Thank you all for persisting. And I’m sorry it took so long for us @ CogSci Apps to get to what might be at the heart of this issue: Is your macOS display language not set to German? That would explain issues with nvALT, and other apps with which Hook communicates via UI scripting.
If your language setting is in face non-English, then a quick test would be to switch your macOS display language to English, and quitting and relaunching each app in question.
For a a fix: the short answer is you can make Hook work with nvALT by replacing “Copy URL” with “URL Kopieren” if German, or “Copier URL” (for French), in (in Hook > Preferences > Script Editor tab > nvALT (script bundle) > “Get Address” tab (script)). If it’s a different language, just use whatever display you see in the “Edit” menu.
If that does not solve the issue, please do let us know.
Background and plans
During beta and for the 1.0 Golden Master (GM), we have been focusing almost exclusively on supporting English. (We addressed non-English issues here and there as they arose.)
Our plan is to internationalize Hook soon after 1.0 Golden Master. That in itself is coming soon. Internationalizing Hook is special compared to other apps, because Hook integrates with many apps, some of which can (currently) only be controlled via UI scripting. UI elements on which Hook relies differ in non-English cases from what we’ve packaged so far in Hook. So we will need to “internationalize” each UI scripted app.
We’ve posted some new information about this:
As Hook becomes more popular, it is our hope that more and more third-party app vendors will see the value of providing the automation support required by Hook (and other apps for that matter). Compare: Contacting developers of other apps – Hook.
