I ask because the Park Link functionality no longer seems to be working properly. I sent a message to support describing my experiences. In general, all of the parked links contained within a note disappear after clicking on any one of them.
Is Tinderbox 8.06 compatible with the Apple 10.15 release?<strike> [yes, to best of our knowledge]</strike>
We’ve not been able to reproduce the issue yet (see your email) but it may be that we’re talking about different things. (A parking space can only contain one link…)
I am experiencing the exact same issue.
I get this error every time I click on any link: App could not be opened.
Then the link disappears. Also, all the links in the rest of the file are quickly disappearing as well. As you can imagine, this is a rather destructive problem.
I imagine it must have something to do with the relocation of apps to the System folder.
Please send a sample document to tech support: firstname.lastname@example.org
Done. The file has just 2 notes. I tried to link one to the other. The problem happens on every document (old or new) even after a fresh install (delete everything related to tinderbox I could find in the Library folder).
We’re on the case. Thanks for the heads-up.
A last-minute change in Catalina fouls up text links in Tinderbox 8.0.6 . We expect to have an update shortly.
We’ve got a fix for this en route to backstage
Excuse my ignorance, but what does this mean? Is this a sort of silent update?
Or does it simply means that there is work being done on the matter?
We have a Backstage Program for people who want access to the very latest experimental builds, and who want to discuss experimental features. https://www.eastgate.com/Tinderbox/Backstage.html
If all goes well, the re-engineering text links will be available tonight (Eastern Standard Time) backstage. It’s likely to take a few more days for full release, though we’ll do that as soon as we possibly can.
Aha! Thanks for the clarification. I thought I was facing some sort of previously unknown technical or idiomatic expression.
I’m afraid I’ll have to live with the bug a few more days.
Mark, you mentioned in today’s Tinderbox 8.1.0 announcement email, “Tinderbox 8.1 is required for macOS Catalina and it’s recommended for everyone.” I saved a simple file in 8.0.0 today, and reopened it minutes ago, seemingly successfully, all whilst running 10.15 Catalina.
So this came as a surprise, but I don’t see any elaboration here, nor there, on what makes it required for use with 10.15 – please link if that info is available already! Appreciatively,
Older versions of Tinderbox are not compatible with Catalina, which fails to recognize their text links.
Tinderbox 8.1 adopts a new approach to managing text links and is compatible with Catalina.
