I have upgraded to MacOS Sonora 13.6 today and since then Hookmark does not start anymore. It hangs displaying this dialog:
The progress bar does not move and I cannot even open Hookmark to edit preferences or anything else. The shortcut I used for Hookmark (^H) all the time does not work either anymore. If I click on the Hookmark icon in the menu bar ActivityMonitor displays: “HookMark (not responding)”.
I could try to re-install HookMark but am afraid to loose all my Hook-Links.
EDIT: After a long time (about 20 minutes) the “Updating info” dialog vanished and Hookmark worked as expected. But 20 minutes ???
Frequency: happens all the time
network drives: yes, several, I connect them from time to time, but no bookmarks pointing to them (I guess). But a lot of the bookmarks point to paths in my OneDrive folder. Maybe those are the reason for the slow response?
Now it takes hours: HookMark active in Acitivity monitor (memory for HookMark up to 160 MB after 6 hours) but I cannot open HookMark as it is still initializing. Even getting to the preference settings in HookMark is not possible as the application is still initializing. No network drives connected, 1772 items in the HookMark “aliases”-folder.
(1)Quit Hookmark in Activity Monitor.
(2)Open Finder, Click Menu Go → Go to Folder…, copy and paste the following text into the input box and hit enter:
(3)Rename the folder com.cogsciapps.hook to com.cogsciapps.hook.old
(5)Turn on sync in Hookmark preferences window
Let Hookmark runs for some time and see how it goes.
