Is Skim 1.7 deep linking working with HookMark?

Recently updated to Skim 1.7 and noticed today that HookMark deep linking with Skim is broken on my system. Works fine within the app, but HookMark deep, page linking no longer works here. Brings up the pdf but not the page.

Humm…just downgraded to 1.6.15 and issue persists.

Is anyone else having this issue?

Sorry about this issue, @Tom .

What’s your Hookmark version and macOS version?

If you do copy link, can you get deep link?

Could you please try give Hookmark Full Disk Access and see if it solves the problem? Not all people need this. But for some reason, some macs need this for Hookmark to work.

Also, could you please make sure the script has not been changed? If the “Reset to default” button is enabled, that means the script has been changed.

Thank you

No worries, this is a great community and HookMark is great. I am not sure if anyone else is having this issue?

My HookMark version is: 6.01 (5788)
I am using Sonoma 14.2.1
Skim version: 1.7 (152)

Skim script in Hookmark is default.
HookMark has full disk access is verified.
Skim is the default pdf app

Here is a sample link I get back from Hookmark

Link opens to the front page of pdf.
Skim links from the app itself work perfect.

Hope that helps and thanks for the help.


ps… Here are Skim’s 1.7 release notes

The link is not a deep link. Have you selected some text before doing “Copy Link”?

Thank you

Newbie mistake, I selected the highlight but did not select the text. Problem solved. Deep linking returns!

Thanks @bchend
