I left this message on the Apparent Software forum, however (like many indigenous peoples!) it disappeared without comment. If anyone knows the answer, I would greatly appreciate it. -- First of all, I have to say I like some of your software, particularly Blast; it's the kind I would like to support. I noticed that Apparent Software is based in Israel, apparently run by Americans who emigrated there. Outraged by what I saw happened in Gaza last year, I am currently supporting the Boycott/Divestment/Sanctions movement. I am also rather alarmed by the ethnic cleansing which seems to be integral to the state since its founding. However, I do not believe in collective punishment. My government has done some immoral things which I renounce, so I wouldn't want anyone to boycott me thinking I support such evil acts. I have Israeli friends who fully and frankly acknowledge the immorality of ethnic discrimination and work hard to correct the mistakes that have been made, supporting the right of Palestinian refugees to return and also equal rights for all. I wouldn't think of boycotting them. I would like to know if the management of Apparent Software fits into this category, or if they accept tacitly or explicitly support the injustice being done in their name. Thank you kindly!

Yeah, Trickster 3.0 now with Mojave design – I love it! And for those really ;) experienced Mac Pros: Trickster is something like the modern version of legendary and unbeatable "Super Boomerang" 30 years ago which reliably "remembered" everything opened on the Mac…

2.8 fixed the memory issue for me, which I only noticed with Mojave. It seems so strange that all apps have 'File/Open Recent' but Finder does not.

Next to App Tamer, Trickster is one of my "hidden champions" on the Mac, which makes my daily work a lot easier and I don't want to miss. Highly recommended!

It took me a while to wrap my head around Trickster at first, but now I use it all the time. I love having all the recent files of my choosing accessible from one consistent place in the menubar. I never have to think about where to look for files now. Helpful and friendly developers as well. Part of my macOS EDC.

I have tried to remove the pop up menu from my start up screen. I have trashed all app information and still no luck. I wrote to the company several times and they still refuse to respond to my request. How do I remove this pop up menu item?

Hello,

We do reply to support requests and I wonder when you have written to us and we haven't responded? How did you try to reach us? The best way is to start a new discussion at http://apparentsoft.tenderapp.com/discussion/new.

As a heads up to people not aware, OS X (SL anyway) has a "Recent Items" menu option: Apple->Recent Items which gives access to recently used applications, documents and servers. Not dissing this software in any way (I assume it is more powerful than the native option); just letting folks know what is natively available.

And if you use Path Finder, there's a Recent Documents folder in the sidebar. But neither one will show downloaded or saved files until AFTER they've been opened.

I often lose track of recently-downloaded files or files saved from applications. That's why I'm going to try Trickster.

DFX helps by saving files to folders I've pre-selected as default for certain apps, but when I save files from other apps or to different locations I may lose track of them. Trickster should be able to show them wherever they are.
