Important Notices

  • Yojimbo 4.5.1 requires macOS 10.13.6 or later. It will not run on any older version of macOS.

  • Yojimbo 4.5 introduced significant changes to syncing. If you use syncing and are upgrading from an older version, please take the time to read the Yojimbo 4.5 change notes carefully, as many things have changed.


This update to Yojimbo consists exclusively of changes to address reported issues. Please see the Yojimbo 4.5 release notes for details on additions and changes in Yojimbo 4.5.

  • Fixed cases in which the application created a legacy Web Archive item when it should instead have created a PDF snapshot.

  • The "Downloads" window (and associated menu command) have been retired as surplus to requirements. (PDF archives from web pages are created immediately.)

  • Made changes to improve the reliability of PDF archives created from web pages when the page's content load depends on JavaScript running when the page is loaded.

  • Fixed a case in which the desktop application would crash during iPad sync when an item being synced had a pathologically long name (such as might happen when pasting the entire contents of a note into the Name field).

  • When generating the item name while creating a PDF from a web page, Yojimbo will now strip extraneous line breaks and spaces from the beginning and end of the page's title; and will convert any line breaks within the title to spaces.

  • Fixed bug in which user-supplied metadata from the Quick Input panel wasn't stored when creating a PDF from a web page.
