DataOrganizer 1.0 Beta 11 Now Available

The 11th beta of DataOrganizer is now available. You can download the beta here.

Release notes:

Some additional tweaks were made that should not be noticeable.

Remaining known issues that were not fixed in this beta:

For reasons that I have yet to figure out, a crash appears to occur in the sidebar/source list. (It is also possible that the crash is really occurring in a relationship field’s library/stack chooser, as it uses the same code as the source list.) DataOrganizer tries to insert a stack (into a library) below a stack that does not exist.

DataOrganizer may crash when attempting to drag a new field out of the field bar. This bug may be related to the source list bug mentioned above.

DataOrganizer 1.0 Beta 10 Now Available

The 10th beta of DataOrganizer is now available.

(If you would like to give it a try, please send me an email at beta at bayhoff.com.)

Release notes:

This release is much smaller than the other releases. Some minor internal changes were made that should not be noticeable.

Beta 9 of DataOrganizer 1.0 Now Available

The ninth beta of DataOrganizer is now available.

(If you would like to give it a try, please send me an email at beta at bayhoff.com.)

Release notes:

If you close the main DataOrganizer window, you can bring it back by choosing Window > DataOrganizer (Command-0). For apps that are not document based, you typically can also bring back the main window by clicking on the app’s icon in the Dock. This was not working in prior betas but has been added in beta 9.

Fixed an issue with the Contacts and Calendar Events pickers where pressing on a key would unexpectedly add a contact/event to a list.

When adding a number field or creating a new card, the number field would sometimes — but not always — start off with a value of 0 (zero). This was a bug, as number fields are not supposed to have a default value. This has been fixed in beta 9.

Although the position and size of the main window is preserved, the height of the window was decreasing after every launch. This has also been fixed in beta 9.

In regard to fields that contain a button (choice/pop up, check box), if you click on such a field to select it, you can now press the spacebar to make changes so as long as you have “All controls” selected for Full Keyboard Access in System Preferences. (System Preferences > Keyboard > Shortcuts)

Fixed an issue were pressing an arrow key would not change the selected field.

When using the arrow keys to change the selected field, the form will now scroll to display the entire field if possible.

Beta 8 of DataOrganizer 1.0 Now Available

The eighth beta of DataOrganizer is now available.

(If you would like to give it a try, please send me an email at beta at bayhoff.com.)

Release notes:

DataOrganizer will now remember which cards are selected for libraries, stacks, and smart stacks. Upon selecting a library, stack, or smart stack, DataOrganizer will automatically show you the card that was last selected. The selections are preserved between launches.

In addition, the selection in the source list is now preserved between launches.

As of Beta 7, DataOrganizer preserves not only the size and position of the window, but the positions of the two vertical dividers. Sadly, the second divider was usually placed in the wrong spot upon relaunch, making the middle pane (the list of cards) too narrow. This has (hopefully) been fixed in beta 8.

Window > DataOrganizer (previously Window > Data) now correctly opens the DataOrganizer window if it was previously closed.

The app icon now appears in the welcome screen and the about box on Macs with retina screens.

Beta 7 of DataOrganizer 1.0 Now Available

The seventh beta of DataOrganizer is now available.

(If you would like to give it a try, please send me an email at beta at bayhoff.com.)

Release notes:

Upon relaunch, DataOrganizer now remembers the size and position of the window. It also remembers the positions of the dividers.

Some of the proxy images in the field bar have been replaced by images that better portray the behavior of the fields that they represent.

The appearance of the template sheet has also been altered. Not only has the background color changed, but the generated template images have also been tweaked to better match the the updated proxy images in the field bar.

DataOrganizer is now compiled using Swift 4.2.

DataOrganizer 1.0 Beta 6 Now Available: It’s a Dark Mode World

The sixth beta of DataOrganizer is now available.

(If you would like to give it a try, please send me an email at beta at bayhoff.com.)

Release notes:

DataOrganizer now fully supports Mojave’s Dark Mode.

The permissions problem affecting the contacts and events fields has been resolved. (In prior versions, this bug only occurred when run on Mojave.)

The appearance of the choice field has changed. Choice fields now display themselves as a standard pop up button. As such, the behavior of the choice field is more clear. (It also looks better in dark mode.)

DataOrganizer 1.0 Beta 5 Now Available

The fifth beta of DataOrganizer is now available.

(If you would like to give it a try, please send me an email at beta at bayhoff.com.)

Release notes:

The number of permitted fields for some field types has, once again, increased in this version.

The appearance of the rating field has changed slightly.

Help > DataOrganizer Help now opens the Getting Started Videos page in your chosen browser.

Remaining known issues that were not fixed in this beta:

Although DataOrganizer “supports” Mojave’s dark mode, it looks terrible at the moment.

There seems to be a “permission problem” with contacts and calendar events. Like iOS, macOS will ask you for permission before accessing your contacts and calendar information. This works fine on High Sierra. However, Mojave seemingly denies access without asking, rendering the contacts and events fields useless at the moment.
