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.
