Our apps and El Capitan compatibility

As you surely know by now, Apple announced OS X El Capitan (aka Mac OS X 10.11) this week, with general availability this fall. They also released a developer beta, so we were able to give our suite of apps a quick test on the new system.

Given El Capitan’s focus on improving Yosemite, not implementing wholesale changes to the system’s fundamentals, we were hopeful that things would just work.

And that’s what we found: all of our apps appear to work fine. We have not done extensive testing of 100% of the features in 100% of the apps, but they all launch and run, and we tested a number of functions in each app. Even older versions of our apps, such as Name Mangler 2, appear to run fine.

We may have some minor tweaking to do, due to the change in the system font, but the apps themselves are all running under El Capitan. Yes, this includes Butler. Yes, this includes Usher. And Time Sink. And everything else, including Displaperture and the beta Resolutionator. Even our two Safari extensions appear to work.

So if you’re a developer using the preview, or you’re planning on installing the public beta when it’s released, our apps should work as expected. Of course, please let us know if you run into any issues—it’s very difficult for us to test every feature in every app by ourselves.

    Hey there, first of all: I love your product. I use Moom on a daily basis and can not live without it. Thank you so much! :)

    I just found out that with El Capitan you now can hide the menu bar and it would be awesome if Moom would make use of the extra space when using the fullscreen feature :)

    Thanks and cheers!

      We’re looking into official support mechanisms. For now, you can use a hidden pref to tell Moom to ignore the menu bar. In Terminal (don’t quit Moom), paste this:

      defaults write com.manytricks.Moom “Ignore Menu Bar” -bool YES

      Now Moom should use the full screen for zooms and moves … just remember to repeat with NO if you unhide the menu bar.

    Leech not work on OS X El Catiptan PB2.
    download from need login site(perhaps need login cookie).

    • Rob Griffiths says:

      Have you logged into the site from Safari first? You’ll need to do that in order for Leech to work. We also tested in our dev build of El Cap, and it’s working fine on a password protected page here on our site. So if it’s still not working for you, we’d need more details and a way to test on the same site you’re having issues with.

    FYI, when i quite & launch Safari, for instance, the position of the screen has changed from what i specified in Moom.

    • Rob Griffiths says:

      Moom can’t control where Safari—or any app—opens a new window. As of the latest developer release, though, I’m not seeing a problem: Safari launches with its new window in the location where I moved it via Moom.

    Moom doesn’t work for me in El Capitan with any of Apple’s apps: Safari, pages, numbers are the ones I use.

    • Rob Griffiths says:

      Sounds like it’s not listed in System Preferences > Security & Privacy > Privacy > Accessibility. Do you see it listed there?


  5. Christina says:

    I’m having a similar problem as Austin. Just upgraded to El Capitan. App is running but not functional. Under Accessibility it is listed but not checked and I can’t click the check mark or anything there. Any suggestions?

    • Rob Griffiths says:

      I hate to ask stupid questions, but sometimes it’s best to start with the stupid ones :). To check it, you need to click the lock icon at the lower left of the window and enter your admin password. Have you done that?
