"Legacy label color painting for OS X 10.9"

Yes! Thanks for that.
[Version 0.19]

Just installed this on my late 2013 iMac with Mavericks 10.9.1 installed – no more startup chime.

There is a slight crackle at startup, but nothing that would upset anyone in your favourite coffee shop. Make mine a double-shot mocha.

Oh sure, I'll be the one to say 'LOVE IT!". My previous comments stand.

Thanks for updating this for CC.

Apparently "fseventer (as of Oct 2013) does run in osx 10.9 Mavericks. (In earlier developer previews it would not run due to a Apple code signing requirement bug.)".

So that's good news!

Yes, I use LittleSnitch but feel much better for using TCPBlock at the same time. Excellent app.

Hmm, at the time of writing the 'What's New' notes for v9.1 don't show anything but the generic sales spiel for CC (ie stuff that was 'new' when CC was first released) and the 'complete release notes' link is no better.

So what's new in v9.1?

More 'Hundreds of bug fixes'. Must be one heck of a buggy app.

I'll go with Donmontalvo's suggestion below.

Does the job, but what a CPU hog! I watched it for a while with Activity Monitor and it peaked at 97.5% at times, slowing down everything else I do, including typing this msg.

Not sure if it's a feature or a bug, but from my POV it needs to be addresses pretty urgently.

Just a bit worried about the disclaimer on Jo's website: 'This is a beta version, things may not work as expected.', but I'll give it a go.

My star rating is for the stable v2.1 and may well increase once v3 is out of beta, because it seems to tick all the missing boxes.

I've said it before but I'll say it again. Great bit of software I'd be happy to pay some money for should that time ever come. No issue with damaged files, no unexpected password requests, no problems installing or running.

I was using v4.6.2 and had enabled the "Enable Finder-click (choose a folder by clicking on its Finder window)" option just like I always have it enabled, but it doesn't seem to work, instead selecting the Finder every time I clicked in an open folder window where I want to save a file to.

So I've gone back to v4.6.1 and everything is sweet again.

Anyone else with this little problem?

Just installed v4.6.3 and that solve my problem. Thanks to the devs for sorting this out.

v1.0 doesn't seem to play nice with Finderpop anymore. I get windows opening on their own and without tabs when I select a sub folder from the sidebar via Finderpop.

Never had a problem with the pre-v1.0 versions.

You may wonder why I post this here. I simply refuse to jump through Twitter/Facebook/etc hoops to get a 'bug' report to the dev, but that's how the dev's set up the reporting system. Here's hoping my msg will be read anyway.

Oh, excuse me, Dr Win. I thought that perhaps the 'Support' menu item at your website would be the one to click to report a possible bug.

It takes me to http://support.binaryage.com/ and when I complete a report and follow *all* the prompts and answer all the questions, I end up with this


And the very same happens when I try your suggested 'getsatisfaction.com/binaryage' link.

Kobalt replied on 28 Sep 2010
But having said all that, I do really like your app! :)

At the time of writing, the download link address is incorrect - there's a dot missing.

This is the right address


ADMIN, please remove this msg when the link's been fixed.

Okay, problem solved. A restart did the trick. Well, I should have tried that to begin with ... duh!

After installing 'trash' I had no option but to either accept or reject 'immediate deletion'. I have deleted 'trash' again, but I still get this insistent choice when I hit cmd+del. How do I get back to the situation prior to installing 'trash' when I could just move files to the trash folder with that key combo for later 'real' deletion?

Thanks for the suggestion, but I seem to not have made myself quite clear. I turned off the annoying warning you're referring to the very moment I installed OSX.
Prior to installing and using 'trash' I could move files to the trash and they'd just sit there until I chose to empty the trash. Now whenever I want to move something to the trash, I am advised that it will be deleted immediately, ie I cannot just have it sit there anymore until I am ready to empty the trash. Clearly this means that if I accidentally move anything to the trash now, I have no way of pulling it out anymore.
I want to go back to the status I had prior to installing/using 'trash'. How do I go about doing that?
