First of all, Skim is a great application and, as far as I know, the only real workaround for the ClearScan bug in OSX (owing to the native PDFKit only supporting PDF version 1.5) that turns any searchable text in ClearScan PDFs into commas and periods. For that reason, it is invaluable to me, as ClearScan allows me to shrink crappy pdf scans from my professors into a much more manageable size, and improves readability immensely, especially when zoomed in. I love this program.

However, its built in auto-restore feature has never really cut it for me. At least for me, it only works when I launch skim directly, and not when I launch it from opening a pdf file. What is the rationale for this behavior? It's a huge pain to try to find every file I had open before, especially when doing research, or in the event of the OCCASIONAL crash. Disabling the Lion auto-restore feature is a step backward because of this. I understand some people prefer the Skim version of this feature, but is there any way future updates can allow us to choose between the 10.7 and the Skim approach? What is the advantage of keeping the built-in function?

Well, this is disappointing. After months of waiting for a bug fix, the application crashes on opening with the just-released 4.0.12 version. Don't get me wrong, I love Awaken; I just like it better when it works. Hopefully this a one step backwards, two steps forward kind of scenario...

Hey, yeah thanks for your help. Deleting the Awaken folder in the Users/Shared/ directory corrected your problem. Sorry it took me so long to respond, and thanks for your help!
