Not sure if I'm missing something, but when this is in menubar mode, I can see no way of quitting it, short of using Activity Monitor

Like any other Mac app too - simply hit cmd+Q

That was the whole point: command Q didn't work

This may be a useful application for someone, but not for me. I should have tried it before I bought the license.

Since it uses the file's path information instead of storing the file itself, if I change the file name or move the file to a different location, myDocuments loose the file information and I need to delete it and add it again which is very frustrating.

So this does not work for a person like me who organizes files from time to time after uploaded to this application. Finder is good enough.

This is one of those cute and useful apps which does nothing you can't do in the Finder or with a combination of other apps and utilities, but does it much more elegantly and quickly. It is a real timesaver and aid to getting more organized, and it is so well priced that really everyone should have it.

To the dev: thanks for adding OpenMeta and the batch import.

I don't believe the cost is twelve dollars, it's twelve euros, which today is closer to 16 bucks.

I am reevaluating v 1.4 now and the new Quick Look implementation is definitely welcome. I appreciate the developer's responsiveness on this issue

It seems that they have done what I have unfortunately also to do, writing an own view with its own QL - something I really don't like to do…

I would love to have a shortcut for closing the QL window - unfortunately Apple does not offer that for such a window opened within a third-party app (I am still searching for a solution :-)

I'd played a while with openmeta - I'd rather would like to find a way to directly talk to spotlight :-)

(btw. my goal is always to create very simple tools and I assume that 90 to 98 % of persons who will use this small tool even don't know what that is or will need it)

How do Yep and Leap handle opening and closing the quicklook window? Those two seem to work just fine when using the spacebar! Do have a look please.

I have wanted an app like this for a long time and this makes a decent attempt, but I do have some complaints.

First, it strikes me as rather asinine to use the Sparkle framework and still force me to go to your webpage to download an update, particularly when the developer has released 3 updates in less than 2 weeks.

It is rather frustrating that the app seems to lack a key command to close the Quick Look window.

Tagging would be much more useful is the developer would implement OpenMeta.
