Hi, does anyone know if Scapple works on El Capitan?

I've been using it for a couple of days on the El Capitan Gold Master (i.e. the latest before yesterday's full release) and found no problems.

It seems to work for me too, but for some reason I can no longer see the Scapple folder in the iCloud Drive. I know the files are there because I can open the recent files and I can find them in terminal, but File>Open doesn't show me the Scapple folder.

The same happens to me under El Capitan. The Scapple folder cannot be seen in the iCloud and I need to use the recent files to open old ones. When saving a new file it ends up in the root folder of iCloud.
Is this a common error and will it be fixed?

Is there any word yet on when the issue with Scapple and the inaccessible iCloud folder will be addressed?
It is not the end of the world, but it is irritating to loose a feature that was working perfectly before the OS update.

A while back Apple changed how iCloud works so that instead of programs having little separate buckets that only they could use, it now uses a more centralised system the likes of which Dropbox popularised. Could it be the files just need to be moved or copied into the main iCloud area that so that everything, including Scapple, can access them?

Hi Amber,

    A while back Apple changed how iCloud works so that instead of programs having little separate buckets that only they could use, it now uses a more centralised system the likes of which Dropbox popularised.

I don't think this is the issue here. Scapple worked with its own iCloud folder before El Capitan, but not after it. The fact that Apple made some changes is neither here nor there. Other programs that employed the iCloud file system transitioned with no issues. I use Pages and Numbers from Apple, but also Pixelmator, Napkin and others from independent developers and they all handled the upgrade without encountering this problem. Scapple however has not transitioned in this way.

I think the fact that Scapple will still offer the option to save a file to the iCloud specific Scapple folder, but then not show this folder in the Finder shows that it is broken. Is there a time frame for this getting fixed?

Regards Keith.

I was wondering the same thing.
No trace of the Scapple folder on iCloud :(
