Re: High Sierra, anyone?
Many thanks, Turly; that worked.

Whew, life without FinderPop was looking pretty grim.

Re: High Sierra, anyone?
I performed the same steps (above) after upgrading a Sierra.6 installation to High Sierra and then installing the 10.13.2 combo updater.

The osax file was missing from /System/Library/ScriptingAdditions where I had put it under Sierra months ago. Presumably, High Sierra's installer deleted it.

Luckily, I had a clone of my Sierra installation on an external hard drive and copied the osax file from the clone to /System/Library/ScriptingAdditions in my High Sierra installation.

After cold booting with SIP enabled, FinderPop did not function. Instead, an error alert displayed which stated "Sorry this version of FinderPop is not compatible with Mac OS 10.13—this computer has 10.13.2."

What do I need to do to get FP functioning (with or without the menubar item)—disable SIP?

Thanks in advance for pointers/tips/assistance.

Touch FinderPop Extra works on one Mac, not on another
I have FP 2.5 installed on two Macs, both running Mountain Lion.4.

One Mac has FP installed in the user PreferencePanes folder, the other has it installed in the System folder's PreferencePanes folder (FileVault is turned on).

The "Touch" FinderPop Extra (installed in the FinderPop Items folder in the user Library folder) works flawlessly on the former Mac, does not work at all on the latter.

What needs to be done to get Touch working properly on the Mac with FinderPop installed in the System folder's PreferencePanes folder?

Many thanks in advance!

Re: FinderPop 2.2.8 unexpected behaviors
Hi Turly,

Many thanks for the helpful reply!

WindowShade 5.0.2

Issues 2 and 3 have resolved after cold rebooting (three times, just to make sure!).

Only (known) issue 1 remains.

Yes, I downloaded FP2.2.9 yesterday and still need to install it.

Thanks again and cheers!

FinderPop 2.2.8 unexpected behaviors

FinderPop 2.2.8
Snow Leopard.3

I am experiencing the following unexpected behaviors.

• pressing i or command option while a file is selected in a FinderPop menu displays the Finder's Get Info window instead of FinderPop's Info pane

• selecting an item in the Finder and then navigating through FinderPop to a destination folder or volume results in the destination displaying in a Finder window rather than displaying FinderPop's dialog which presents options to move, copy, alias, or do nothing

• if I right-click or two-finger tap (on a MacBook Pro) a folder, the resulting FinderPop menu is missing the submenu for that folder even though the Contents option is checked in FinderPop System Preference

Could the above be related to having installed Unsanity's new APE (2.6) for Snow Leopard?

Many thanks and cheers!
