I was hoping this would create a single PDF file for each single Word document, but it doesn't. It basically automates Word's "Save as PDF" which has the problem that it creates separate files for separate sections (e.g., a portrait orientation document with a single page in landscape format will be three PDFs).
Other than that it seems to work fine, and there may be people who really benefit from this app. Not me unfortunately...

I must have spent thousands on Acrobat Pro over the years... still, the Mac version is far from feature parity with Windows. This is especially aggravating since there is no "Standard" version for the Mac, only "Pro".

To anyone who has seen version 11 for the Mac:
Does the Microsoft Office to PDF conversion now work as expected (meaning, does it include clickable hyperlinks and other meta information)? or is it still just a glorified wrapper around "Print to PDF"?

@Ecad2: "Save As > PDF" is Microsoft's way to call up the Apple PDF subsystem. Acrobat installs an Automator script that you can get to from "Print > PDF > Save As Adobe PDF". But in version X that just creates simple PDFs. And just like the Apple PDF, if you change page orientation within the Word document (for example, you may have one page with landscape orientation), it creates a separate PDF for each of those sections. That can be quite annoying, and so I always switch to a virtual Machine with Word 2010 and use Microsoft's built-in "Save as PDF" which understands both links, tables of content, etc., and creates only one PDF per Word file regardless of how many tables I have... (no Adobe software harmed in the making of the PDF). I was hoping things might be improved in the new Acrobat but seems I'm not missing much.

Singlemizer is stable and fairly speedy, and finds true duplicates only.

This doesn't mean it's perfect. So that you know what to expect, these are my gripes (not show stoppers, mind you, otherwise this wouldn't rate it four stars):

1) Singlemizer is not exactly easy to use, unless you know answers to "what is the UTI for a jpeg image", for example (???? - that's what I thought). A few more sliders and popup lists would be helpful.

2) Singlemizer is not fully keyboard controllable (setting the delete checkmark on individual files still needs the mouse).

3) Singlemizer compares files only. There's no option to compare contents of folders and delete the folder only if it's exactly the same as another folder. Or, if there is such an option, I have no idea how to use it.

4) For every file, the console logs "file access by '/rsrc' was deprecated in 10.4". I'm thinking scanning would be faster without that warning.

But overall, the price is right and it surely beats some of the other options I've tried, especially when comparing a large number of files (10,000 or more).

This is actually a review of version 1.1. As of 1.1, VirusBarrier Express is now officially useless ("will scan for Mac OS X malware only").

Be careful when upgrading from 6.5 to 6.5.1. Apimac has changed the registration scheme, and now requires a key file instead of (or in addition to?) the license number. They will give you a code to get the key file for free, but you have to contact support and it's an inconvenience.

Thanks for making this available for free. I'm always getting confused between iOS and Mac scrolling. Luckily, that's fixed in Lion. Until then, this little program will help out.

It would be great if it was possible to hide the menu bar icon, but hey - it's free.
