IMPORTANT NOTE:This Workstrip download is made available as a convenience only for customers who previously purchased a license from Softchaos, Ltd.

Workstrip is not for sale, and is not supported. We cannot issue new license keys, nor find a missing license key.

Workstrip development was discontinued when Softchaos went out of business. Although the product appears to have had a loyal following, it was a small following.

Various customers have suggested that we release the source code. We are not opposed to the idea, however, the product was unfortunately not implemented in Objective C, and would be of almost no use more...

What's New

Version 3.2.3 was apparently the final maintenance update that addressed an issue encountered under certain configurations when running under Rosetta on Intel-based Macs.

Requirements

Mac OS X 10.2 or later

Softchaos was bought out by illumineX, inc. They are going to be further developing Webtractor and Yoink, but no word about Workstrip.

I have reviewed and tried every other app out there as a replacement for Workstrip and NONE, absolutely NONE, are near the level of work production that Workstrip provides. It will be a sad day when Workstrip ceases working for me altogether as it so comprehensive in nature it should be part of the Mac OS system.

Can anyone help me with WorkStrip? I just updated my iMac PPC G5 (not Intel) to Leopard (10.5.4) and updated the WorkStrip to 3.2.3. version. It is working ok, but the instant preview is not instant but buried under "More..." option in the contextual menu. I have not seen anyone mention this in the previous comments and I did see that a few people have PPC and are running Leopard so I guess it is working for them.
Any help is appreciated. I use Workstrip primarily for instant preview option. I know Leopard has some preview options through Cover Flow but I deal with a lot of graphics files (AI, PSD, IND, EPS etc) for which Cover Flow does not work. I also like the option of previewing a file without going through a Finder window.
Any help is greatly appreciated.

Thanks

I have just spoken by telephone to Gary at Illuminex, and, unfortunately there are no plans to re-release Workstrip or update it, The reasons are largely technical, the way it was written originally, and a perceived lack of demand.

I wanted a second licence key to enable me to run two copies on the same network, but he is unable to generate this.

In these circumstances, is anyone willing to share theirs with me? (7/30/2008, Version: 3.2.3)

Utterly disheartening and I hope they make it open source to allow someone else the potential to continue development of Workstrip since Workstrip is more at home with Leopard that any other previous Mac OS.

SoftChaos has been bought-out by illumineX, inc! Look for the apps to be revised soon. Webstractor is coming back on line too!

I too am a long-time user of WorkStrip.

I have been using 3.2.2 on a PowerBook, but now I have a new MacBook Pro. Anyone have a copy of 3.2.3 that you can send me?

I found an archive of the file, version 3.2.3, and have uploaded it to the MacUpdate server, it is now available via the 'Download Now' link on the MacUpdate page for WorkStrip.

It actually works under Leopard! So far I have had no issues. Using it on a PPC Dual G5 with 10.5.

another huge fan here. sorry the company is no longer in business. should any of the original developers read this: firstly, I hope you've on to do other fun stuff. secondly, any chance of releasing the source-code? workstrip is to wonderful to let is disappear.

As a huge fan of Workstrip I am sorry to see that it has disappeared. I see no substantiation about the circumstance of how SoftChaos disappeared, just hearsay.

There is no "time bomb" as version 3.2.3 was made for Intel and version 3.2.2 made PPC. So it you moved to the Intel version that is where the issue occurs if you are running a PPC.

Since Leopard has what I am looking for in the way of Workstrip's replacement I am simply waiting out Leopard's release as my version of Workstrip works with no problem.
