Finder Toolbar Dragpoints (AKA drop targets)
Authored by: osxpounder on Apr 12, '11 04:01:16PM

I'm glad you mentioned creating a temp folder, and putting it in Finder's toolbar, just to ease gathering files into it. Good idea!

I have a long row of icons I add to my Finder each time I set up a new Mac. My Mac doesn't feel completely set up until I've tricked out my Finder toolbar with:

Preview, Quicktime Pro, TextEdit, TextWrangler, Pic2Icon, a bulk file renamer, Photoshop, Illustrator, and then a bunch of Applescript-apps*:

Make New Text Here
Add Comment To All Selected Files
Gather Selected Files To Folder... (I might not need that one any longer)
Gather All Windows (to primary monitor)
Touch (updates date/time stamp of file)
Invisibility Toggler (restarts Finder with .hidden .dotfiles revealed)

I add and remove others often, during a job, but these are like a default set for me. Most of them I learned about here.

Another name for them might be "drop targets" or "toolbar icons" (in case others are searching for tips like this).

*Some of these are Automator apps, but you get the idea. Customizable.
