Photo Mechanic: Version 5 Build 19252
« on: February 15, 2018, 04:48:38 PM »
Hello Everyone,

We have a new updated build that solves a few issues present in the 19094 build.  Please see below for release notes.



Version 5.0 Build 19252

• (macOS 10.13.x) When updating a RAW photo with new preferences or metadata, if PM needs to update the embedded metadata and the file is on an APFS filesystem, PM will use an alternate method that makes a copy of the file instead of modifying the file “in-place”. This is unfortunately very slow in comparison but it avoids a serious Apple macOS bug with APFS when any program calls the system-provided “truncate()” routine.
• The Preview window no longer crops the image display area when in split view and the Preview window is resized to a small window.
• The Disk Image that PM resides on prior to install on your macOS system is now code-signed.

• Entering floating point numbers for box size (inches or cms) now works properly with snapshots in the Save As dialog.
• Modification of RAW files is now disabled by default.
