Curio 8.6.3 Release Notes

Release Date

October 21, 2013


Curio 8 runs on macOS Lion (10.7), Mountain Lion (10.8), or Mavericks (10.9).

OS X Mavericks (10.9) Tweaks and Notes

  • Fixed a Mavericks-only problem where Evernote OAuth authentication was not working correctly so you couldn't login to your account via the Curio Evernote shelf.
  • You may want to read over the Mavericks-related changes made in Curio 8.6.2, including those that impact PDFViews in zoomed idea spaces.

Evernote 3rd Party App Rate Limits

Evernote has announced that they're imposing rate limits on all 3rd party apps starting November 1st. These new restrictions will limit the number of calls a 3rd party app can make to the Evernote cloud within a 1-hour period. Therefore several changes were made to Curio's Evernote shelf so we greatly reduce the number of calls made to the Evernote cloud.

  1. Curio will no longer automatically download all notes in the selected notebook to the local cache.
  2. Instead we will only auto-download the first 5 notes in the result list. This number can be modified using Terminal, although don't make it too high or you could hit the rate limit: defaults write com.zengobi.curio "Evernote Auto Download Limit" -int 5
  3. When you select any note in the result list, if it isn't already local, Curio will then immediately download it from the cloud.
  4. A note will now clearly indicate if it is on the Evernote cloud, is being downloaded, or is in the local cache, as shown below.

  5. Instead of downloading the note's resources and recognition data as separate calls to the cloud the entire note is grabbed with a single call which is much more efficient.
  6. Once a note is local you can hit spacebar to preview it, double-click to open it, or drag it to an idea space to embed a copy of the note in your project.

Other Fixes

  • Converting a scribble region to or from an image figure is now working correctly on Retina Macs, even with a mix of connected Retina and non-Retina displays.
  • Fixed an issue where image figures located near a page break boundary printed or exported to PDF would sometimes appear on both sides of the page break.
