What is Chimp for Mac

Features:

  • Document-wide searching
  • Document-wide printing
  • Editable bookmarks

What's new in Chimp

Version 1.1:
  • Export to PDF (10.4 only)
  • Spotlight indexing

As it is discontinued and you can't register... $5 is nothing for something that is useful (I wanted to buy it too but as of now I can't) Use this to register: Name:Santa Claus SN:Chimp-R80R-0100-3M53-0052-202F

The company who makes this appears, very unfortunately, to be defunct. From the spherasoft Website: To everyone looking for SpheraSoft: I don't know what happened to SpheraSoft, nor do I know how to contact them. Black Ring obtained their IP a few months ago. I would assume the company has dissolved. Please understand that I can not help you with your programs or serial numbers. -Nace 1-17-08

I have paid the $4.95 for the program today 2-3-08. I have a serial number to activate it, and I can't find a place to download it now. The site and company appear to be gone. Does anyone have any idea where I might be able to find a copy? I have tried to contact esellerate (whom I made my payment through) and we'll see where this goes. I just want copy of the program i can activate. Can anyone help me out with this?

I have been unable to contact the developer. On my Intel system at least, I can't use the search function. Furthermore, I have not heard back from the developer in about four weeks on the issue of not being able to export to PDF after registering the application.

The only thing that this app could benefit from is numbering pages or titling them when printing or exporting. That aside, about 6 minutes after downloading I registered. It did EXACTLY what I wanted with no extraneous clicking and sorting and setting options and messing around. A large CHM file was exported to PDF (1000+ pages) in little under a minute. That same thing would have taken me days using other solutions I tried. Well done!

Had a problem applying the registration code in 10.4.2 but a couple of e-mails later the guys at Sphera mailed me a fixed version. Works like a charm. Beats the pants off CHM Viewer and Chmox (slow, no search, no export to pdf). Nice work Shawn, great support and a great app.

It works like a charm on my Mac (2xG5, Tiger). I missed this important feature .CHM -> PDF and vuala! here it is!!! I only miss a way to enlarge the Courier font, specially in .chm dedicated to programming, where the Courier listings are so frequent. It would be great to have some preferences where to select the size of default (?) fonts... Great update, faster than the previous. Anyway, Chimp is far away from Chmox, CHM Viewer, and Xchm. It has find, it is more robust and faster launching...

hmm... you better off making this donationware I think. With the free alternatives out there + what this is for, I doubt many people would pay for it. Or maybe I'm just cheap :P
