Edit iTunes Smart Playlists via Option-click
Authored by: simonvx on Aug 01, '06 07:37:07PM

I agree. Maybe I wasn't clear, but that's about my point. Still, there's no easy way to know you're in a "one-window-app". Even these apps could remain open when the main window is closed. Why not? I'm sure I've seen some. You'd just have to go in the "Window" menu and bring back the main (or we could say, the only) window.

Oh, by the way, in iTunes, if I close the window, the app remains open. If we follow the logic, it's ok: in iTunes, you can have more than one window open. Try double-clicking a playlist icon: it opens in a new window.

So to clear up what I wanted to say with my dad's situation: he tends to close windows with the red button, which is ok. When it's the last or the only window open, he expects the app to quit, like in Windows. So he ended up with all these apps opened (befor he knew about that triangle under running apps in the dock). I told him it didn't work like that in Macs, that you use Quit etc., but it's still weird that if you "red-button-click" the window in iTunes, it doesn't close the app, but in iPhoto (a one-window-app), it does. It may be consistent according to Apple's GUI guidelines and logic, but it certainly feels inconsistent.
VoilĂ !
