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.

GUI Dialog Boxs too LONG...

Some of the GUI dialog boxes are too long, in that they go off the bottom of my screen.

There are no scroll-bars to get access to the parts of the dialog boxes that are below the bottom of my screen.

Granted, I am running on an older G4, with a lower-res screen, but this needs to be fixed before I will be ready to purchase.

Re: GUI Dialog Boxs too LONG...

Yes, they can get a little too long for smaller screens. Which is why each section includes a disclosure triangle: toggle some sections to hide them and thus reduce the height.

In a future version (after 2.6) I plan to redesign the UI to avoid this issue. I have some mockups in a private Simon Testers forum; people who are keen to see the future direction of Simon, are willing to keep the information strictly confidential, and are willing to provide feedback, should contact me to request access.

GUI Dialog Boxes too LONG...

Yeah, but even if you close all the other areas down, you can still get too many notification items on that list to be able to see the bottom of the box...

Thanks, I'm a paid user now..
