headset for music and podcasts for years.

via Tweetbot for Mac in reply to charlesismcom

@rosyna Control Center does work. I’m not just in the habit of using it for Bluetooth.

via Tweetbot for Mac in reply to rosyna

@rosyna It does. I was referring to using the AirPods with my iPhone.

via Tweetbot for Mac in reply to rosyna

@ameaijou Yeah, I think it’s an OS issue, too. At least the Magic can work without Bluetooth, but even via Lightning there are some issues.

via Tweetbot for Mac in reply to ameaijou

AirPods seem pretty comfortable. Had to manually switch to them in BT settings. Case is awesome. Controlling via Siri feels impossibly slow.

via Tweetbot for Mac

Typing now only works via Lightning.

via Tweetbot for Mac in reply to mjtsai

Magic Keyboard #2 continues to malfunction. Plug in. Notification that wirelessly connected. Pref pane says connected; BT menu says not.

@z31r4m I’m wondering whether I’m seeing an OS bug. What are the odds of multiple defective keyboards?

via Tweetbot for iΟS in reply to z31r4m

@z31r4m Thanks for the recommendation. I was thinking about giving that one a try.

via Tweetbot for Mac in reply to z31r4m

Received replacement Magic Keyboard. Still having issues with keys repeating.

@jgordonshare So I’m not even sure why the master one works now.

via Tweetbot for Mac in reply to mjtsai

@jgordonshare Now it works with the master password but not with the app-specific one. I had switched to app-specific because they made me.

via Tweetbot for Mac in reply to jgordonshare

@dancounsell The Kindle app has to link to a special version of the Amazon store that only lets you download free samples.

via Tweetbot for Mac in reply to dancounsell

@dancounsell Does it go to the site with the Buy Now buttons? I agree the rule’s stupid, but it seems pretty clear that you’re violating it.

via Tweetbot for Mac in reply to dancounsell

@dancounsell I sympathize (since you can’t IAP what someone else sells), but seems pretty clear to me that you aren’t supposed to do that.

via Tweetbot for Mac in reply to dancounsell

@CraicDesign That’s what I’m guessing, since it started with 10.12.2. Thinking of going back to the old USB keyboard for a while.

via Tweetbot for Mac in reply to CraicDesign

@CraicDesign Yes. Connect/disconnect, repeating keys, dropping keys. Plugging in is a quick fix but doesn’t always last, unfortunately.

via Tweetbot for Mac in reply to CraicDesign

Magic Keyboard issues seem to not be caused by Bluetooth because they also happen when it’s plugged in via Lightning.

@mjdrayton That fixed things immediately today. Then more glitches a few minutes later.

via Tweetbot for Mac

@camflan Yep, I’ve had constant Console spew from Keychain since installing Sierra.

via Tweetbot for Mac in reply to camflan

@leebennett Nope. :( It’s an opaque process. I don’t know what I could do differently if I were updating again.

via Tweetbot for Mac in reply to leebennett

Lightroom reverted to 6.7 (via 6.0) and Auto Import and Synchronize Folder work again.

via Tweetbot for Mac

@mjdrayton No, but that’s a great tip. Thanks! Any different from rebooting?

via Tweetbot for Mac in reply to mjdrayton

@McCloudStrife Makes it easier to find and work around the new OS bugs that affect my apps.

via Tweetbot for Mac in reply to McCloudStrife

@lapcatsoftware Yeah, seems like everything is broken today. :(

via Tweetbot for Mac in reply to lapcatsoftware

@nickheer The thing is it worked flawlessly for years. “It just works” -> “It used to work.”

via Tweetbot for Mac in reply to nickheer

@nickheer I don't find the new arrow key layout to be an improvement.

via Tweetbot for Mac in reply to nickheer

@nickheer Charging the Magic Keyboard works well. Otherwise, not that impressed. Still drops first character of FileVault password.

via Tweetbot for Mac in reply to nickheer

@nickheer This is actually why I got the Magic Keyboard recently. Problems stopped until 10.12.2.

via Tweetbot for Mac in reply to nickheer

Another problem since updating to macOS 10.12.2: Magic Keyboard is spontaneously disconnecting, dropping keys, and repeating keys.

via Tweetbot for Mac

Updated iPad to iOS 10.2, and it was removed as a trusted device because Apple thinks I erased it.

via Tweetbot for Mac

@SteveMoser Sounds like a lot of work to re-add everything, but I may end up having to do that.

via Tweetbot for Mac in reply to SteveMoser

macOS 10.12.2: Messages says app-specific password (even new one) is invalid. If use master Apple ID password, get “An error occurred…”

via Tweetbot for Mac

For example, copying a rectangular selection got the bounds slightly off in 10.12.0/1. Now it messes up the display and gets bounds way off.

via Tweetbot for Mac in reply to mjtsai

Looks like some PDF bugs fixed 10.12.2, faster rendering, some 10.12 bugs remain, some new ones.

via Tweetbot for Mac

@mcelhearn @tweetbot Yeah, so Safari always fills in the one that I just reauthorized, not the one I need to reauthorize now.

via Tweetbot for Mac in reply to mcelhearn

@mcelhearn @tweetbot And then Safari auto-fills the wrong username because it has no way of knowing.

via Tweetbot for Mac in reply to mcelhearn

And, @1Password is saying it has sync problems, but I click Fix and it shows the prefs saying that it synced 3 seconds ago.

via Tweetbot for Mac in reply to mjtsai

Good thing Safari still shows the URL so I can see the query parameter for the Twitter username that @tweetbot wants me to authorize…

via Tweetbot for Mac in reply to mjtsai

And OmniFocus. I don’t understand what happened. Still lots of items in the keychain.

via Tweetbot for Mac in reply to mjtsai

Updated to macOS 10.12.2 and my FileVault, iCloud, Tweetbot, and Fantastical passwords were all forgotten.

via Twitter Web Client

In macOS 10.12.2, tab characters no longer work in attributed menu item titles; displayed as garbage.

via Tweetbot for Mac

@simX @irons I’ve been seeing it in some apps since around 10.10, too, but not Xcode till now.

via Tweetbot for Mac in reply to simX

Although Synchronize Folder still isn't enabled on the internal drive.

via Tweetbot for Mac in reply to mjtsai

Reverting to a backup of the Lightroom catalog seemed to fix it.

via Tweetbot for Mac in reply to mjtsai

Weird: All of a sudden Lightroom won’t auto import, auto import dialog raises exception, drag import doesn’t work, Sync Folder disabled.

@ianbeck In my case, the iPad hadn’t been touched in about 12 hours.

What does it mean that my iPad wanted me to log in for Activation Lock? Just a software bug? Someone trying to hack my account?
