Quit Yojimbo.
Add the shorcts via System Preferences.
Re-launch Yojimbo.

I just added the following for testing:

New Bookmark - Command-Control-B
New Web Archive... - Command-Control-A

Well, not necessarily, there are all sorts of more likely  
explanations than arrogant programmers. Also, when you say 'what the  
user actually wants' you really mean 'what I and a few others here  
actually want' - I'm perfectly happy with the creation date as it is  
because it allows me to see when the entry was created in Yojimbo -  
in that sense, the creation date refers not to the source document,  
but to the new Yojimbo item. I do see your point, but this strikes me  
as overly harsh criticism.

-- that's a fact -- I've been there too many times myself to claim  
any different.



All fair enough, although I'd argue that these sort of issues should  
be thrashed out in the initial design process by Information  
Architects and Interface Designers in consultation with Programmers  
(and by reference to appropriate user research) - of course there is  
overlap in these roles but just to point out that this is not  
something that should be an issue for a programmers alone in a well  
resourced software house. This is why a good design process is so  
important, programmers in my experience rarely make great user  
interface designers (and I include in this the overall feature set  
and interaction principles, not just the GUI look and feel), of  
course there are exceptions like the Dave Watanabes of the world, but  
as a general rule you get the point!


Anyway, I feel we're drifting off-topic… ;o)

Re: Vanishing Information

2007-05-06 Thread Tom Gray

This is a follow up to my earlier Vanishing Information report.

Unfortunately and for some utterly unknown reason, I can make  
absolutely no changes to my Yojimbo database. Within moments of  
changing, editing or adding information the changes and new  
information disappear and the original documents remain.


This, I think, has something to do with Yojimbo trying to sync  
with .Mac. (Purely speculative.) I have .Mac syncing of Yojimbo  
disabled at the moment, so I am confused as to why this might be  
happening. Perhaps it is a permissions issue.


{The issue first manifested itself on an iBook which I use which was  
being sync'e, via .Mac, to my desk top machine. It has now migrated  
to my desk top machine.)


The net affect it that I am no longer able to use Yojimbo and will  
have to revert back to my previous database application.


Bizarre. If anyone can throw some ideas this way...

Hello,

I reported this type of problem a month ago on one of my machines  
and do not know the status. I have not had a chance to follow the  
threads in the forum. Please excuse me if this has been resolved or  
is under investigation.


I am having a problem on a second machine where information I enter  
into an existing note disappears _as I watch_ and is replaced by  
older information. I think this may be related to .Mac Sync. I  
suspect that a process is syncing the open file to an older one  
while it is open and being edited.


For example:

I have a note open with previous information.

I enter new information.

Within in a moment or two the note scrolls to the top of the note.

I search for the new information and it is not in the note. Instead  
the original text is in its place.


This is AMAZINGLY reproducible on this machine. In effect I have  
had to stop using Yojimbo as a consequence.



Other odd behavior. I have an alert icon in the menu bar notifying  
me that there is a .Mac Sync resolution error. However, Conflict  
Resolver will not run. It launches and hangs. As a consequence I am  
kind of stuck with some sort of sync error that I cannot resolve.  
I suspect that this might be causing Yojimbo to lose new  
information (revert back to a previous sync).


Just thought I would let you know.

Hang in there!
