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).

How to move tests between machines?

I'm not sure why my previous post was removed (and thus unanswered, although it was in moderation because of two links), but I'll post it again in a much shortened version:

I'm moving Simon from a 10.5.8 machine to a 10.8.2 machine. How do I move my tests from one machine to the other?

Re: How to move tests between machines?

I'm sorry for the moderation issue — I'm fighting a flood of spam at present, so pretty much everything is moderated, and I have to disable my spam filter to approve posts. It's quite a battle.

Hopefully you found the answer to this in the Simon FAQ:

The data is stored in a folder within your Application Support folder. The preferences are stored in your Preferences folder, naturally. The locations are as follows, where "~" means your home directory:

"~/Library/Application Support/Dejal/Simon/"
"~/Library/Preferences/com.dejal.simon.plist".

I did end up finding that, thanks! I've upgraded to 3.x Platinum in the move, as well.

By the way, you might check out Mollom for spam control. I've found it effective for several Drupal installations.
