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.

Localization issue?

using Simon with an OS X account that has french as main language, some 'buttons' are absent, e.g. Options and Notifiers 'buttons' when editing a test. (see attached Simon 002.png)
As a test, without logging off, I quit Simon, remove the Contents/Resources/fr.lproj and restart Simon, all 'buttons' appear (in english, of course). (see attached Simon 001.png)
It seems Contents/Resources/fr.lproj/TestEditor.nib is the culprit.
Having switched to english, I did no further tests in french, so it may be that other 'buttons' are missing.

PS: Simon 4.2, OS X 10.11.4 FWIW.

Re: Localization issue?

Hi Pascal,

The issue is fixed. The help is also currently being localized into French.
Please go on this page :
You will find a link to the current localized version of the Guide. Note that not all pages are localized. They will be updated all along the days until it's complete localization. The software integrated guide will be updated following the version release.
A link to a beta page will also be soon added. Stay tuned.
At least for any french speaker you can join us on the french forum here :
