10.6: Remove alias icon docked folders used in List view mode
Authored by: grex on Mar 04, '10 05:36:44AM
nperry, you’re right about the disadvantage. In a few “arrow-less” days I caught myself that I miss the alias indication in the list and, especially, column views. So I modified the icon file again — deleted all badges except for the 16 px size. Like you I also use docked folders, filled with aliases of applications, as launchers. Mac OS 7-8-9 habit, I guess :) But I prefer the Grid view for this, and that’s where the arrow annoys me most.

This time all was done in Preview only. Very simple, you know — select, delete, save ;)

I wish Apple brought back “Macintosh classic” indication of the alias, I mean italic font. As an option, may be.

Btw, relaunching the Finder and the Dock were enough for the arrow to show up. No computer restart required :)
