Trickster for Mac3.6

Quickly access recently used files.

What is Trickster for Mac

Trickster (was Blast) is a productivity booster application that places all recently used files at user's fingertips, providing him with a fast and easy access to them.

Trickster keeps track of all the files the user has been recently using on his Mac. With Trickster, all these documents are just one click away. The user can access the file list anytime by clicking on the application icon in the menu bar, and perform multiple actions on the files: open, preview, move and more.

What's new in Trickster

Version 3.6:
  • NEW: Add a preference to automatically scroll Trickster to top of the list and select top item after a period of inactivity or on every recall. Default is still to not do it, so that it defaults as in previous versions, unless changed in Preferences.
  • Allow vertical dragging motion to start dragging a file instead of selecting more files. This is probably the more common use for that motion. Multiple files can still be selected with Shift or Command clicking
  • Allow Trickster window to become smaller than it was
  • If the anchor option is set (not to close Trickster’s window), it’ll now reappear after dragging a file out of the window. Trickster disappears when dragging out so as not to cover a potential dragging destination. But it was not coming back previously, even of anchor option in the window titlebar was selected
  • “Open at cursor” option works correctly now when multiple screens are connected to the Mac
  • Fix showing Trickster window on the correct screen when Trickster icon in the menubar is clicked and Trickster is in the “attached to menubar” state
  • Add Hook icon to the collection of filter icons for custom filters
  • Fix filtering of tags that include Capital letter
  • Fix support for Hook version 2.2 and alter
  • Fix filter icon position on macOS version prior to Big Sur
  • Some fixes and improvements to tracking for new customers

Very handy for tracking recent files. Use it in combination with another great app called Workspaces and you really will have super-quick access to files you used to have to dig for.

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?

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.
