Usher 2.2 released

Monday, December 20th, 2021

Usher 2.2 is out, with a number of changes as detailed in the release notes. Most notably, Usher can now tell the difference between files that are simply unavailable (due to an unmounted volume) and those that are truly missing. We also fixed rotated movie playback on macOS Monterey, and improved full screen mode for those of you using notched displays.

As always, you can update from within the app, or by downloading a fresh copy of the app (you won’t lose any settings) from the Usher web page.

Moom 3.2.24 released

Thursday, December 16th, 2021

Moom 3.2.24 is out, with some cosmetic fixes for macOS Monterey, and a fix that allows Moom to work with Cursor Pro and LyricsX. See the full list in the release notes.

As always, direct users can either update in-app, or by downloading a fresh copy of the app from the Moom web page. App Store users should see the update in the App Store app—if not now, then shortly.

How to: Use Moom in macOS Shortcuts

Monday, December 13th, 2021

Users of macOS Monterey can use the new (to macOS) app Shortcuts to automate many tasks. Developers can add direct support for Shortcuts to their apps, and we’ve heard the requests: We are investigating Shortcuts to see how we can improve support in the next major version of Moom. But just because better support may be coming in the future doesn’t mean you’re locked out of working with Moom in the Shortcuts app right now.

Moom has long supported a basic AppleScript dictionary, and Shortcuts can (with a simple setting change) execute AppleScripts. Once you’ve made that change, you can use Shortcuts to interact with some of Moom’s features. In particular, you can:

  • Activate a saved window layout snapshot.
  • Save a window layout snapshot. You can optionally merge with an existing saved layout snapshot, or replace an existing one (if one exists; if not, it will be created).
  • Center the frontmost window, either using macOS guideline (which is slightly above screen center), or to the exact screen center.
  • Generate a list of saved window layout snapshots.

Here are a few examples to get you started.

Witch 4.5 is out

Wednesday, November 17th, 2021

Witch 4.5 is out, with a couple of minor fixes. We resolved a problem that caused an incorrect free updates expiration date to appear on the license (in the About tab), and we worked around an issue caused by the new too-tall menu bars on the 14″ and 16″ notched MacBook Pros. You could read the release notes, but that’s about all you’ll find there.

As usual, you can update via the in-app updater, or by installing a fresh copy of the System Preferences panel from the Witch web page.

Menuwhere 2.1.1 is out

Friday, November 5th, 2021

Menuwhere 2.1.1 is out today, though it’s nothing to get overly excited about, as it’s a very minor update: The only visible change is in a shortcut key for users on macOS Monterey.

In Monterey, Apple changed the shortcut for Full Screen mode to Function-F, and represents that shortcut with a globe icon (🌐 F) for users with a globe icon on their actual Function keys, and as fn F for all other users.

In Menuwhere, though, the Full Screen shortcut is represented—regardless of what type of actual Function key you have—by a circled F: . You’ll also see a circled letter for any other Function key shortcuts, though we’re only aware of fn F at present.

Why can’t we show you the real keyboard shortcuts for those menu items, as Apple does? Because Apple restricts them to system-provided menus.

Update via the in-app updater, or by downloading a fresh copy of Menuwhere from our web site.

Our apps and macOS Monterey compatibility

Thursday, November 4th, 2021

Sorry this is a bit late; I didn’t think about it much because, well, everything basically works fine. There are two minor issues (you can’t see rotated movies in Usher, and menu items for saved layouts in Moom are slightly too tall), but both will be fixed in upcoming minor updates. Outside of those two things, we’re not aware of any other issues with our apps in macOS Monterey.

If you do run into a glitch of some sort, please do let us know about it.

Resolutionator 2.2 supports new MacBook Pros

Wednesday, November 3rd, 2021

Resolutionator 2.2 is out, and it supports the just-released 14″ and 16″ MacBook Pro models. We have a 14″ model in-house, and Resolutionator seems to work well with that model, but if you notice any oddities with either model when using Resolutionator, please let us know.

Witch 4.4.4 once again sees tabs in all the Safaris

Friday, October 8th, 2021

Continuing our game of tennis with Safari and Safari Technology Preview, Witch 4.4.4 can once again list open tabs in the latest Safari releases in both shipping and soon-to-be-shipped versions of macOS.

Although we enjoy tennis, we hope this game ends soon.

Time Sink 2.2.3 released

Friday, September 24th, 2021

Time Sink 2.2.3 is out, and it will mainly be of interest to those of you still using macOS 10.9 through 10.11: We fixed an issue that was causing a crash if Time Sink was used in menu bar mode.

Direct customers can update via in-app updates, or by downloading a fresh copy of the app from our site (you won’t lose your data). App Store users should see the update in the App Store app, if not now then shortly.

Desktop Curtain 3.1.3 and Butler 4.4.4 released

Thursday, September 23rd, 2021

Two very minor updates today; Desktop Curtain 3.1.3 fixes some issues for those running macOS 10.9 (Mavericks), and Butler 4.4.4 fixes an issue related to non-functional keyboard navigation of pop-up menus after using the clipboard window a couple of times.

I’d include links to the release notes, but really, the above is all you’ll find there.

Direct customers can update in-app, or by downloading a fresh copy of the app from our web site (you won’t lose your settings). App Store customers of Desktop Curtain should see the update available in the Mac App Store app—if not now, then shortly.
