Re: OT: YJ vs Notebook

2008-05-23 Thread Jan Erik Moström

John [EMAIL PROTECTED] 08-05-22 13.08



Does anyone have any opinions on how YJ compares to Notebook from
Circus Ponies? I like YJ and since Notebook is $20 more than YJ, I
haven't tried it. Just wondering if anyone else here has, and can
comment on how the two compare.


I use both, Yojimbo to me is that drawer where you put all the 
stuff you might need sometime ... or not. Notebook is a place 
where you can write longer pieces of text, take meeting notes, 
etc --- in short a notebook.


None of them is perfect for everything and even put together 
they don't cover everything I need (you got to add BBEdit, Yep, 
BibDesk and Skim for that)

Eric Hamburg [EMAIL PROTECTED] 08-05-18 09.20


Anyone know how to fix this?


I'm not sure ... I haven't tried this on my own machine ;-) but 
without having Yojimbo running see if you have a file


/Users/YOU/Library/Application Support/Yojimbo/.ContentIndex.lock

and/or

/Users/YOU/Library/Application Support/Yojimbo/.Yojimbo.lock

They are not normally visible so you need to use the terminal or 
tell Finder to list hidden files (or tell Path Finder to list 
hidden files). If you move these files to another place, does 
that help?

Would you mind sharing that script source for educational 
purposes (as an ex-windows users i had not had a lot of time 
investigating AppleScript for my day to day actions, i am 
missing a good entry point...)


OK, I'll translate the script (comments are in Swedish) and

OK, here is the script which might look way more complicated 
than necessary ... and it is.


A plain bare bones script can be found here

http://www.mostrom.pp.se/cs/Applescript/JournlerToMarsEdit

The one I actually use can be found here

http://www.mostrom.pp.se/cs/Applescript/JournlerToMarsEditComplicated

but if you want to look at the last one I recommend that you 
read http://www.mostrom.pp.se/2008/04/18/nerdy-blogging/ to 
make sense of why I've made things so complicated.

I have investigated all of those, with mixed results. Journler is
dropping blog support. Plus their blog support is basically to
export to ecto, and then re-edit in ecto. I hate doing the same
thing over and over again. :-)


I've been in a slightly similar situation but instead of Yojimbo 
(which for me is a box for various information) I use 
Journler. For various reasons (I'm doing some custom tag 
translation) I use an applescript to send the entry from 
Journler to MarsEdit which I only use to post the entry - 
nothing else (for this blog at least).


A similar solution could be done using Yojimbo which would allow 
to post an entry from Yojimbo to your blog using MarsEdit/Ecto 
with one single shortcut - you would actually never have to do 
anything at all in MarsEdit/Ecto. (and you can add all kind of 
custom actions/tagging)

Re: How to store links in Yojimbo

2008-04-09 Thread Jan Erik Moström

Krzysztof M. [EMAIL PROTECTED] 08-04-08 15.29

This part of menu is only active when you click inside the note 
or highlight some portion of the text inside the note to make 
it hyperlinked. So that why I am asking is it any different way 
to store file links inside Yojimbo separately not as a pointer 
inside the note? For example SOHO Notes does it pretty well.


I don't know if this is what you want to do but ...

+   Create a bookmark in Yojimbo
+   Select the file you want link and drag it to the Location field
+   Add file:// to the beginning of the location field

(And you could make an applescript that do this so you only drag 
 drop on the applescript to get the link)

Re: On Yojimbo and Time Machine

Rhet Turnbull [EMAIL PROTECTED] 08-02-14 15.09


Then again, Yojimbo's habit of storing
everything in a monolithic database has been one of my (few) critiques
since Yojimbo was released.


Curious, why is this bad?


I hope that BareBones and/or Apple gets this fixed soon. Requiring
the user to have two separate backup plans is unacceptable.


Hmmm, I would always be skeptical of a backup solution that runs 
on live data.

Re: Scrapping Synced libraries and starting over?

At this point I can no longer recommend Yojimbo (previously my
favorite application) and I strongly urge anybody who has not yet
upgraded to 1.5 to hold off upgrading until the problems have been
solved.


I'm not sure that it's Yojimbo that is at fault, there have been 
some problems with .Mac syncing in general (personally I have a 
number of sync conflicts in some of the apps, I don't which 
ones, I sync but when I try to get it resolved there is nothing 
to be resolved ... ).

Ah, but the problem (for us) with that is that we want to share
calendars  contacts, so separate accounts are no good.


What we do in our house is cross-publish calendars. I tried all 
sorts of evil tricks to allow my calendars to be multi-writer, 
and they never worked out.


Same here, we publish some of our calendars to a server and 
subscribe to each other - not perfect but it has worked well for 
the last year or so.

Not on my machines (2) when using Spaces. It only shows in Space 1

OK, sorry. I now understand why it works on my machine. Forget

2) If I check Allow Yojimbo to use the Keychain..., but NOT
Automatically view encrypted items, Yojimbo never asks for my
password. Not after I log out and back in again, not ever after a
restart of my Mac.


If I've understtod it Yojimbo reads the password from the 
keychain so as long as it's unlocked ...


But I would also like to see a unlock for X minutes feature

How do you remove default Collections, such as Serial Numbers 
and Passwords -- I never use them and they just take up 
Collection space.


Select which ones you want to show using the cog wheel at the 
bottom of the list.

Only being curious but how many tag collections/collections does
other users have (especially the developers would be
interesting because they are so against having a structure
through folders or smart tag-collections in smart
tag-collections).


normally 300 - 600 items, 0 collections, 10 tag collection, 0
