Easy pausing with iTunes
Authored by: Graff on Jun 26, '04 01:57:39AM

You can get around the menu by doing this:

  1. Open Script Editor (located in /Applications/AppleScript/)
  2. Enter this into the new window:
    tell application "iTunes"
    	if player state is not playing then
    		play
    	else
    		pause
    	end if
    end tell
  3. Go to the menu item File->Save
  4. Select Application as the File Format
  5. Make sure none of the Options are checked
  6. Name it something like "Toggle iTunes.app"
  7. Hit the Save button
  8. Drag the application from wherever you saved it to the Dock.

Now just click the new item in the dock to toggle iTunes between playing and paused. It will even launch iTunes and start if playing if it is not already running.
