Really, the only thing I've ever wanted was a way to sync Stickies across machines. Evernote is ridiculously overbuilt for what I want so I basically stopped using it. I just need something I can jot down and read on another machine, not an organization system for my scribblings.

That's why I pretty much just end up emailing things to myself.

Have you searched the App Store for Stuffit?

None of those sync nearly as well as Evernote. I'm beginning to think I'll have to put up with Evernote after all. It's disappointing that such an otherwise awesome and useful tool is dragged down by something so basic. I'll try to learn to live with it (and hope desperately for some fixes). Thanks everyone.
Maybe VoodooPad? I haven't used it in a few years but from what I remember it seems like it might work...although I have no clue about the iOS app (assuming it exists, I vaguely recall hearing about it).

There is a VoodooPad presence on the App Store for iOS. I think they have a "viewer" type app, and then a "premium" one that lets you edit, etc.

I did send them the same feedback. I got back a fairly lame response of "well, it's all HTML based so it's kinda hard, ya know? But we're always working on it..." (based on their own forums all these bugs have gone unfixed for half a year already). But I can still hope.

Stickies.... One of my clients has somewhere around 50 stickies on her desktop and it's always a huge mess. I shudder to imagine using those myself. Whatever floats your boat though.

Could someone who is running the Mountain Lion beta download and run the OpenGL Extension Viewer from the appstore for me then copy paste the stuff under the report tab on paste bin?

Basically I'm needing some OpenGL extensions that are not available in Lion (praise to Apple for still shipping OpenGL 2.1 in 2011) and I'm wondering if I should fork out $100 for a dev center membership to get beta access...

Something running on my MacBook Air is preventing it from going to sleep. My energy saver preferences are set to display turning off after one minute and the computer fully going to sleep after 5 minutes.

Knowing that some kind of update to the iOS versions of iWork was inevitable today, I was really hoping they'd announce updates to the Mac suite as well. No luck, obviously. At the very least they should really be embarrassed about selling something called "Pages '09" in 2012 (one of the many reasons it is stupid to use years in software titles).

Assuming I give in and buy the '09 versions from the App Store now, what are people's opinions on the likelihood that Apple will charge for the (drat well better be) inevitable '12 update? Normally updates to MAS apps are free, but I'm afraid of Apple saying "but this is the biggest update these apps have gotten in years!" (no poo poo) and posting them as new/separate apps rather than upgrades. I suppose there's probably zero precedent for that and my fears are unfounded, but I thought I'd check here anyway.

No precedent either way on the Mac App Store so . I'm hoping they go 'The new iPad" route and just drop any particular number designation in the name (like the iOS versions have).

There's also a paid upgrade functionality I don't think they've rolled that out (or no one has used it), although that might just be for the non app store to app store "upgrades" that's possible now.

Almost every time I remote into my Mac Mini Server (mid 2010), I find lots of black poo poo covering most of the screen. As I open windows and drag stuff around, the black disappears to reveal the screen. e.g.



It's not a massive problem, because it's quick and easy to get rid of, but it's kind of annoying. It did it when it had Snow Leopard Server installed, and it still does it since I upgraded to Lion Server. It runs headless some of the time, but this doesn't seem to have any effect on whether the black appears or not, and the blackness only show on the remote connection and not on the physical display. I've tried third party VNC clients, other than ARD, and the problem persists.

Does anyone know what's going on, and how to fix it?

Looks similar to the login screen bug.

"I think I have just found a solution, the display sleep and computer sleep options in Energy saver must be greater than the time of logout after inactivity in Security & Privacy. For example my logout time is 8 minutes, computer and display sleep is 10 minutes. It seems to work for me, let me know how it works for you."

I haven't had this problem on my Snow Leopard machine, but I've had it on Windows/Linux machines. There are options you can play with that make VNC faster - ignoring the background, only sending updates to windows you're moving/using, etc



Of course you'll have to figure out how to set the various options through the config files on the Mac.

Holy gently caress, why is Evernote so highly recommended everywhere I look? I just tried it and it's a total loving disaster. I'll list my issues here so at least some people get a chance to hear it may not be as awesome as reviews tend to say.

1) Fucks up pasting formatted text from other apps (i.e. once it reaches a bold segment, all the rest of the pasted text becomes bold regardless).

2) The iOS version can't handle editing lists deeper than one level. This is ridiculous for a note taking app, as lists/outlines are a terribly common way to structure notes.

3) No support for tabs. It'll just insert multiple spaces instead. Wouldn't be a deal breaker within the app (for me), but if you need tabs to be retained when you copy/paste a snippet back into another app... well, gently caress.

4) Even really basic notes with nothing but plain, bold, and italic text gives me "Some of this formatting is not supported" warnings on iOS, despite the fact that these things are supported. WTF?

5) If you switch between editing your notes on iOS and Mac, random blank lines* will start appearing all throughout your notes. Sometimes you'll hit return and get two lines, or one line where you wanted it and also another line inserted just before the line you were on. And as if to keep the cosmic scales in balance, line breaks will randomly disappear sometimes, too. So gently caress you if you want any kind of consistent spacing in your lists/paragraphs/whatever.

* Blank lines are no longer blank on the Mac version once you've edited a note on iOS. Each blank line starts with a single space character. This includes blank lines you intentionally put there, not just the ones that appear by magic.

6) Evernote on iOS allows the iOS data detectors to linkify dates. Not uncommon on iOS, but Evernote saves these links as actual links when you save your edits on iOS, resulting in completely useless links scattered throughout your notes on the Mac (links to x-apple-data-detectors://0).

A little googling revealed these issues have been around for at least six months (maybe longer, but at this point I don't care to dig further).

I don't use it to write notes, really, but I love the clipping functionality.

I've had a lot of questions lately! Anyone have an opinion on Fingerprint vs Printopia? (I've tried AirPrint activator and it's too flaky. I'm more than happy to pay a few bucks for something better.)

japtor

I have Printopia and it works, and from what I've read Fingerprint also works so...pick whichever? One nice thing about Printopia I noticed (which may or may not apply to Fingerprint) is that they show up as regular printers for other computers as well so that's kind of useful for some stuff. Like I set up a "Save to Web Receipts" printer and use that when on other machines on the LAN occasionally, vs doing something like mounting a network share and saving a PDF to there.

Set up might be prettier with Printopia (pref pane), didn't try Fingerprint but looked like it used a separate app. They both have trials to just try both I guess. One trick I noticed with Printopia at least, it has some default emoji it uses for whatever types of printers, but if you don't like those you can just do the manual name and use the emoji character input to put in whatever you want. Like a "💩 Printer" if you uh, have a printer in the bathroom (or just have a really lovely printer).

Edit: er, never mind, it appears that people WANTED the old version of Quicken updated for Lion because transaction entry is quicker/easier, Quicken 2007 had better / more flexible report generation, and overall is free of the new feature dickery later versions were stuffed full of, including the current Quicken Essentials for Mac.

I just love that a 5 year old program is their crowning achievement. And minus essentials, it is their only foray into the greater Mac omniverse. Although now they also own Mint, so they got them at both ends.

We need not be so generous. It's Intuit.

You know, the company that never in their history delivered feature parity between platforms. That company that in 2008 said "Awesome brand new Quicken this year!" The company that in 2009 said "Awesome brand new Quicken... in 2010! Really!" The company that in 2010 said "Sweet new Mac Quicken coming within months, here's Quicken Essentials as a palate cleanser!" The company that in 2012 said "Nuh uh, we never said you'd get new Quicken! But, uh, we'll give you Quicken 2007 for Intel. For real this time. Not like the other thirty times we've said it was coming."

Or the company that spends millions creating a lousy competitor for Mint, then just buys Mint, then promotes Mint's founder to VP of Personal Finance to make their consumer applications awesome, then shows him the door because he wants to make their consumer applications awesome.
