10.4: Remove arrows from aliases
Authored by: DavidRavenMoon on Nov 09, '05 06:15:17AM

System 7 used italic type to signify an alias... it didn't have the arrows. I don't remember when they started using the arrows, but OS 9 does have them.

G5/2.7GHz x 2, 1.5 GB, Mac OS X 10.4.3

10.4: Remove arrows from aliases
Authored by: magnamous on Nov 11, '05 02:09:48PM

Does anyone know why Apple stopped using italics for aliases? I really liked it. I have nothing in particular against the arrow badges, but I think it would be good to have the italics, too. That way there's a textual reinforcement of the fact that the file is an alias in addition to a graphical one...
