Yojimbo 3.0 Release Notes

This page documents all feature additions and modifications included in the Yojimbo 3.0 release.

For information on changes made in previous versions of Yojimbo, please see the release notes archive.

You can access Yojimbo's online help by choosing "Yojimbo Help" from the Help menu.


  • The New Image sheet includes a new button: "Scan". If a TWAIN compatible scanner is attached to your Mac via USB (and powered up), you can use it to add images to Yojimbo.

    Note: There are no plans for advanced scanner controls. If you require the ability to set DPI, color match, etc., you'll be much happier with dedicated scanning software (or Preview, for that matter).

  • There is a new preference pane: iPad.

    This pane allows you to pair your desktop installation with one iPad running Yojimbo for iPad (priced and sold separately).

    Syncing happens over WiFi, so your iPad and Mac need to be on the same network. Yojimbo must be running and active on the iPad before syncing can occur.

Changes and Fixes

  • Updated artwork for item type icons, consistent with the new art for the iPad.

  • Changing your Yojimbo password does additional work now:

    • All keys in the database get the new password, not just the newest/default one.

    • If you have multiple passwords (caused by using a different password on each machine, then letting MobileMe sync them together), Yojimbo will prompt you for the additional passwords, and make them all match.

  • Corrected some typos in the SDEF.

  • Worked around a crash resolving a Sidekick destination folder if the folder was on a server volume and that volume was unreachable.

  • If Yojimbo has an encryption key, but nothing uses it (encrypted items or passwords), you can make it "forget" the existing key and create a new one by choosing "Change Password" in the Security preferences.
