Introducing Simon 5!

Simon version 5 is now available. 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 is a paid upgrade from Simon 4. Purchasers since September 1, 2020 automatically get a version 5 license (that also works in previous versions).

Read the Simon What's New page for details.

Bug in Success?

I think I found a bug in the Service Result/Custom Error section.

If you accidentally rename a line's Customer Error Description to "Success" and you already have one called "Success", you then can no longer change the Custom Error Description or even delete the line. You're stuck with two "Success" lines.

It looks like the code that disallows the deleting/changing of "Success" should allow it, as long as there will be at least one "Success" line remaining after the delete/change.

Re: Bug in Success?

Yes, I can see how that issue would arise. I think I just look for that description when figuring out whether or not to allow deletion, but as you say, it should be smarter than that.

Thanks for the bug report; I'll fix that for the next release.
