Hook Version 3.9

Hook Version 3.9 (4960) is now available for download.

This update includes enhancements for Shortcuts, and some other improvements.

Shortcuts-related changes

  • NEW: Introduced a Shortcuts Action to Copy Link from Bookmark. This adds a fully formatted link to the clipboard, as if user had done Copy Link from within Hook. Formats include HTML, rich text, plain text, plaintext markdown.
  • NB: We have published two new Shortcuts for Finder that utilize the new action. One shortcut is to hook all the selected files together; the other shortcut hook the link(s) in the clipboard to the files you have selected in Finder.
  • IMPROVED: The bookmark object in Hook’s Shortcuts had two properties named “name”, courtesy of Apple itself using the “name” property. So we renamed Hook’s bookmarks “name” property to “title”.

Other changes.

  • IMPROVED: Optimized Hook’s storage.
  • FIXED: Added yet another fix to the perenial issue of Hook’s DMG automatically being mounted. To not risk encountering this issue again, launch Hook from a regular folder in Finder, not from the DMG (disk image). You’re better off discarding the disk image. Keep a compressed archive of it if you want.
  • FIXED: a couple of crashes.

New and improved software integrations

  • NEW: Support for Arc Browser.

If you use Hook’s software update, you will get these two further improvements:

  • support for OmniFocus 4 Beta
  • Support for Evernote in Korean
