TruePreview 1.8a1 released

To at least give you all some relief from Lion's version of Mail, I have released an incomplete alpha version, TruePreview 1.8a1. This version includes preliminary support for OS X 10.7 and Mail 5.0. Due to changes in Apple's code, the reply, forward, and scroll/click options are unimplemented and disabled in this version. I will (hopefully) add them back when I figure out how to make them work. So, this version only contains the delay (immediate, never, X seconds) and "Viewing in a separate window" functionality. NOTE: This version is only for Lion and Mail 5.0. If you have an older version, please continue to use version 1.7.

I very much appreciate all of you who have contacted me with words of support and encouragement. I am also extremely thankful for all of you who have made a donation to support the development of TruePreview! It has spurred my on through my frustration of trying to get this working!

Ahhhhh, thank you!

My installation of your alpha release 1.8a1 on my new Macbook Air

Mac OS Version 10.7.1

Mail: Version 5.0 (1244.2/1244.3)

 with no previous installations of TruePreview went flawlessly.  No issues whatsoever and it worked fine from the very first usage.  THANK YOU.  I had no hesitations in donating to you for a untility that is very much needed.  Looking forward to the actual releases.

Its still not working

Even when I deleted truepreview 1.7 I am unable to install the 1.8 successfully.

Download is working, but the installation not.

 

What I am doing wrong?

Best

Marco

Thanks, but...

Thanks a lot for the Lion update!  However, I'm experiencing some bugs... first when I really did open an email, it wouldn't mark it as Read.  Then while in the middle of composing an email I went back to my Inbox to find ALL of my emails marked as Read.  Anyone else experience this?  Am I doing something wrong?

Very strange - my unread

Very strange - my unread emails are back to showing as unread which is great.  But a message still isn't getting marked as Read after I open it.

reply, forward

Hi Jim

Thanks for this TREMENDOUS development. You've done a great job and made, I'm sure tousand of people happy today!

One quick question though: you wrote reply, forward options are "not implemented" but I see they are "checked" (and this can't be changed) in the preference window (as opposed to the Scroll option, which is unchecked but can't be changed either). Is it supposed to mark the message as read when replied, and this feature will be optional in the near future, or is it  the other way round? If it is first scenario, I'm sorry to report that it does not work with my installation (which I'm happy to gove you details about if it helps).

Thanks again and good luck for the coming developments.

 

You need to uninstall 1.7 for 1.8 to work

If you want it to work on Lion you need to uninstall 1.7 first otherwise you get an error. here's how:

For those of you receiving installation errors, are you running 10.7.1? Can you please send the log from Installer (cmd-L then set the Detail Level to Show All Logs)?
