Hi Frederico,

Thanks again. FruitMenu note taken.

As to your ack.. I think it's valid both ways, actually:)

Remove shortcuts from applications
Authored by: Frederico on Jun 27, '04 03:08:58AM

I just discovered Yet Another Utility that handles script execution via keystroke, if desired: the excellent Drop Drawers. I must say, I'm embarrassed to admit that I have no idea how long this feature has been a part of the program. I use it extensively as an application launcher for all those apps I use which I do not use often enough to give a keystroke shortcut; having a visual pop-up(out/over/down/etc) of applications in any given group is much nicer, IMHO, than sorting through your applications directories.

It can also host a myriad of things from clippings to aliases, sounds and movies, and more. It even does one more thing that I sorely miss from the Legacy Mac OS Popup (tabbed) Finder windows, and that is to allow a folder alias to act as a proxy for drag'n'drop operations. If only it could allow a drawer to act exactly as an old fashioned Legacy Popup, displaying its contents and allowing sorting and access as a Finder window does It does, at least allow for contextual access to a folder's contents.

Now that I know it also does keystrokes and rapid script execution, I will probably shift a large chunk of KM's usage to it, if only because it has a much more elegant setup interface. KM still provides invaluable window switching options (Cntrl-Tilde per focussed app), even if its app switching option has been effectively killed as of Panther (although it still offers advanced enhanced features there, too). It also hosts a nifty multiple clipboard feature, too. KM also allows for application-specific keystroke isolation (as does Panther KB PP, MenuMaster), which Drop Drawers apparently cannot.
