Help please! How can I use older workspaces in OmniWeb v6.0 test (r318604)?


Hi all,

for a long time, I kept running Mavericks on my “communication” Mac and therefore was stuck with an older (2014) version of OmniWeb (v6.0 test (v625 r219164)) which still saved its data in ~/Library/Application Support/OmniWeb 5/. Now I have finally upgraded to Mojave and OmniWeb v6.0 test (v630 r318604).

I found that OmniWeb had lost all its settings as it’s now using ~/Library/Containers/com.omnigroup.OmniWeb6/Data/Library/Application Support/OmniWeb/ as its data directory. So I copied all my data from the old to the new data directory.

That worked fine for everything from bookmarks over history to cookies, except for the workspaces. They appear in the Workspaces menu, but as soon as I click on any of them, OmniWeb crashes.

This is fatal for me as I have countless workspaces that organize all my work. What can I do to “migrate” workspaces correctly so that the current version of OmniWeb can use them?

Any help is greatly appreciated. Thanks!
