TotalFinder status under macOS 10.13 (High Sierra)


#1

High Sierra didn’t bring any dramatic changes to Finder.app.

Latest TotalFinder version compatible with High Sierra is v1.10.2:

Thanks for testing.


Why is visor not working?

Darwin
Any news on an update to fix the High Sierra problem?
Just out of interest I looked at all of the other Finder replacements available and not one of them comes close to providing the functionality I love from Total Finder. Currently using two Finder windows but it just is not the same!!

Thanks

Hi Jeff,

I didn’t have that much time to investigate all issues, but latest TotalFinder more or less runs under High Sierra. Only Coloured Labels feature crashes AFAIK.

I’m pretty positive that I will have fixes for it sometime next week.

So generally it is good news, the new Finder is very similar to Sierra version.

Darwin
When I try to launch Tf it crashes and I get the crash dialogue - latest crash report is here:

Thanks


#6

Yes, your crash is in Labels “plugin”.

defaults write com.binaryage.totalfinder TotalFinderLabelsDisabled -bool YES

This will disable Color Labels plugin and TotalFinder should run next time you launch it.

To re-enable it again:

defaults delete com.binaryage.totalfinder TotalFinderLabelsDisabled

Colored Labels Not Working
#7

Brilliant! That fixed it…
Thanks


#8

Although Visor no longer works???


#9

Visor initially worked for me. But after the first restart post 10.13 installation, it broke. Restarting Finder also appears to be broken with Visor enabled. Crash log: https://gist.github.com/anonymous/48a599dac8b05887d6f2df5b03261ded


#10

I have just released initial version compatible with High Sierra on beta channel:
https://totalfinder.binaryage.com/beta-changes#1.9.6

Please test it and report back.


#11

Seems to run OK EXCEPT Visor does not appear (shot cut or via menu…)
thanks


#12

Same goes in my testing. v. 1.9.6 seems to run well except for the Visor function. Thanks for churning out a version with High Sierra support so quickly! Let me know if I can test any builds with Visor capability. Happy to live dangerously for that feature. :slight_smile:


#13

Hmm. Will have to investigate that Visor problem. It worked for me. Do you see any errors in the Console.app (hint: filter all messages by “Finder” keyword).


#14

Yes, there are some entries in Console.app with TotalFinder in them. Which logs would you like specifically and from which folder?


#15

I just meant in general if you could spot some error message or something fishy there (when trying to enable and activate Visor feature in preferences)


#16

Restarted TF, set, unset, reset Visor - no entries in Console log and Visor still not working…
cheers


#17

Same for me. I uninstalled TF, installed 1.9.3 then upgraded to 1.9.6, issue persists. TF works, but Visor does not. Now there are no errors in Console when enabling or disabling Visor either.

@darwin What settings do you have enabled? Maybe if I copy your settings exactly, I can get Visor to work?


#18

I’m not sure if this should make a difference or not, but I was able to get Visor to work by changing the order in which I performed the actions:

  1. Uninstalling TF
  2. Reinstalling and updating TF
  3. Disabling SIP
  4. Enabling Visor
  5. Re-enabling SIP

The only difference for me was that in prior attempts I had enabled SIP and installed the helper, and then immediately rebooted and re-enabled SIP. This time I disabled SIP and then enabled Visor prior to rebooting to re-enable SIP.

This may have nothing to do with the fact that Visor is now working for me, but I thought I’d send it along just in case.


#19

I have just released a new version. It looks like the Visor issues were caused by my recent changes. I introduced undefined behaviour. I’m still not 100% sure because I was unable to reproduce it here.

Thanks for your feedback:

#20

Visor is currently working for me, but FYI - I cannot see any updates in TF. (including pre-release button is checked of course)
