After beating myself over the head wondering why the hell nothing was happening when I invoked WriteRoom via QuickCursor, it dawned on me that the descriptor for WriteRoom may have changed since this was the first time it was available via the Mac App Store, and that maybe this was causing the disconnect between the apps.
Sure enough, the
CFBundleIdentifier value in WriteRoom’s
Info.plist file was
com.hogbaysoftware.WriteRoom.mac, and QuickCursor (which was last updated before this latest version of WriteRoom) was identifying WriteRoom with
com.hogbaysoftware.WriteRoom, which is why QuickCursor was doing nothing when I told it to use WriteRoom—as far as it was concerned the editor no longer existed on my machine.
The fix is easy:
- Open the
Info.plistfile inside the
- Append .mac to the
- Restart QuickCursor.
Update: Oops! Looks like all of this was covered in the blog post discussing WriteRoom 2.5’s release. Ugh.
