'Open Recent' setting in System Prefs also affects programs
Authored by: the_webmaestro on May 19, '10 02:30:52PM

I think it's a 'bug...' Then again I don't understand why anyone uses MSIE...

This 'bug' didn't affect me in Mac OS X 10.5. As far as

I like seeing recent documents in Preview and other apps, and wondered why I didn't see any lately. I was getting ready to surf through the Apple & MacOSXHints forums to determine the problem. Having recently received a Mac Pro running Snow Leopard, I was surprised and dismayed that Preview didn't retain its own list of 'Recents'.

At the very least, it would be good to have a setting to be able to override the global setting on an App-by-App basis.

Happy Dad
