Codebook for macOS 3.6.5 Released - Note Editing Bugfix

This morning we’re releasing Codebook for macOS version 3.6.5, which contains just a couple of changes. They’re not super important, but they’re important to us (and to those affected by a bug!) and we’ve been trying to sweat the details a little harder lately.

Changes in this version

  • Fixes jumping cursor bug caused by space bar on Note Entries in certain scenarios
  • Adds logo artwork to the somewhat spartan Getting Started view

There have been quite a lot of changes in Codebook 3.6 for macOS, including new features! In case you missed any:


  • Optimizes entry loading, speeding up login times
  • Optimizes generation of the options menu in the add new field button
  • Adds support for Select All on the entries list (keyboard shortcut command A when entries list is active responder)


  • Search Scope which allows you to filter which areas of your data you’re searching on (Entry names, Field values, Label names). See additional information on our blog
  • Export Selected Entries which allows you to select specific entries from the center pane and export them to CSV or plain text. This allows some additional flexibility if you want to print just one entry, or entries from a specific search result.

  • Fixes crash on OS X Yosemite 10.10 when editing records
  • Adjusts preference persistence on application start-up

  • Adds the new Password Review feature to check passwords against the database of hacked passwords
  • Adopts a new custom display for the autocomplete suggestions shown while editing fields
  • Fixes the early dismissal of the autocomplete suggestions by word boundaries (e.g. “https://“)
  • Improves layout and appearance consistency of Password Warnings and Secret Agent Action suggestions
  • Fixes a regression where clicking the Dock icon did not show the Main Window
  • Fixes the account name label displayed under the Sync menu after Google Drive authorization
  • The icon selector has been updated to fix errant highlights when using the scroll wheel
  • The icon selector now loads a heckuva lot faster and has a new layout
  • Fixes crash possible when arrowing down the Views list to Categories
