MacJournal 6.1.7b1

Get it here.

6.1.7 is a small followup release to 6.1.6, which came out about a week ago. Some users were seeing issues where entries and journals would duplicate themselves while using MacJournal. This apparently was due to how MacJournal reacts to the system it is running on telling it that its data changed outside of MacJournal. This release tries to address this in a few different way. First, it improves the strategy used to merge the data from disk to eliminate cases where it might duplicate something. The second is to stop paying attention to these messages from the system in cases where it doesn't make much sense. If the document isn't on something like Dropbox, these notifications are likely spurious (and may be a bug in the operating system itself) and would just cause unnecessary work for MacJournal. This is now turned off for most cases and I will look into perhaps turning this general ability back on in the future after testing with future versions of the operating system.

Please let me know if you have any issues with this soon as I expect the final release to come out later this week,

MacJournal 6.1b4

Get it here.

This beta should be the last one and the final release shouldn't be too much different than this one, so please let me know of any issues that you run into. There are some syncing improvements here as well as improvements for copying encrypted journals. Please report any issues using the Report a Bug item in the Help menu.

MacJournal 6.1b3

Get it here.

This beta has some bug fixes and improvements in behavior. It also should improve behavior when facing conflicts with data on Dropbox since Dropbox has its own way of handling conflicts. Other than that, large images should look better in certain WordPress templates, the default auto-save time is now shorter, most of the items in the Text Cleanup menu will work in the Topic field, and double-clicking an entry with content that can't be edited in MacJournal directly will open the best application for that content directly.

Please let me know of any issues that you have via the Report a Bug item in the Help menu.

MacJournal 6.1b2

Get it here.

There are mostly bug fixes in this beta over the last one. For example, refreshed categories will now be saved correctly when you are posting an entry to a blog. When syncing a document with an iOS device for the first time, there will be an extra message saying so just in case that is unexpected.

One change that you might not see is to how MacJournal deals with changes from other device using the same data over Dropbox. While opening the same place on more than one machine was never recommended, it sometimes happens and this release should hopefully handle it better by merging in the changes from the updated file on disk instead of wholly replacing the opened document, which may have some unsaved changes.

Please give this a try and let me know of any issues via the Report item in the Help menu. Thanks for trying MacJournal!
