Looking at the shell script, there are references to a log folder and 3 log files-do these need to be set up manually or?
That's interesting - thanks for the report.
No, no need to set up log files, and the default log folder is your home directory.
Things to check:
- Is it creating ~/DoneToday.txt etc ?
- Have you clicked the Done button in DayOne to clear any active editing session and reveal any text from other entry-creating events ?
- Have you definitely copied the whole of the script and either pointed Hazel to a file containing it, or pasted it all into Hazel's 'Embedded Script' field ?
- If it is creating the ~/DoneToday.txt etc files, what's in them? I wonder if there's a time zone issue which I haven't got right. I happen to be sitting here on an edge case - Greenwich Mean Time ...
