All iOS apps are available on the App Store only. Mac apps are always available directly on this website, some are on the Mac App Store and others are available on the subscription service Setapp along with many other great apps. Every Mac app has a test version that can be downloaded on the product page. The full version can then be unlocked by buying a license from within the app.
Generally all versions (Mac App Store, Website or Setapp) have exactly the same features. Sometimes there are updates that fix an issue that only exists in one of versions, so the version number might be slightly different.
From time to time the the minimum system requirements of an app are being raised. You may want to download an older version in order to run it on an older macOS version.

Make sure you try different filters with lower dpi and less image quality. You may also want to configure a profile to remove annotations, notes and resources from your file to help decrease the size.
If you want to compress a file that has been locked in order to prevent others from opening it, you will be asked for a (user) password. PDF Squeezer will then unlock it in order to get access to its content during compression. You may also be asked for an owner password if it has been set to prevent someone from modifying the file. All passwords get reapplied to the compressed file.
In September of 2018 Apple released macOS 10.14 Mojave. With this update Apple introduced a bug in one of the system components which resulted in poor compression results for some files. The issue has been fixed with version 3.10 of PDF Squeezer. So make sure you are using the latest version.
Did you scan the correct IP range? Make sure that the devices you miss are turned on and connected to your network. Some devices such as smartphones often turn off their Wi-Fi in order to save energy if they are not being used. In most cases refreshing your scan helps.
Please click the question mark next to the status in the host properties view.
Network Radar looks up the vendor OUI (Organisationally Unique Identifier) of a MAC address in a local database. Hosts that have MAC addresses, registered after the most recent release of Network Radar are not included in that database.
Hosts that have been found with the last refresh of a Scan are being displayed with a bold text.
You may want to import your existing snippets into Rocket Typist. Rocket Typist supports the following formats: .rockettypist, .CSV, .textexpander, .typeit4me
Chose „Import…“ from the File menu and select one or multiple files of the above format. You can also right- or ctrl-click a file in Finder and chose „Rocket Typist“ from the „Open with…“ menu.
You can only shut down, restart or send a device to sleep if it is a Mac running macOS.
If you want to control a device that is connected to a network outside of your local network do the following:
Some kinds of Apple Script control applications such as the Finder. Starting with macOS 10.14 Mojave, Apple makes it more transparent how apps access or control parts of your Mac. That's why you might get messages like the one above on the Mac that receives the Apple Script command via SSH. You only have to click 'OK' the first time you execute the script. The message above was triggered by the following Apple script:
tell application "Finder" to beep
You can set a password to protect your files either from opening (user password) or copying, printing and editing (owner password), or both. If a file has been encrypted with both the user and owner password you have to know the owner password in order to remove the encryption. Note that some software allows to remove an Owner Password without knowing it. However, it's not possible to remove a User Password. The User Password and the Owner Password has to be different.
This issue happens if you set only one of the owner password options (coping or printing). Therefore I recommend checking both options as a workaround until Apple has fixed the bug.
