Annoture Progress

In honor of Paperture, I’ve changed the name of the program to Annoture.

Earlier, I discovered Apple was handling exporting IPTC information in an old manner. This unfortunately took out a couple of hours to figure out, time which I could have spent working on other parts of the application. For a program that does something quite simple, there’s a lot to do! The great thing is that I don’t mind coding. It’s fun, and I’m making great progress. There’s nothing better than loving what you do!

Some accomplishments from today:

  • Aperture Project/Album/Folder picker. For version 1.0, the user can choose on which Aperture container to perform the annotation action.
  • Preferences window. When the preferences grew from 3 to 5, they had to go into a separate window.
  • Refactoring. I love to refactor, but it takes a long time to test the new sub-systems that I wrote to replace what wasn’t broken in the first place.

Some unresolved questions:

  • How do you dynamically add a menu item separator to a popup menu in AppleScript Studio? I’ve searched through the applescript-studio mailing list and couldn’t find the answer. No one through Google seems to know either. Anyone?

It’s 3:14 am right now. I’ve been working non-stop for the past several days. As I said earlier, I don’t see this as work. Sure it’s hard work, but it’s amazingly fun!
