Butler, Butler, Sidebar, App Switcher. Did I mention Butler?
Authored by: galaher on Mar 16, '06 09:26:26AM

Whatever the set up, I've found it takes a little mental commitment to learn the new muscle memory and work habits behind a more efficient work flow. Recently as I've grown more familiar with Butler I've started using that not only to start apps but to by-pass the Application Switcher or Dock and go straight to an app (by going through the same motions as if I was launching it) as well.

I've also set my Mighty Mouse scroll pee to activate the Application Switcher, which I also use more and more. These two things have essentially replaced my Dock, with the exception of the need to drag files to apps not in my Sidebar.
Sidebar gets most of the dragging because it generally several hundred pixels closer than the Dock.

Also a down side of hiding the Dock, is it takes a while to see where an application is. This goes for the Application Switcher as well, because apps move around based on last used. I find with Butler there is no mouse and no looking around. I can activate an application or bring it to the fore with my eyes closed.

P.S. I know there have been hints to increase "Save Sheet" animation speed, but what I'd really like is to increase my Dock Unhide speed. I haven't found that on this site. Anyone?
