Fix the script menu icon Desktop
Someone over at the AppleScript Discussion boards grumbled about the lousy black icon that
ScriptMenu.menu
displays. He also mentioned that when you click-hold on it, a perfecly good icon shows up ... that got me thinking that maybe somebody accidently swapped the icon and the mask file names. So here's how to switch them:
  1. 1) find ScriptMenu.menu on your hard drive.
  2. click-hold on it and select "Show package contents"
  3. navigate to ScriptMenu.menu/Contents/Resources
  4. make backups of these two files (in case you want to put it back the other way or doing the hack causes some unforseen problem): 9likemenumask2.tiff and blackmask2.tiff
  5. swap their filenames
  6. log out, log back in
Now the black mask will be used when you click and hold, and the whitish one will be the default.

[Editor's note: I'm not sure if they're reversed or not; ScriptMenu.menu looks and behaves just like the other menubar additions I have ... but if it bothers you, certainly no harm should come from swapping a couple of TIFF filenames around!]
