little problem with 10.6
I finally upgraded to 10.6 ^^''
but I have a little proplem with FinderPop

If I use shortcuts type "p" or "i" the menu closes immediately and opens the Finder info window.
only works if I hold down the mouse button

any suggestions?

thanks in advance

Re: little problem with 10.6
Isn't that the expected behavior as described in FinderPop Help?

Re: little problem with 10.6
First (10.5) I clicked once, relase the mouse button and sailed in the contestual menu.
Now I have to hold down the mouse button (all the time), otherwise open the Finder info window when invoking the shortcuts "p" or "i"

ps: If I invoke FP from the menubar, it works well as 10.4
one described above happens to me by clicking on the object or invoking FP for example by clicking on the desktop

If this is normal in 10.6 we can close the post with my apologies:)

Re: little problem with 10.6
I think on Lion I had to make the keystroke be handled immediately as opposed to just changing the cursor. I'll look at this again but I remember tearing my hair out before...
[Edit: I should have said "on Snow Leopard and Lion" ]

The FinderPop menubar clicks are still handled by a 32-bit Carbon app so that works as before.

Re: little problem with 10.6
Well, also in 10.6 (Snow Leopard) it works as Liki describes:
When I navigate through the FP menu while keeping the mouse button pressed, FP info for the file appears when pressing "i" over a file icon, but when I press "i" while navigating through the menu without holding the mouse button, FP info appears for a split second, and then the Finder Info panel opens.

When I do the same with pressing option-command instead of "i", in both situations only the FP info for the file appears.

When I read FP Help, it seems to describe this difference between pressing "i" and pressing option-command. I assumed this to be the behaviour I should expect.

I pressed the button when I need the preview
