10.3: Conserve screen space with an icon-only sidebar
Authored by: AKS9 on Dec 28, '03 07:14:16AM

I have custom icons in all the folders in my sidebar, you just need to re-launch the Finder to see them.

10.3: Conserve screen space with an icon-only sidebar
Authored by: Starfighter on Dec 28, '03 09:51:26AM

This is indeed wonderful information! The only downside I can find to this is that my LaCie external HD icon no longer shows the "eject" button when it is an icon-only sidebar. I like the eject button here for convenience. Still, more screen real estate is a plus! Thanks for the tip!

Why not just widen the bar a bit, so you have the first few letters of the name, and the eject button? It's not quite as pretty, but... :)

Does anyone know (when it is expanded) how to prevent the sidebar from resizing when, for example, you mount volumes with particularly long names? Its really bugging me!

I also missed having an eject button (for both external drives and mounted disk images), so I control-clicked the top of a Finder window, chose Customize Toolbar, and added an eject button (along with a whole bunch of other stuff, truth be told) to the top of the window.

Yeah, I just tested it and custom icons show properly for me as well. The original poster seems pretty high on "Apple thinking of everything, eventually" though... so perhaps they'll think of making custom icons work in the sidebar, for everyone, eventually. ;-)
