10.4: Enable hidden disk image formats in Disk Utility

Along the same lines, what are you asking when you state "How do you do that?"

What's "that?" The hint explained it. Are you asking how to do something else? Maybe we need a better explanation from you, first. :)

10.4: Enable hidden disk image formats in Disk Utility

His point is that he probably has Developer Tools installed but did not get the extra options by default in Disk Image.app. He is wondering how GP managed to get the options if he did not do what the OP did.

I have the same experience. I have Developer Tools, but the advanced options aren't available. If I perform the defaults operation indicated, I get the options.

So what did GP do if he didn't change the defaults?

Maybe it has to do with wich version of OS and XCode one has installed. For example, I have 10.4.1 and XCode 2.1 and can see all options.

That is the same software I have and I didn't have to do this hint to get the extras. Funny, I just noticed this the other day, I'm used to creating disk images with `hdiutil`.

Sometimes I believe that the most obvious answer is most likely the correct one...
I think it is safe to assume that either:
- He ran this command in terminal a while ago and just doesn't remember.
- Someone else did and he dooesn't know.
- He ran a system mod utility like "TinkerTool" and used an option in there (there is one to do this in TinkerTool). [or someone else did]
- Aliens have abducted his computer and did t themselves (although this is redundand, because it would full under the second category).

It is also possible that he stared using Tiger with a clean install of a developer build. As far as I know, the first two beta releases had the advanced formats in Disk Utility enabled by default. All GM versions should have it disabled BY DEFAULT, with or without the dev tools installed.
