Rubin emails to ask:
I was reading your new post on Address Book syncing and backup, and I noticed on the screen capture that you had a little Yojimbo icon on your Finder windows. I’m a Yojimbo user and a big fan too. How did you get this little icon and what does it do?
While the Finder Toolbar can be expanded with many useful pre-defined extras (Control-Click on Finder’s Toolbar and select “Customize Toolbar…”), you can also add your own favourite items:
I dragged some of the apps that I use a lot (TextMate, Terminal, Yojimbo) from the Applications folder onto the Toolbar. That creates a shortcut on the Toolbar. Now I can quickly launch the apps by clicking on these icons and, more importantly, I can drag files onto the icons to open them.
I’ve also added on the right some of the folders into which I often need to file things. When tidying up, I drag the files onto those folders and they’re filed.
Of course, there are other ways to do these things, not least Quicksilver, but another option is always welcome.
- New Mail Stamp Icons: Simpsons, Mario Brothers, UK stamps
- Closing and opening the Mailbox drawer
- Hacking Mail.app’s interface
- Faster text dragging in Cocoa apps (like Mail)
- Change Apple Mail’s Dock icon
