I Installed ForgetMeNot 1.2.2 and opened Mail. When I clicked on Preferences, it crashed. I reopened Mail and created a new message. When I hit send, it crashed again. I uninstalled ForgetMeNot at ~/Library/Mail/Bundles/ForgetMeNot.mailbundle, restarted Mail and now Preferences works properly. Interestingly, when I click on >> at the end of Preferfences, version 1.2.2 is still installed and when I create a message that includes the word Attachment, ForgetMeNot reminds me that I need to attach something. It appears ForgetMeNot now resides in /Library/Mail/Bundles/ForgetMeNot.mailbundle.

I received an email from Apple concerning this update but it didn't show up under the Software Update menu. I wonder why?

No I don't. I just like keeping my MacBook Pro up-to-date.

I have been a very satisfied user of Synk Standard 6 for several years to maintain a bootable backup. I downloaded and installed Synk Pro 7 last night. Overnight, it finally finished its rebuild of a bootabl backup on the extrnal drive. It now continuously checks for changes in just seconds and then goes dormant. I even tried ejecting the external disk without turning off Synk and it handled it smoothly. It was even able to remount the external disk by just turning the script off and then back on. I am truly impressed! I have no connection to the developer except being a very satisfied user.

I would really like to read opinions of how the software works from people who have tried the new StuffIt Deluxe 12.0, rather than from those who are offering criticisms of the company or the pricing.

Opal, an OS X update to Acta, has some nice additional features and works as expected. Import of OPML permits translation of a number of other formats to Opal. It doesn't have the extensive feature set of OmniOutliner or TAO, but then, some of us taking notes just want something simple and easy that works fast. Opal does this.

Now that TAO can import MORE documents, it has become the best outliner currently on the market. Its import of outlines is flawless, including comments, formatting, page breaks, etc., unlike OmniOutliner, which just brings in the basic outline and comments. Its structure is somewhat more cumbersome than MORE was (and still is, under Classic); its style sheets take a bit of practice to master.

The comments about it being only a beta are a bit unfair. The changes made between updates are just that - updates with significant improvements. See VueScan for the way it should be done. This is a worthwhile outliner.
