Thanks to the developers for their helpful and quick reply to my problem. Fixed! A short read-me on installing would`ve been nice (for people like me who don`t really know what they`re doing!), but it definitely looks like I`m keeping Ghost after all.
[Version 1.1]

Added a couple folders to Ghost the first time I used it. Ticked the box for one to make it invisible. It worked straight away, no problem.

Decided I didn`t want one of the two folders in Ghost`s list, so I selected it and clicked `clear`. Both of the folders disapeared. The first is still hidden. Lucky it doesn`t contain anything I need right away!

But still, this is a problem for someone like me who`s never used a command-line interface and who is new to Macs.

I should state that this problem occurred on version 1.0. I don`t know if it`s better on 1.1 because when I clicked `Check for updates...` and clicked to install the new version, the update just froze. Computer still working at the time, but Activity Monitor showing Ghost`s CPU usage at around 99%. (The computer`s brand new and experiencing no other problems whatsoever.)

So I go to this page on MacUpdate, click the download button for version 1.1, and find that it just installs version 1.0. Thinking maybe they just didn`t update the `About Ghost` info, I click on `Check for updates...` again, and once again get the message that version 1.1 is available to install.

So it seems that the developers haven`t actually posted version 1.1 as advertised.

And now I need to know how to unhide that folder!

You can re-order both the lists and the items on the lists. I apologise for this mistake in my previous comment. (Is there no way for me to edit my original post?)

-Easy to use.
-Can mark items as important.

-If you don`t pay $5 for Checkmarker Plus, you can only create four lists.
-They don`t tell you this on the download page. It doesn`t help that the screenshot on the same page shows a Checkmarker with 5 lists. Furthermore, the download page only says the paid-for version "features new themes and export options", whereas the information button on the widget itself tells you to "buy it now to add unlimited number of pages..."
I hope this was just an innocent omission...
-Would be nice if you could re-order the lists, or individual items on particular lists.

I can see that this program would be really useful if you wanted to keep track of a small number of to-dos in a small number of lists. I don`t recommend it if, like me, you want to add reasonably long shopping lists or something like that.

I installed Ghost 1.0 a few months ago. It`s a good program, providing a simple way to hide particular folders and make them visible again when needed.

Unfortunately, I`ve been unable to install any update. 1.1 didn`t work, and 2.0 still won`t install. Same problem: dialog box says the program is installing and will restart but nothing happens, no matter how long I wait.

I hope the developer fixes this persistent problem before working on the next release!
