Content only
I use FinderPop mainly to get a contextual menu with one button only. In version 2.2 however, when clicking on a folder I get the content only. I simply do not manage to uncheck the "Content if on folder" checkbox.

What did I miss? Best thanks for your help.

Re: Content only
So are you saying that the "Contents if on Folder" checkbox ignores your clicks? Or that it does change state but FinderPop does not reflect the changes?

You probably noticed that FP changed the way control-free-popup works with version 2.2 - you now click and hold until the cursor changes to the contextual menu cursor, then let go the button, and continue from there...

Re: Content only
I'm sorry for my late reply. Yes, indeed, I click on the checkbox but it does not uncheck.

As for the changes compared to earlier versions, I think I got them. Thanks for caring.

Re: Content only
Are you by any chance using a localised version of FinderPop? It could be that I or a localiser accidentally broke that checkbox. It seems to work fine on my machine (the familiar cry of developers everywhere!)

Re: Content only
I just now realised that I didn't tell you the obvious workaround, sorry about that, I could have sworn I did :?
In a Terminal window, type

defaults write com.finderpop.finderpop controlFreePopupContentsMenu -bool false

This will turn off control-free Contents Menu popups - you'll just get a normal contextual menu.

Re: Content only
Best thanks, now it's working as in earlier times.

Indeed, I use the German localized version.
