DataOrganizer 1.0 Beta 14 Now Available

The 14th beta of DataOrganizer is now available. You can download the beta here.

Release notes:

Some non-coding changes were made to better conform to App Store guidelines. These changes were minor and should not be noticeable.

Fixed an issue where changes made in a comment field would not be preserved if the field was still editing (think blinking cursor) while the app was in the process of quitting.

Fixed three issues regarding CSV export:

  • The CSV exporter was not properly handling text stored in the comment fields if the text in these fields contained a return.
  • The exporter was not preserving spaces that occurred at the beginning or at the end of text.
  • If a field is editing (think blinking cursor) while File > Export… is chosen, the updated text (the text in the field) is now exported instead of the prior text.

DataOrganizer 1.0 Beta 13 Now Available

The 13th beta of DataOrganizer is now available. You can download the beta here.

Release notes:

Beta 13 exclusively focuses on the “list fields”.

Fixed an issue with the contacts, calendar events, files, and messages list fields where a new item would not be added if the item was already added in the past but since deleted.

In prior versions, the contacts and calendar list fields would display an “is no longer available” message in place of a contact or event if the contact or event was deleted from Contacts or Calendar. Starting with beta 13, the list fields will now display as much information as they can regarding a missing contact or event based on cached information from the DataOrganizer database that is normally used for search and retrieval.

In prior versions, selecting “Show Mail App” from a messages list field would cause Mail to show an error if Mail was already open. This has been fixed in beta 13.

In further regard to messages list fields, some messages were not displayed in Mail when clicking on the arrow next to the message subject (or double clicking on the subject). Instead, Mail would display an error message (“The operation couldn’t be completed. (MCMailErrorDomain error 1030.): Mail was unable to open the URL “message:…”). This has (hopefully) been fixed in beta 13.

DataOrganizer 1.0 Beta 12 Now Available

The 12th beta of DataOrganizer is now available. You can download the latest beta here.

Release notes:

While I continue to work on some App Store-related things that need to be finished before the final release, I uploaded a small update. Beta 12 merely has a new expiration date (March 1) and fixes an issue where the fields in a card may not be editable even though editing should be allowed.

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.
