|How do I put Processes and Recent first in FP popup|
FinderPop is proving very useful, and now I would like to explore using it for application switching regularly. I usually have a dozen apps open at any one time and latest Snow 10.6.3 is often slow switching to another app, eg from Safari using Quickeys.
So is there a way to put the Processes and Recent in the blank menu-bar FP popup menu at the top rather than the bottom. I've just read the 220 manual, and can't find how to do this there. Okay, not read, but I did look for around five minutes...
And is there a way to get the recently opened items showing as a sub-menu off an application in the Processes list? I mean in the same way that FP shows the contents of a folder and folder alias, this feature is sooo useful.
and thanks for your feedback about auto-update. much appreciated.

Command-click the menubar will give you a Processes menu
(Shift-clicking will give you FinderPop's Desktop menu)
From the manual:
So if you wanted your Processes submenu to appear at the top of every FinderPop popup, just create an empty folder in your FinderPop Items folder and rename it 00)Processes-!!p - the '00)' is an ordering prefix and the '-!!p' suffix tells FinderPop that you want this item to be a . You should probably turn off the 'Show Processes Submenu' option in the prefPane, otherwise you'll have two Processes submenus...
I'm not at my Mac right now but I thinkthe suffix '---p' will work too.
