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.

Witch 4.4.3 released

Tuesday, September 14th, 2021

Witch 4.4.3 is out with one fix: It no longer ignores tabs in Safari that have never been active.

We weren’t ignoring them on purpose, and in the past, we didn’t ignore them. However, a recent change in Safari’s Accessibility information for those tabs rendered them invisible to Witch. We’ve now forced those invisible tabs back to the visible realm.

Thanks to a couple of different users for reporting the issue.

Update via Witch’s in-app updater, or download a fresh copy from the Witch web page (you won’t lose your settings).

Witch 4.4.2 released

Thursday, August 19th, 2021

Witch 4.4.2 is out, with only one change: Those of you using a version of Safari from the future will find that Witch now has much better support for Safari’s new tabs. You can check for updates on the About tab of the Witch System Preferences panel, or just download a fresh copy from the web site.

Those of you scoring at home may realize that we skipped version 4.4.1. It actually did exist, for a few brief hours, but we pulled the self-destruct trigger on that update when we found a small issue affecting some users.

Name Mangler 3.7.3 released

Thursday, August 12th, 2021

We had not one but two regressions1An issue found in an update that was not in the prior release in Name Mangler 3.7.2, one of which broke the licenses for anyone who had upgraded to Name Mangler 3 from Name Mangler 2. As a result, these users thought this was a paid update, which it clearly was not. You can read more about this in the release notes.

The other issue was that the Clear List menu item would become disabled after a renaming operation.

The good news is that Name Mangler 3.7.3 fixes both issues, and is available now for direct users, and should be available shortly, if not already, for App Store users. (The license issue didn’t affect the App Store version, given Apple controls the licensing for apps in the store.)

Butler, Name Mangler, and Resolutionator updated

Tuesday, August 10th, 2021

Three minor (but important) updates today. Butler 4.4.3 now works better with Monterey betas, Name Mangler 3.7.2 fixes a rare crash when dragging files out of the file list, and Resolutionator 2.1 adds support for the 24″ iMac, and improves the display name for some displays.

You could go read the release notes for all three apps, but really, that’s everything that’s in today’s updates. If you bought these apps from us, you can update within each app, or by downloading a fresh copy of the app from our server (you won’t lose your settings).

App Store users of Name Mangler can find the update in the App Store app.
