Hi

I'm using Tembo 1.7.5 (4511) and Mac 10.8.2

When I double click on a search result sometimes it takes me to the application but doesn't open the file. The command O does the same.

Open with command seems to work

On other occasions I've seen things work as expected.

Thanks

Bob

Hi!

I have seen this problem occur with sandboxed applications like Preview and TextEdit.

Looking at the messages in /Applications/Utilities/Console.app shows that sandboxd has denied these applications access to the documents they are supposed to open.

I have reported the problem to Apple but so far have not heard back.

I am not sure what trips sandboxd up or how the Finder seems to be able to avoid the problem.
Rebooting however seems to reset sandboxd and again allow sandboxed applications access to documents.

Best,
Pierre Bernard

Hi!

I have a beta version of Tembo you may want to try: Tembo 1.7.6b1.

This version uses a different API to open files.
While this should make no difference, I have yet to see this version fail to open files in Preview or TextEdit.

With a little luck this new API is better at navigating the security restriction set in place by the sandbox.

Best,
Pierre Bernard
