Well native app for lin/win/mac has arrived. Win version works just fine, but macOS won't even start. Tried it on El Capitan and High Sierra. Anyone tried it? Working?

Just installed it on macOS Sierra (10.12.6) in a Late 2013 iMac. Working just fine. I hate the fact that it is trying to connect to Google for no reason though. Probably some statistics tracking going on here. Luckily I've got Little Snitch running to block this kind of sneaky behavior. App reports to be version 2.0.220. How did I miss any 1.x version of this???

Yep works for me as well. Didn't copy it to user application folder. That was the reason. Functions great.

This is kind of weird. Normally, programs are copied to the Applications folder that is in the root of the drive. Synology indeed created a shortcut to a user-specific Applications folder, which is pretty non-standard for Apple apps. I copied the file to the shortcut that was in the DMG file and then couldn't find it among my applications. So I copied it to the correct folder again (the Applications folder in the root) and it's working okay from there too. Don't know why Synology is trying to use a weird folder for this app.

Yes,it's strange... The client Chat installation in correct folder applications.

I'd like to see integration with Outlook where I could send a message to the Note Station. ...just like MS has done with OneNote.

I installed the Windows version on Win7-64 Ultimate, and it has some serious lags. When I've got a quick thought that I'm trying to jot down, it will occaisionally lag for up to 30 seconds or so before the cursor comes back. I reverted back to using the Chrome app version which has always worked fine.

Hi

doesn't work in Sierra 10.12.6. Neither in their designated directory, nor in my applications folder.

I think Notes has great potential. The feature I would like to see is revision control (ie you can restore previous revisions of notes).

Currently if someone needs a restoration of a note you have to restore the entire database.

Having revision control would mean people can call back previous versions of notes or restore deleted notes.

Came across one little annoyance; it is preventing my Mac from shutting down. At the first attempt of a shutdown, I get the notification that Note Station prevented the shutdown (macOS) and then I just click [Try Again] and it will just shut down. Not such a big deal, except for any scheduled shut downs where I'm not there to click the [Try Again]. The Mac will then just stay on, waiting for someone to click the retry option. :?

Synology Note Station.app 2.0.223 doesn't seem to work in OSX 10.10.5 (installed in root Applications folder). Nothing happens when double clicked.
Console clue: "28/10/2017 08:11:15.138 com.apple.xpc.launchd[1]: (synology.note.station.1971560[22711]) Service exited with abnormal code: 126"

Fix (c/o Rusty1281) = move app from Applications to ~/Applications

Copy it to users Application folder not the main Application one.

Bug Reports also go here?

1) If I edit a note in the iOS-App while I have the same Note open on the Desktop App. I click Sync first on the iOS-App, then on the Desktop App and expect the Note to be updated with the latest changes from the iOS-App also in the Desktop App. However: the Note remains unchanged. Only after closing and reopening that Note in the Desktop App, I can see the changes... All stuff is on most recent versions iOS 1.9.2 / Desktop 2.0.225 (on Mac 10.11.6) / Note Station 2.4.6-0827 (on DSM 6.1.4-15217 Update 1)

2) I've configured a certain VirtualHost DNS and port forwarding for Note Station, which works fine so far: I can access Note Station via the Web-UI under a nice and fancy URL without any ports and stuff (e.g. "https://notes.mydomain.com/"). However: when I try to share a note publicly, Note Station still generates an ugly only internally usable link to this note(e.g. "https://diskstation:5001/ns/sharing/Lm9r7" where I would expect something like "https://notes.mydomain.com/ns/sharing/Lm9r7" (side note: if I construct that URL by myself, it actually works when entered into the browser).
