Manila Envelope Part 7

I’ve been digging for a while on Manila Envelope, getting frustrated by a few things. Still impossible to work with secure text fields in AppleScript Studio. However, I now have the application working with a preferences file. This is pretty critical, as this was the last missing piece of functionality to make Manila Envelope do everything that my old scripts did.

My original goal was to make this release an “everything and the kitchen sink” one, and add in lots of stuff like style translation and so on. I think, though, that it’s time to avoid the Mozilla syndrome and fix on a reasonable set of requirements for 1.0. With this, I can hopefully release 1.0 in the next few days, before I go on my January road trip.
