10.3: Recreate the Go -> Documents Finder menu option
Authored by: bostmass on Nov 28, '03 01:20:15PM

If you use Interface Builder to do this, it will automatically assign an ID of 852. I think having the same ID is NOT a good idea when tinkering with menu items. This hint does work and quite well. For those looking to put back the Favorites menu item, it's GoFa.

And just what is wrong with just hitting Command-Shift-G to get the Go To... window - it's a lot faster that reaching for the mouse...

10.3: Recreate the Go -> Documents Finder menu option
Authored by: bostmass on Nov 28, '03 02:20:04PM

That's a great tip as well, but you still have to type in the path to the folder you want to go to. With this tip, you simply hit command + shift + D and you're in your Documents folder. If you decide to add the Favorites menu, that would be command + shift + F. I've found the Go to folder helpful when navigating to buried folders on my harddrive, but to me it's just a little bit to much typing when you can use a shortcut key combo instead. ;)

10.3: Recreate the Go -> Documents Finder menu option
Authored by: uurf on Nov 28, '03 03:15:29PM

I used interface builder to add Documents and Favorites as Items, but have 2 questions.

Any tips on how to get each Item to display their icon (as Computer and Home do in the Go Menu)?

I tried to add Favorites as a Submenu (as it was in 10.2) but wasn't successful in getting the children to populate. I used the Recent Folders menu item as a starting point, but was not successful. Any thoughts or tips?

Thanks

Not exactly in the right hint, but as we are editing the menu bar... I remember FruityMenu has the option of changing the application name in the menu to it's icon, but I refuse to pay a shareware fee for this single purpose, and also like to minimize the ammount of apps installed on the system. Although I really liked this feature as it saved some menubar space, anyone knows what needs to be edited?
