With the new Apple Silicon Macs bringing great speed paired with long battery life it’s time for us to update more of our products for Apple’s great new architecture. Here’s some news for DEVONagent, DEVONsphere Express, and EasyFind. We are also updating DEVONthink To Go with bug fixes and preparations for the arrival of version 3.0. (more)
Did you know that we have freeware too? This week we’ve updated EasyFind and PhotoStickies for macOS Catalina, added dark mode support, and more.
EasyFind 5.0 now uses modern APIs for compatibility, features new optional columns, and lets you search for names, tags, contents, or comments. The nerds among you will like the new support for regular expressions. (more)
New season, new releases. For this autumn we have prepared updates for our freeware apps ThumbsUp and XMenu as well as for DEVONthink To Go for you. (more)
XMenu’s user-defined menu allows you to build you very own menu extra menu. You just have to add your own documents, apps, or scripts to its
Custom folder. In XMenu’s Preferences first check the User-Defined option to make the menu appear. Right-click this menu, which appears with a gear icon, to quickly show its folder. It is always named
Custom. Add and remove files to or from this folder to customize the menu’s content to your needs. (more)
If you find yourself needing to mount remote volumes fairly often, here’s handy way to do it from XMenu’s User-Defined menu instead of littering your Desktop with aliases.
First things first… in XMenu’s Preferences, you’ll need the User-Defined menu On. Also, you’ll need to mount a remote volume or machine and ideally be showing drive icons on your desktop. (more)
Sometimes writing AppleScripts is monotonous. You end up typing the same thing over and over again. To this end we can buy a snippet organizer or we could use XMenu to assist. Here are two ideas to speed things up: … (more)
You may not really think about it, but under-the-hood of each XMenu icon is a simple Finder folder. This means you can create subfolders within these folders to help organize the menu contents. (more)
Just a quick note that we have just updated our freeware apps EasyFind and XMenu. Personally I like especially XMenu’s new Snippets menu that allows me to store text snippets and URLs and quickly insert them into a new email message or any other text I am writing.
Right in time for spring here in the US and in Europe we’ve done some traditional spring cleaning and prepared a few updates for you:
DEVONsphere Express 1.9.1 brings performance-related improvements and works better with the AFPS filesystem. It now also searches text in PDF annotations and forms, handles ePub books better, and improves finding related websites. Auto-completing search terms makes typing queries more comfortable. (more)
We have already updated DEVONthink popup: true and DEVONagent popup: true with the necessary adjustments for OS X Yosemite. Today we’ve released DEVONsphere Express 1.8 popup: true as well as new versions of PhotoStickies popup: true and XMenu popup: true. DEVONsphere 1.8 adds support for Finder and Open Meta tags, Scapple files, and diagnostic reports. It also uses Open Graph properties of HTML pages and web pages to provide more accurate results. On OS X Mavericks and later version 1.8 indexes email messages again. The update also reduces DEVONsphere Express’ CPU usage and improves its performance and reliability. (more)
