Simon 5 is coming soon!

Simon version 5 is currently in beta testing. It is a massive update, introducing a much-requested feature: syncing the Simon data between multiple Macs, plus a Simon Status service, a Link Checker filter, improved Find filter, iMessage and Speak Error notifiers, a new app icon, and much more.

Important: please note that Simon 5 requires a minimum of macOS 10.12 (Sierra), and will be a paid upgrade from Simon 4 after the beta. Purchasers since September 1, 2020 automatically get a version 5 license (that also works in previous versions).

Read the blog for details.

Issue with Notifiers edit

I just created a few new notifiers and noticed a bug.

When double clicking on a newly created notifier, in some occasion the status says "editing" but no edit screen shows. The only way to get access to the given notifier in edit mode requires stopping and restarting Simon.

Re: Issue with Notifiers edit

That's a new one. Can you please send me your Console log; that may contain an exception explaining what is happening.

If you need anything else, let me know

Thanks for your help,

Re: Console messages

Thank you for that. That helped trace the issue to the Growl notifier plug-in. I assume that was the one you were using? It used the -selectItemWithTag: call mentioned in the console log, which was introduced in Mac OS X 10.4, thus rendering it incompatible with 10.3.9.

Now fixed for the next release.
