Show additional item information in 10.2 Desktop
While tooling around Jaguar, I noticed a feature in the View Options: Show Item Info. When you enable it, it will show a little bit of information under icons. For example, under each drive it shows how large the drive is. Under a folder, it tells how many items there are in the folder. Under MP3s and TIFFs, it shows the song length and picture size, respectively. To turn it on for a window, go to the View menu -> Show View Options. Click "Show Item Info".

Too bad there's no key combo to toggle it.

Change Color!
Authored by: nick2588 on Sep 05, '02 06:16:23PM

Does anyone know how the color can be changed?

The blue is kinda light, and I would like something with a little more contrast (or something more interesting, like red). I think the color SHOULD be the selection color in the General pane in System Preferences, but that is not the case. :-(

How to change the color of "item info" text in 10.2.

This is a pretty simple edit. Required: ThemPark and an copy of the Extras.rsrc (System/Library/ Frameworks/Carbon.framework/Versions/A/Frameworks/HIToolbox.frameworks/Resources ) Make a copy (option drag to the desktop) Open the Extras in Thempark select clr# (384) edit the last color which is the original light blue. Click on it and change the color to any color you want. Then save and close the program. Either login as root or reboot in OS9. and replace the old extras with the new edited Extras. Restart or login. That is it. It is that simple.

network volumes

This would be bad to use on slow network volumes that have a lot of folders. Belive me, I tried it.
