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).

Report Kind -> Save Locally -> Where -> Other == Spinning Wheel / Not Responding

Whenever I choose Other from the drop-down list it goes into a permanent spinning wheel. Activity monitor show Simon as Not Responding. I have waited as long as 10 minutes and still no response. This is making it impossible for me to set up the reports in the location that I want them.

Ah, that is a bug. I've just fixed it for the next release.

Thanks for reporting this issue!

Re: Report Kind -> Save Locally -> Where -> Other == ...

Excellent, thank you. I will wait for the next update and then try again.

No need to wait; here's a pre-release build with the fix. It also includes some report tweaks to better support using Panic's Status Board (more on that later).

You're welcome to continue using this alpha build, or you can switch back to the general release after setting your report destination.
