ScreenFloat v1.5.16 on macOS 10.15 Catalina

ScreenFloat's Mac App Icon

Since I’m having trouble with the macOS Catalina-compatible ScreenFloat v1.5.17 update getting through review, I thought it’d be best to publish a quick note about how to make sure ScreenFloat works for you on macOS Catalina. Otherwise, you’ll probably end up with screenshots of your Desktop, instead of the actual windows you’re trying to take a screenshot of.

  1. Quit ScreenFloat if it’s running
  2. In Terminal.app (in /Applications/Utilities/), type the following, followed by enter/return:
    tccutil reset All at.EternalStorms.ScreenFloat-appstore

    This resets all of ScreenFloat’s permissions on your Mac (the only one it uses is the Screen Recording one). If you’re using the demo, replace ‘-appstore’ with ‘-demo’.
    At this point, a restart of your Mac might be necessary.

  3. Launch ScreenFloat and take a screenshot.
  4. If a dialog appears asking for screen recording permissions, click on Open System Preferences and select ScreenFloat in the list that appears
    If the dialog doesn’t appear, launch System Preferences, select Security & Privacy -> Privacy -> Screen Recording and select ScreenFloat there.
  5. Restart ScreenFloat

Now ScreenFloat will be able to create screenshots again.

My apologies for the inconvenience. I’m hoping to have the update for it out soon, but currently, I’m at the App Store App Review’s mercy.

Yoink v3.5 for Mac – Handoff and Clipboard History

Yoink for Mac App Icon

I’m very happy to announce the immediate availability of Yoink v3.5 for Mac. It’s a free upgrade for everyone who has already purchased the app and brings two great new features, as well as compatibility improvements and bug fixes.

Yoink Overview

What is Yoink?

Yoink offers a temporary place for file- and app-content drags to free your mouse so you can more easily and quickly navigate to the actual destination of your drag. This is especially helpful when it comes to moving and copying files between different windows, spaces or (fullscreen-) apps.

How does Yoink fit into my workflow?

Yoink stays in the background most of the time, waiting for you to drag someting. The app fades in at the edge of your screen when you start a drag, like a file in Finder, or app-content like an image from a website, or text from a document. Drag your files to Yoink, and your mouse is free for you to navigate more easily and comfortably. Yoink will hold on to the files you drag to it until you drag them out again.

The app can be customized in a number of ways. You can set up where it should appear (at either side of your screen, top, center or bottom; or at the mouse cursor), when it should appear (when a drag starts, or when a drag reaches the edge of your screen) and what apps it should (or should not) appear in. If a file drag contains multiple files, a Stack is created so you can drag them out together again easily. Stacks can also be split up if you’d like to drag out one specific file in that drag. QuickLook is available for all files you add to Yoink, as icon previews for quick identification and as full previews for a detailed look. A keyboard shortcut lets you hide Yoink if you currently don’t need it, and show it again when you do.

What’s New in Yoink v3.5?

Yoink Clipboard History Today Widget

Today Widget in macOS' Notification Center

Yoink offers you a history of your clipboard’s contents with a convenient, out-of-the-way Today Widget. With it, you can copy previous items back to your clipboard, or send them straight to Yoink.

Handoff

Yoink's Handoff on macOS

You can now transfer files between Macs, iPads and iPhones (separate Yoink for iOS app required, available on the App Store) using Handoff. Selected files are transferred right away, whereas if there’s no selection, you can pick specific items on the receiving device.

Compatibility Improvements

Aside from improvements regarding the compatibility with various apps, Yoink also now fully supports macOS Mojave 10.14, including its Dark and Light appearances.

This comes with an override where you can explicitly choose Yoink’s dark or light appearance, ignoring the setting in System Preferences.
