FinderPop 2.5.6
FinderPop 2.5.6 (tagged "Summer Holidays!") is now available.

Ensure that the System Preferences panel is CLOSED. Quit. Not running. Double-click the FinderPop.prefpane icon. System Preferences will
open and ask if you want to install FinderPop for all users or just you. Choose "All Users" and continue.
On 10.6+, FinderPop "sees" what it was you clicked on in the Finder via the Services subsystem - ensure that you have Folder Actions Setup
enabled: System Preferences > Keyboard Shortcuts > Services > Files & Folders > (ensure Folder Actions Setup is checked.)

  • 2.5.6 fixes a possible minor bug in finderpop-daemon.
  • Add Move To... and Copy To... Applescripts to the 'FinderPop Extras' folder. These can be moved into your FinderPop Items folder if you wish.
    These scripts will only be visible in FP menus if you have a Finder selection; they allow you to choose a destination folder into which to move or copy the selection.
    NB: These use low-level Unix 'mv' and 'cp' commands to do the heavy lifting, and any similarly-named existing items in the destination folder WILL BE OVERWRITTEN. So be sure you know what you're doing before using these! The scripts will display a warning to this effect on first usage.
    Added bonus: option-clicking the "Choose" button in the "Choose Folder" dialog will get the Finder to display the destination folder after the items have been moved or copied.

The previous beta version of FinderPop is available here (2.5.5).

If you're installing this over a previous version of FinderPop, you'll have to restart or logout/login for it to take effect.

As usual, if there are any issues with this, reply here in the forum!
