Widescreen hack for Yojimbo 2

Yojimbo 2 with widescreen hack

Thanks to this tip on editing compiled .nib files, I’ve finally been able to re-instate the widescreen hack for Yojimbo 2. With the new Tag Explorer, this makes a total of 4 possible vertical panes, so it may not suit you as well as it did for version 1, but I still prefer it.

Yojimbo-Wide-2.zip

Installation

This hack is for Yojimbo v2 only. Please make sure you update before installing this hack.

Backup Yojimbo first. Nothing bad should happen, but belt-and-braces, you know? Also, if you get sick of this view and want the old one back, just replace it with the backup. Also, this hack will stop working at the next Yojimbo update.

To install, ctrl-click on Yojimbo.app in the Finder, choose ‘Show Package Contents’ from the context menu. Navigate to /Contents/Resources/English.lproj/ and replace the OGMainWindow.nib file with the one in the download.

Also, if you’re interested in a change of icon, I’ve been using the beautiful Edo icon set as replacements:

I’ve updated the Yojimbo widescreen hack for version 1.5 (which supports adding images and icons by the way!).

This hack is for Yojimbo v1.5, and has only been tested on Leopard. It should work on Tiger too, but I can’t guarantee it!

Yojimbo widescreen view hack

Having tried just about every notebook, organiser and outliner app over the last 3 years, I’ve become an eager convert to Yojimbo. Here’s a little hack that makes the main window use a 3 vertical pane view, like the letterbox plugin does for Apple Mail.

There is a wee bug to be aware of. when you resize it too small, the list pane jumps right and covers up the preview. Clicking the splitter bar (the bit inbetween the 2 panes with an indented dot) brings it back though.
