  1. Tags (?labels?) do not appear to work. When I add a colored tag via right-click, it does not complain; however, nothing appears in the tags column. If I try adding a tag with the dialog and adding some text, it also disappears. No error message appears either.

  2. Dropbox integration is broken in this version! I cannot copy Dropbox links from Forklift anymore. I have to find the folder/file in the Finder and copy the link from there. Why am I even using Forklift at this point? It’s been months and no fix.

    1. The Copy Dropbox Link feature isn’t broken.

      Please open ​this link and sign in to your account if you aren’t already:

      Under the connected apps you should see one or two ForkLift instances. ForkLift(Sharing) allows you to share for example the Dropbox links. Click on the arrow next to ForkLift(Sharing) and click on Disconnect to disconnect Dropbox(Sharing) from ForkLift.

      Go back to ForkLift and try to copy the Dropbox link of an item in your Dropbox folder. In a browser window, ForkLift should ask for permission to access your Dropbox. Allow access.

      ​Check if the link was copied. If it wasn’t, then try to copy a Dropbox link again, if ForkLift asks for permission again, then open the Keychain Access app (Applications > Utilities) and search for the term Dropbox and delete all com.binarynights.ForkLift-3.dropbox.authv2 entries. Try to copy the link in ForkLift again.

      If ForkLift copies the link, then restart ForkLift and try to copy a link again. It is possible that ForkLift will ask for the access again, allow access. Check if copying works as expected. If it does, restart ForkLift and try to copy a link again, ForkLift shouldn’t ask for permission again and copying Dropbox links should work.

      If copying doesn’t work after you deleted the entries from the Keychain, then try to restart ForkLift and try to copy a link again. Allow access again. You can a little bit play around with disconnecting ForkLift from Dropbox and deleting the entries from the Keychain.
