Introducing Simon 5!

Simon version 5 is now available. It is a massive update, introducing a much-requested feature: syncing the Simon data between multiple Macs, plus a Simon Status service, a Link Checker filter, improved Find filter, iMessage and Speak Error notifiers, a new app icon, and much more.

Important: please note that Simon 5 requires a minimum of macOS 10.12 (Sierra), and is a paid upgrade from Simon 4. Purchasers since September 1, 2020 automatically get a version 5 license (that also works in previous versions).

Read the Simon What's New page for details.

Re: Version Tracker not reporting changes

The Start and End text probably don't encompass the relevant part of the page. Those words occur multiple times in the page, so might not be ending up with the block you expect. Try adding more text to refine it. Use the source view in the Preview window to figure out the appropriate text.

Your right

I have been experimenting with the text.
It all boils down to getting unique text.
