When Yojimbo first came out I thought the lack of nested folders was a  
limitation. It took me a while, but I'm fully converted to the tag it  
and dump it all in one place method of organizing, and Yojimbo is  
primarily responsible for helping me see the advantages.


Nested folders were once the best solution to organizing files on a  
computer, but now that we have very fast computers that can find  
things very quickly, the need for nested folders is going away. In  
fact, since we have such large hard drives that can store so many  
files, nested folders have begun to become a hindrance rather than a  
help in finding documents.


Here's an example of the now what folder did I put that in problem.  
In Mail I have _one_ folder in which I store the current year's sent  
and received messages. When I want to find a message, I can just  
search, usually by subject, sender, or recipient and find the message  
I want in a couple of seconds. I save tons of time over when I used to  
have bunches of folders in which I could store emails. My father still  
uses the bunches of folders method, and half the time when he goes to  
find an email he can't find it because he can't remember which folder  
he put it in.


Another thing I do to help me find files easily is giving them very  
descriptive file names, both in Yojimbo and in the Finder. For  
instance, a receipt from LL Bean might be named:


LL Bean - 2008.04.21 - Shirts for Spring

and tagged receipts. Or an article I downloaded from New Scientist  
might be named:


Do we read too much into our need for sleep? - being-human - 15 March  
2008 - New Scientist


and tagged appropriately. I'd say 80% of the time I search on a file  
name to find what I'm looking for. As  you noted, I think inertia  
keeps most people thinking they have to keep their file names under 32  
characters. My goal is to name files so that not only I know what's in  
them, but so that anyone that looked at a file on my computer would  
know what's in it based on the name. I believe that if people gave  
their files good descriptive names, the fuss about tagging vs. nested  
folders would nearly be a non-issue.


All IMHO of course.

I think it's irritating process just a bit and take a long time.  
Maybe someone can suggest something to make it easier?


I ran into the same issue, and I came up with a very simple solution:  
don't use Yojimbo to store PDFs that you want edit or annotate. That's  
not what Yojimbo was designed for.


I've been using Leap

http://www.ironicsoftware.com/leap/index.html

for storing PDFs I want to edit and have been very happy with it. As a  
bonus, Leap also acts like Yojimbo for all my files that won't or  
shouldn't go into Yojimbo.


Leap is expensive ($59) but worth it in my book. If you don't want to  
spend that much money, look at Yep ($39):


http://www.ironicsoftware.com/yep/index.html

It just works with PDFs.

Hope that helps.

Yes, in the sense that there's an Applescript that will allow you to  
open a PDF from Yojimbo in Skim. Like the View with Preview command  
in Yojimbo, it creates a temporary copy of the file, so any changes  
you make will not be saved in Yojimbo.

Re: restoring the drop tab

There is no Drop tab, and there is no function key functionality.  
The drop tab pane accepts the clicks and all the buttons are there,

Does quitting Yojimbo and opening it again fix the problem?

I ask because I ran into a similar problem: Yojimbo came up with no  
drop dock and the hotkey prefs were empty. In my case it was because I  
had Yojimbo set up as a login item, along with a large number of other  
items. Apparently there was some contention for resources, and Yojimbo  
was not able to complete its startup process, which includes launching  
the drop dock and setting the hotkeys. Quitting Yojimbo and restarting  
it fixed the problem for me.


BTW, the developers know about this issue. In my case it was caused by  
Yojimbo not being able to check in with sync services at startup  
(likely because of all the other applications I was trying to open  
simultaneously).

Re: Getting printer-friendly version of web page for archive

Aren't webarchives more flexible/editable than PDF files?


Not in any way that I'm aware. :-)


One big difference is that web archives preserve links, while printing  
to PDF doesn't.


Also, depending on your web browser, printing to PDF can really bork  
the page layout. Firefox seems to be a little better than Safari on  
getting the layout right.


Web archives are also more flexible in the sense that if you have a  
web archive, you can create a pdf or text representation of the page.  
You can't go from a PDF or text to a web archive though.


Just my $0.02.

The new Macworld.com design (which I loathe) took away the easy

get a so-called printer-friendly version, but how I like the store web
pages is to make a web archive of them instead.


The solution I settled on is to use the Scrapbook extension in Firefox  
to caputure the parts of the page I want to save. I then save the page  
I captured in scrapbook to Yojimbo.


It's an extra step, but you can automate it using a macro utility  
(e.g. Quickeys or iKey). I posted instructions on how to do that to  
the list a couple of weeks ago.

This may not be universal, but I have a number of PDFs printed from

this is a feature of the 3.0 WebKit that is in 10.4.11 and later.

Save Ad Free Web Pages to Yojimbo Highlight and Markup Pages to Save to Yojimbo

2007-12-21 Thread Kenneth Kirksey

-
WHAT'S THIS ALL ABOUT?
-

A little Christmas present for the Yojimbo community. Read on if you  
want to learn how to:


1) Save ad free web pages to a Yojimbo web archive

2) Be able to mark up (highlight, notes, etc.) web pages before you  
save them to Yojimbo.


3) Be able to save a selected part of a web page to a Yojimbo web  
archive.


4) Save static web pages to Yojimbo, web archives that don't try to  
connect to the Internet to load ads, images, or other content.


-
WHY GO TO ALL THIS TROUBLE?
-

1) I want Ad Free Web Pages! I've used Adblock on Firefox for years,  
so I'm used to seeing web pages without ads. I want the web pages I  
save in Yojimbo to be ad free as well.


2) I want to be able to mark up web pages. I like highlighting and  
making notes on many of the articles I read on the web. This method  
allows me to mark up the web page using Scrapbook on Firefox, then  
save the marked up page to Yojimbo.


3) I want to be able to save just a part of a web page. Using the  
Firefox Scrapbook extension's capture selection feature, I can save  
just the part of the page I want to save to Yojimbo.


4) I want to be able to save static web pages to Yojimbo. Yojimbo uses  
OS X's Web Archive format. While Web Archive has its advantages, it  
has some downsides as well, the major one for me being that it doesn't  
save a completely static page. Web Archive files save dynamic  
elements, most often ads. When you open a web archive file, it's not  
just pulling data off your computer; it often has to connect to the  
net to fetch images or ads. This slows down the loading of web archive  
files. In some cases the slowdown is dramatic, e.g. when you're  
connected to a wireless network but not the Internet. Any application  
opening a web archive will waste a lot of time trying to make an  
Internet connection that doesn't exist.


-
WHAT DO I NEED TO MAKE ALL THIS WORK?
-

Yojimbo

Firefox
http://www.getfirefox.com

Firefox Scrapbook Plugin
https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/427

Firefox AdblockPlus Extension
http://adblockplus.org/en/installation
(I recommend subscribing to Rick's EasyList and Rick's EasyElement
lists for optimal ad blockage. http://easylist.adblockplus.org/)

QuicKeys or iKey
http://www.cesoft.com/products/quickeys.html
http://www.scriptsoftware.com/ikey/

-
SO HOW DOES THIS WORK?
-

Here's the Reader's Digest condensed version. I use the macro utility  
(QuicKeys in my case) to automate the following procedure:


  1) Save a web page (or selection from a web page) using the Firefox
 Scrapbook extension. This saves a complete copy of the page to
 the hard drive.

  2) Open the Scrapbook sidebar and choose the page I just saved.

  3) Copy the file URL of the saved page to the clipboard.

  4) Invoke the Yojimbo quick entry panel with the file url of the
 saved web page.

  5) Delete the saved web page from the Firefox Scrapbook.

  6) Tell Firefox to go back to the original web page.

  7) Copy the URL of the original web page to the clipboard.

  8) Save the URL of the original web page to the comments of the
 most recently created Yojimbo item.

-
SO HOW DO I SET ALL OF THIS UP?
-

1) Install Yojimbo

2) Make sure Yojimbo's Recent Items smart collection is visible.

3) In the Yojimbo Hot Keys preferences, make sure that Show Quick
   Input panel is set to F8. That's what I've coded into the QuicKeys
   Macro. If you want to change the Hotkey, just make sure you change
   it in Yojimbo and QuicKeys (or iKey).

4) Install Firefox.

5) Install the Firefox Scrapbook extension.

6) Install the Firefox AdblockPlus extension.

7) Subscribe to Rick's EasyList and Rick's EasyElement in
   AdblockPlus. http://easylist.adblockplus.org/

8) Install either iKey or QuicKeys. I use QuicKeys, and the macros
   I'm providing are QuicKeys macros. I have not tried doing this
   with iKey, but I have been assured by experienced iKey users that
   iKey can do the same thing.

9) Download the Firefox to Yojimbo folder from my ftp site.

http://webpages.charter.net/kkirksey/Firefox_to_Yojimbo_Stuff.zip

This folder contains:

- My QuicKeys macros for you to import into your QuicKeys.

Re: Save PDF to Yojimbo and file

I was wondering if it would be possible to tweak the script so that  
if the Name field was left blank it would use the Yojimbo default

Might need some help with this one. The name of theFile sent to the  
script is Print Job, not the name of the document being printed. I  
don't know where to grab the actual name of the document being  
printed. Anyone else know?

I read academic articles in Acrobat (and mark them up with

Have you looked at Skim?

http://skim-app.sourceforge.net/

I used to use Acrobat for annotations, but I've found Skim to be  
better. It's a much leaner application, more responsive, uses less  
memory, and to me is easier to use for annotating PDFs than Acrobat.  
In fact, that's exactly what it was designed for. I've switched from  
Preview to Skim for my default PDF viewer, and I've got a script in  
Yojimbo to open PDFs from Yojimbo in Skim.

Re: Folders/Tag-collections

2007-05-25 Thread Kenneth Kirksey

Some of the comments in this thread have been along the lines of
Well I can find what I'm looking for amongst my 200 Bajillion items
in moments - and, look Ma, no collections, ain't I grand. Well,
great for you, but there are other ways of reviewing data than
knowing what you want and extracting it with aplomb from a big messy
pile. There is a very good reason why this is useful and why
organising these collections better would be even more useful´┐Ż  
Browsing.




The scene: A man storms angrily into a hardware store, carrying a  
hammer in one hand an a screw in the other. He stomps up to the  
customer service desk and proceeds to give the clerk a good tongue  
lashing.


Man: This hammer you sold me isn't fully featured! It doesn't do what  
I want a hammer to do!


Clerk: (looking perplexed) What doesn't it do?

Man: It won't drive this (holds up philips head screw) into wood!  
Where do you get off selling me a hammer that doesn't do everything I  
want it to do!


Clerk: (looking even more perplexed). Sir, hammers are for driving  
nails, not screws. We've got nails if you'd like to use your hammer,  
or we can sell you a screwdriver to use with your screws. There are  
plenty of options, but you can't drive a screw with a hammer.


Man: Dammit, I don't want nails or a screwdriver! I want to drive  
these screws with this hammer! What's wrong with you people! How do  
you even keep customers? If a customer wants a hammer that will drive  
screws, then dammit, you give them a hammer that will drive screws! I  
don't care what the hammer was designed to do, I want it to do what I  
WANT IT TO DO!


Clerk: (now afraid that he's talking to a bat-s**t crazy lunatic)  
Sir, the manager's office is right over that way...


:)

Is there a way to show Yojimbo items as a separate group in Spotlight?

I.e. Spotlight separates PDFs, images, e-mails, etc. Can Yojimbo  
items be

broken out into their own list?


Not that I'm aware of, but you can limit your spotlight searches to  
Yojimbo items only by appending kind:yojimbo item to your search  
terms.

Re: Yojimbo workflow for access password protected websites.

Here the workflow I'd prefer to have:

1. command-space to invoke quicksilver
2. Type PayPal (it would soon learn I'm looking for my Yojimbo  
record), and hit return.

3. Type in my application password
4. I then find myself in safari at the paypal website with my  
password on the clipboard.


Anyone know how this could be setup? (or whether it's even  
possible?) Thanks!


Don't know about Quicksilver, as I'm a LaunchBar user myself, but  
I've automated the process of getting passwords from Yojimbo to a web  
page using QuicKeys. You could probably do it with another macro  
utility like iKey as well.

Well that's a lot better than my QuicKeys solution. Thanks!

If you have the unsorted items and untagged items smart collections  
active, you might try turning those off. They use pretty expensive  
queries.

Re: Alternatives for massive PDF collection

My question is, what sizes are we talking about, that you consider  
a pdf collection as massive ???


My databse is just 55 MBs.


To be honest, I'm not sure what the fuss over PDFs is all about. My  
Yojimbo library contains over 2000 PDFs, with sizes ranging from a  
few K to 25+ MB, and I don't have any problems. My whole Yojimbo  
library is 9063 items and right at 4 GB in size.
