UPDATE We’ve put together a release candidate of the upcoming Evernote for Mac version 1.4.9, which should fix many of the Snow Leopard issues mentioned below. Please be aware that this is not the final release, so you may encounter bugs and other issues. We plan to release the final patch through our normal autoupdate system next week.
Release candidate installation
- Quit Evernote (if you have it running)
- Go to you Applications folder and drag Evernote into trash
- Download and install the release candidate
We’re really excited about Apple’s Snow Leopard release (OS 10.6). It’ll help make future versions of both Evernote for Mac and Evernote for iPhone much more powerful. The current version of Evernote for Mac runs well on Snow Leopard, though we (and you) have identified some issues. We’re working on an update that will be out soon. In the meantime, here are some workarounds.
Problem: Safari Clipper doesn’t clip when running Safari in “64-bit mode”
Workaround : Switch your Safari to 32-bit mode by locating Safari.app in your Applications folder, select it, then right-click and choose Get Info (or use Cmd+I) to open the Information panel. Click the “Open in 32-bit mode” checkbox as shown in the screenshot below.
Problem: iSight Note doesn’t save the picture
Workaround: Take the photo using Photobooth and drag it into Evernote
Problem: Quick look for file attachments doesn’t display a preview
Workaround: Double click the file to launch it.
Problem: If you have Evernote for Mac installed, the Firefox clipper sends clipped pages to the web first, instead of sending them to Evernote on your desktop.
Workaround: No workaround for this one. You are still clipping the page, it just goes to the web first. We’re working on a fix to bring back the old functionality.
We’re also investigating a few reports related to synchronization and Spotlight.
A fix will be available soon. In the interim, please use these workarounds.
