Regarding Comments - 9 vs. X
Authored by: esyring on Nov 01, '01 02:27:31AM

Does anyone know how to access 9 Comments when in X?

From the Apple Knowledgebase:
Mac OS X 10.x, Mac OS 9.x: Info Comments Do Not Appear

Article ID:


Mac OS X and Mac OS 9.x do not display each others Info window comments.



Comments that you typed in the Info window for an item do not appear.

Products affected
Mac OS X 10.x
Mac OS 9.x


The Get Info command in the Mac OS 9 Finder and the Show Info command in the Mac OS X Finder both open an Info window that displays various facts about the selected item. The Info window also has a Comments field in which you can type notes about the selected item.

Mac OS 9 and Mac OS X store file Comments separately. Comments entered in the Info window when started up from Mac OS 9 do not appear in the Info window when started up from Mac OS X (and vice versa).

This is a known behavior of Mac OS 9 and Mac OS X and does not indicate any issue with your computer's software.
