What about Command-Down Arrow
Authored by: Anonymous on Feb 05, '02 12:35:29AM

Command-Down Arrow does not behave that way on my system, it just opens the folder in the current finder window. Regardless, even if it did, that is nothing like what the modified script does. Try downloading it from my homepage (http://homepage.mac.com/yuriwho), drag the script to the dock and next time you need to copy some files somewhere, just click the script icon in the dock. (note you may have to edit the first few lines in the script to adjust it for your preferred set-up...dock at the bottom, different screen resolution etc.)

Agreed, your applet is much more elaborate, but that doesn't change the fact that on my System Command-Down Arrow on an open folder window -- or on a selected folder in column view -- clones the window.

Doug -

Cmd-downarrow does not open folders in new windows on my system. I suspect you have your Finder prefs set to "always open folders in new windows."

very curious..

command-down arrow works fine on my system, cloning the current window, and I *definitely* don't have my Finder prefs set to "always open folders in new windows."

interestingly, it only clones 1 copy, then it flips back to the original and back and forth. Clones of clones works fine too.
