    I’ve just downloaded NB1.2 for Mac OS10.6.8, replacing my previous version, and now find I cannot open it, getting a “…cannot be opened because of a problem” notice. Please help!

    It’s great to see the desktop app is still getting attention!

    Mac OS X 10.7-10.10 use is in the contents of Notebooks 1.2.1 (Mac OS X 10.6.8).

    Hi Alfons,

    since I updated Notebooks to version 1.2.1 on Mac I can no longer sync Mac and iPad.

    Usually, it all works fine. I …
    – create a WiFi Network on my Mac
    – start “Notebooks server” on my Mac
    – fill in the Notebooks server credentials into the WebDAV-Settings for Notebooks on my iPad
    – start the sync process on the iPad

    But with Notebook 1.2.1 on my Mac, after starting “Notebook server” Username and Password just won’t appear anymore.
    So there is nothing to enter in Notebooks’ settings on the iPad.
    Naturally, Notebooks on my iPad says “Synchronization failed. Anmeldung nicht erfolgreich. Bitte überprüfen Sie Serveradresse und Anmeldedaten.”

    Do you have any idea how to solve this puzzle?

      Hi Carsten,

      sorry to hear you are having problems with the update. There is no obvious reason why Notebooks would not show the server details, and Notebooks 1.2.1 contains no changes regarding the server specifically.

      Have you tried to restart Notebooks, or even your Mac? Did that improve anything?
      When you start the server, what does Notebooks display in that window? Does it display anything at all? Would you mind sending a screenshot to info(at)notebooksapp.com ?

      Did Notebooks 1.2 work fine for you? If so, the quickest solution would be to revert to 1.2 (in fact, you could run Notebooks 1.2 and 1.2.1 side by side). In case you don’t have that version anymore, you can still get it from

      I hope we find a way to solve that.

        Hi Alfons,

        thanks for your quick reply.
        I just sent you an email with the subject ‘Notebooks 1.2.1 not showing user name and password’ and three screenshots.
        Think, I found the cause.
        Feel free to publish the contents of my mail here if you want to (but please withoud my email address!)

          Hi Carsten,

          thank you for the details about this issue. We will fix it for the next release.

          In case anyone else encounters the situation that Notebooks for Mac does not display username and password (although the server is running), the workaround is to stop all virtual machines running on the same computer. As said, this will be solved with the next update.
