Recently Clouds menubar icon shows a weird behaviour. It places itself above the menubar of the current application, if the menubar gets to short on my 13" Macbook.

See the following screenshot:

Happens frequently. Quitting and restarting Cloud helps shortly, but eventually the behaviour reoccurs.

None of the other menubar apps I have installed does this, so I assume it must be related to Cloud.

Has anyone else seen or experienced this?

Giving the app a 5-star rating nonetheless for its otherwise supreme functionality and hoping for a fix.

Good app!

The only thing I'm missing is a means of reactivating an autostopped app via clicking its dock icon.

Autostopped apps can only be reactivated an via CMD-Tab or Expose (or via ATs Application Manager UI or the Menubar Dropdown).

Unless I'm missing something.

Please consider to integrate dock reactivating if at all possible.

Thanks Christian for pointing this out.

Reactivating apps via their dock icon sometimes works and sometimes doesn't.

I don't have any 3rd party apps installed that modify the dock (at least none that I know of) except maybe XtraFinder. And I haven't noticed my dock crashing recently (though one might not notice if the dock's hidden).

I'll keep monitoring this behaviour of AT anyway and will post any findings I might come across.

Don't leave home without it... in other words: don't set up your email client without it.

My SpamSieve stats below tell it all. In fact through the automatic training it recently went up to 100%. I can't even recall the last time I found a SPAM message in my inbox folder.

Question: I might be going from Entourage 2008 to Postbox 3.X. Does SpamSieve work with PB 3.X.? The above requirements (and on your website) only list Postbox 2.0 as being compatible. Thanks.

Oh, and additional question: If I move to Postbox can I keep using the SpamSieve Corpus that already has been trained by Entourage?

I would love to love this app as it's such a versatile tool.

However on my Pre-Unibody MBP with 10.6.8 Launchbar periodically spikes up on CPU-Usage to a point where the CPU-Temp reaches alarming values of up to 100°C and the fans kick in at full throttle.

This occurs every 10 minutes or so and lasts for a few minutes. I can tell LB is the culprit by checking Activity Monitor. Needless to say that I quit LB after a while. With every update I had hopes that this behaviour might stop but it hasn't.

Has anyone else seen this behaviour with LB?

Hi Cgc,

Thanks for your reply.

I had a feeling this has something to do with indexing. I just invoked a manual indexing and the CPU usage of LB spikes up to 100% and beyond for 5-6 mins.

I went through all indexing rules and reset most of them to weekly indexing and some of them to daily indexing. Most were set to automatic indexing once a file/folder was altered so indexing apparently kept going in an endless loop. I also exludeded more folders from indexing in rules. Apparently it was set to index my entire user folder.

Will observe the results. So far CPU spikes by LB seem to not occur as often as before.

Excellent app. Works as advertised.

One question: I have some "selfmade" apps in my Application folder. How can I exclude these from the list, not just marking them "Don't check for updates" but keep them off the list for good?

And a request: Add a "Notes" field in the Lower "Version-Info" pane where one could add own individual notes to specific apps, such as "This is a paid update", "Previous version works better", or similar.

Hmmmh, all of the sudden stopped working properly again on 10.6.8.

No matter what search term I enter, I always get a translation list with 21 items starting with:

"umpteen also: umpsteen adj. [coll.]"

and ending with:

"extending over several weeks"

Same list on all languages. Anyone else having this behaviour?

Any chance of making a new Folder via keyboard-shortcut "Shift-Command-N" available in XtraFinder?

I'm just so used to this command and miss it a lot.

Or do I miss something? The command "Option Command-N" for making an intelligent folder is there, but not for a regular folder.

Other than that great finder addition and very stable.

Thanks!

Thx for your prompt reply, Tran Ky Nam.

Weird. The "New Folder" shortcut (and menu item for that matter) wasn't available when I posted my initial question above.

However, I restarted Finder and then restarted XtraFinder and the menu item is now available and consequently the shortcut "Shift-Command-N" now works just fine.

Issue solved.

Marvellous little gem. Works flawlessly, no hickups whatsoever and no noticeable load on the CPU (like some other 3rd party background processes).

Particularly like the cross-browser capabilities and the fact that _all_ cookies (flash cookies, silverlight-cookies, tracking-cookies and databases) can be managed within one single interface.

Here's a feature request to the dev ;-)
Can we have a 'mark all'/'unmark all' button at the bottom beneath the single cookie checkboxes. Would take the hassle of clicking each cookie individually.

Oh and any chance of adding Opera?

Thanks.

Thanks. I found the check/uncheck menu (didn't cross my mind to try a rightclick). Perfect.

No prob about Opera. I heard that they do lots of things differently under the hood.

From the subtitle: "For all Mac users introduced in 2012"

As in: Born this year and got my first MacBook to play with in my craddle.

Or: If you buy a Mac we'll introduce you to... whomever.

I figured it's the the devs that post their updates here on MacUpdate, so I was actually making (or trying to make if you prefer) fun of Apple and not MacUpdate.

As for the typo: thanks for pointing out. Never wrote that word before and probably (?) won't ever again, since English is not my first language.

Is the 3.0.0 version a free or paid upgrade?

I can't find an upgrade listing from 2.2.0 to 3.0.0 on your Kagi store, just the regular license.

Great utility btw.
