the database is correct, and they cannot be seen by other
applications without a lot of trickery on their part.

To be specific, Yojimbo doesn't edit documents and as such,
doesn't have any sort of notion of an unsaved document.

AppleScript access to password items.
If you use Safari, make sure the location field of all your
records starts with http:// or https://. Camino allows slack urls.
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?
No, unfortunately the groups are defined by Apple, and not
accessible to us.
Good point, personally I never used .mac sync. This would
require me to 1) buy a .mac account and 2) buy another yojimbo license.
While the .Mac requirement is true, you don't need an additional
Yojimbo license. All flavors of Yojimbo license we sell allow
use on multiple machines.
I use the drop dock for a lot of my bookmark and web archive
creation. One obvious shortcoming is that I can't tag items
while creating them that way.
This morning, I whipped up this script:

set allTags to (name of every tag)

Before things get too far out of control, I want to clarify some
facts about how Time Machine and Yojimbo.
Yojimbo is built on CoreData, the same underlying technology as
Aperture, and several other products. Because of issues related
to how Time Machine and CoreData manage files on disk,
I would love it if the quick input dock also included tag
entry. It would save me an extra step on literally every piece
of textual information that I enter into Yojimbo. I
understand that with things like Web archives and pdf's I would
still have to do step two.

Password Retriever can export records as delimited data files,

Here's my question about Yojiimbo. If I'm understanding right,
there's essentially only one database for the Yojimbo
application. Even if I want to use Yojimbo to catalog stuff
for several very different things, they will all be together
when I open Yojimbo. However, I can tag them separately
However, I would still like it if you could have more than one YJ
library at a time (and sync them all over a single dotmac account) so
that my wife and I could have separate buckets. Given that individulal
dotmac accounts are probably very often used by families of users,
this seems a reasonable
Has anyone made an Applescript to open a Yojimbo note directly in BBEdit?
If not, would the proper procedure be to export the note to
disk, open it in BBEdit and then have the Finder delete it from disk?
Getting the contents of the note to BBEdit (minus all
formatting) is trivial, but any
When I typically bring up Yojimbo using QuickSilver. Once it's

a keyboard shortcut to search?
Command-Option-F in the application, or you can set your own

What I am trying to do is get the modified date of the item and be able to
rename the item by appending the modified date to the end of the filename

For some time I have been saving web pages, primarily receipts, to

does not yield a 'proper' pdf but rather the text only (and generally in
very small font size too). I can however 'Save as PDF' from the Print

I believe I have been unclear. I have seven items (both Serials
and Passwords) which show up in their respective default
collections for Serials and Passwords. These items also show up
in the Unsorted folder, but are clearly sorted into the default
collections for Serials and Passwords. All
I just wanted to fire up Yojimbo (have to retrieve a
registration code I have stored in it) and I get the message
that Yojimbo is already running. Only one copy can run at a
time. The dialog box for this message just has a quit button.
The problem is that Yojimbo is NOT running. Has anyone run
On the other hand, dragging the URL to Yojimbo automatically captures the title
of the page (which you may or may not want). If you use the quick input you'll
have to type it in yourself (or use a multi-clipboard program like Quicksilver
which makes this a matter of a few keystrokes).
Other than iterating through each database item using
AppleScript and searching manually through it's list of tags to
find abandoned tags, does anyone have any other AppleScript
suggestions for how to find unused tags? Or any ideas why his
Spotlight index wasn't up to date with Yojimbo's tags?

I agree completely with your mail. Sometimes I am afraid to
