For those interested, I just posted an article to my blog detailing how to use Espionage together with Dropbox. I know there's an article about this somewhere on the Tao Effect, but I wanted to go into more detail and present the process in the context of a use case that probably will appeal to a lot of people:

Espionage 3 / URGENT — Folder disappeared
« on: February 07, 2014, 01:01:28 PM »

I had a list of 9 folder, two of which included, "Banking" and "Investments".

This morning I unlocked my folder list in Espionage, searched for "Investment", did "Command-1" to open that folder, then searched for "Banking" and again did "Command-1" to open that folder.

Both folders were successfully opened.

When I cleared the search field, however, my "Investments" folder is completely gone!

I manually closed "Banking", and noticed that the "File -> Lock All Folders" menu items is gray, meaning Espionage believes that all folders are closed -- which means it has lost its understanding of the (still open!) Investments folder.

What do I do now? How do I recover? What will happen if I now log out of my account or close my computer?

Any advice or help would be really appreciated. Thanks in advance.

Espionage 3 / SOLVED — Lost access to preferences
« on: February 04, 2014, 06:36:35 PM »
UPDATE: Ok, there *is* an application menu; it's just not visible when the app first launches (at least in my case, as the app asks for a master password on launch.) If I switch away from the app, and then back, I _do_ finally get a set of application windows.

Hi all,

I switched Espionage 3 from "menubar item" to "window", from the Preference. (I did this, hoping to find a set of application windows that could be accessed by Keyboard Maestro.)

Restarting the app, I get a window — but it seems I've completely lost access to all application menus. I can't even access the preferences any longer to switch it back to a menubar item.

Can someone help? Thanks so much, in advance!

Espionage 3 / Growl 2 doesn't recognize Espionage
« on: February 04, 2014, 04:07:12 PM »

After installing Espionage on my iMac, and seeing a few growl messages, I realized that I still had Growl 1.x installed on the machine.

I downloaded an installed Growl 2, and opened it. I then realized that Growl 1 was still running, so I disabled it's System Preference, and then control-clicked to remove the Preference pane.

I then logged out of my account, and back in (just in case Growl 1 might still be running).

Growl 2 launched and Espionage launched. However, I'm no longer seeing notifications at all coming from Espionage, and Espionage is not listed in Growl 2's Application list.

On my MacBook Air, which was running Growl 2 when I installed Espionage, I do see Espionage in its Applications list.

Would anyone know how I can force Espionage to become registered with Growl 2 on the iMac?

Thanks so much in advance.

Espionage 3 / Password Prompt on Launch
« on: February 04, 2014, 03:59:09 PM »

I have installed Espionage on my MacBook Air and on my iMac.

On my MBA, when I launch Espionage, I'm asked for a master password, even though I have no folders set for auto-unlock:

On my iMac, however, I am NOT prompted for a master password when I launch the app.

My preference is the iMac's behavior, where I only enter a password when I need to unlock a list. But I can't find any preference or setting in Espionage on the MBA which would seem to control that behavior.

Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance.
