Prior to learning about Apple’s Catalina Notes bug and its effect on Tinderbox’s Watch Folder functionality, I attempted to set it up by selecting Watch—>Folder From Notes. When I found that I couldn’t select a specific Notes folder via the dialogue, I clicked OK. This created the root level container for which I then set the WatchFolder attribute to the name of the folder in Notes that I created for this functionality.
I learned immediately that it wasn’t working correctly after the container exhibited the “trouble fetching notes in NotesForTinderbox” message. I then went to the Forum where I learned of the issue with Notes under Catalina.
However, I’m now seeing the following strange behavior: I’ll occasionally find that a new note entitled “note from Notes” has been created somewhere in my hierarchy with the same “trouble fetching notes in NotesForTinderbox” as its text (see screenshot). Mostly it’s just an annoyance, but in several instances, it has “clobbered” an existing note, replacing my original text with the “trouble fetching notes in NotesForTinderbox” text.
Can anyone suggest a method to prevent this from happening?
