thanks, jim. i really appreciate this.


No problem. After thinking about it a bit I realized it was something
I could use myself.


the more i think about this issue, i realize that there are many
documents i will need to change. in fact, for me, it will be
essentially every document that i import as such, going forward,
it's going to be quite a bit of extra work to manually change the
dates of each document that i import.


True. This script is best suited to making a few isolated corrections.

Ideally, you'd like each newly imported Yojimbo item to inherit the
creation and modification dates of the Finder file it was imported
from, correct? I think it would be feasible to write an import script
that uses this script's code to automatically adjust the date of each
imported item.


so, to the yojimbo developers: will you consider adding, as a
preference, the ability to inherit the creation dates of imported
documents?


If there's any indication that this is in the pipeline, I won't bother
writing another script.

Anyway, I did issue a minor update to the script yesterday that just
performs a bit more validation on the format of the date text you
enter.

Re: Reset all sync?

Is there any way for me to *really* reset all sync? I have used  
the .Mac preferences to reset .Mac using data from one machine, but  
the other machines I use don't seem to honor the reset. They keep

something to get everything back in sync using one machine as the  
canonical source to begin with.


I think Syncrospector is your friend. It's either included in the  
developer tools or you can download it independently as ADC-member  
(the free membership is enough for that) I'm not that sure about that.

Here it is: http://anoved.net/2007/05/backdate-yojimbo-import.html

When you run the script, it'll present a file browser. Choose the
files you want to import. They'll be automatically backdated with
the creation and modification dates of the actual files after they're
imported. (As with the other script, you'll still need to restart
Yojimbo before the corrected dates are visible.)

Based on a bit more testing it seems that it is safe to edit backdated
items before restarting Yojimbo. The modification date will be
changed, of course, but the creation date will be untouched.
Nevertheless, I still feel obliged to warn that these scripts use
unsanctioned methods to do their deeds!

Let me know how it goes.
Jim
