iScreensaver has been updated to version

iScreensaver version 6.8.3 fixes an issue that could cause screensaver installers to crash silently on macOS non-English language systems (such as Korean). It also has improved error reporting, and has been tested with the latest versions of Windows 11 and macOS 12.1 Monterey. Any authors distributing screensavers to non-English macOS users should update and rebuild as soon as possible, and other authors are encouraged to update and rebuild when convenient.

Release Notes
We are pleased to announce the release of iScreensaver version 6 which supports macOS 10.11 (El Capitan) through 11 (Big Sur) and Windows 7 through 10. Read about Version 6

Some metadata not displaying for some images

edited September 2021 in General Discussions

The metadata and variable list is showing in the project list but is not displayed.

In my attached example anything added to the default is not showing... the reason being that when I selected the image and reselected the Caption tab, the additions are gone, even though still showing in the list. Good ol' Monterey I suspect.

I reset my Caption tab for all images and Preview now shows my sample correctly.

In case it has a bearing... I use "SaveAs" a lot. Once I have a good build and install I SaveAs incrementing filename as well as build/installer name.

    Possibly a caching issue? I would do this:

    • in any project created in an older version, select all items, Right Click, and choose Item/ "Update Metadata"
    • save and close
    • From iScreen Designer / Preferneces / Cache, click Clean and do a Deep Cleaning
    • Quit Designer (important)
    • Re-open your project.
    • It's likely that as the information is regenerated, it will update properly

  • Thanks for the deep clean reminder. I used it before but this time memory blanked 😊

    All good for now. Thank you.
