So any and all users who’ve upgraded to the High Sierra preview has had issues with the nvALT. I know this because of the number of emails and tweets and various other means of complaining that are absolutely not the GitHub Issues page I try so hard to point people to for such communication. Also, because I’m running High Sierra, too.

I had almost given up on a fix. Notational Velocity’s code uses low-level file APIs, and it looked like there was no way I was going to get them all updated and working with the APFS filesystem in High Sierra. Turned out it was just an incorrect volume capabilities check (credit to Jacob Bandes-Storch). A couple of other fixes (credit to Vivek Gani) and it’s running fine.

If you’re already on High Sierra, you’ll have to download directly (below), and for everyone else you should see the automatic update and I highly recommend using it.

Here’s to nvALT’s survival until BitWriter gets back on track!

P.S. I accidentally found this “positive” remix of the song referenced in the title. Funny.
