Finder: better switching between Finder windows

Submitted by bastyani on August 23, 2009 to Usability

Better switching between Finder windows should be implemented.
For that purpose I now have to use extra plugins (witch) so I can switch between
Finder windows with alt-tab shortcut.

A solution similar to witch.

Quick Look: does not play .m1v (mpeg) files

Submitted by bastyani on August 23, 2009 to Usability

Using Quick Look we cannot preview mpeg files with .m1v extension.
We can successfully playback .mpg files. The m1v file is essentially the same
as mpg with the difference that there is no audio layer included. We make
a lot of (more...)

Just enable the m1v playback as it is essentially the same format as mpg.

SHA1

Submitted by anonymous on August 17, 2009 to Annoyance, Usability

file properties dialog (option i) does not show any checksums.

sha1 would be useful as it is used to validate downloads. i think the impact would be medium as support calls around validation (macosx combo updates, etc) no longer have complex terminal and command-line usage instructions.

Turning off display (sleep display) on an Imac via ctrl-sift-eject, buggy behavior

Submitted by Tumki on August 8, 2009 to Annoyance, Bug

When turning off my display via ctrl-shift-eject, or using a hot-corner, to put my display to sleep will not work. My display goes to sleep for 2 - 3 seconds and then comes back on, even when no applications are running (at least that i'm aware of). (more...)

I would expect the 'sleep display' to work in the same way as the screensaver. When I leave my Imac on during the night while running a rendering or something like that, I would like my display to be off completely. Not a screensaver running, (more...)

"delete" & "rename" option during "open" & "save as" dialogs!

Submitted by lukasdesign on July 20, 2009 to Annoyance, Usability

Often when I save files I would love to rename an existing file, in order to keep the new and the old file name's coherent....but I can't do that on the fly! I would love to be able to rename (or move to trash) from within the program's (more...)

Ugly "loading" mouse cursor

Submitted by mojo2012 on July 16, 2009 to Aesthetics

Sometimes a realy ugly loading cursor appears. It seems to be a watch/clock. I think this is something like the "small" loading cursor on windows (mouse cursor + small hour glass).

Remove the cursor or make a nice beachball-like one!

Finder: Folders first please! (folders on top)

Submitted by victoranselme on July 14, 2009 to Aesthetics, Annoyance, Usability

When I open Finder and try to find some file I have to scroll all the page down to see the folders. And this is so anoying, because I have to scroll down a hundred times to find something.

Folders should be first "type of file", and be always the first to appear in each drive, folder or subfolder on Finder and on Open / Save dialogs of all Apps.

Apple could create a button “show folders first”. Thus who want (more...)

Safari: move "show history" to the top of the history menu

Submitted by mojo2012 on July 9, 2009 to Annoyance

Everytime I want to show the whole history respectivly, all bookmarks, I don't know, where the items are. Show all bookmarks is a the top, show history is at the bottom. This is quite confusing.

Move "show history" to the top of the menu.

Finder: automatically disable icon preview for icon sizes below a certain size

Submitted by mojo2012 on July 7, 2009 to Aesthetics, Usability

I like to have 16x16 icons for certain folders with many content. The problem is, that document files, eg. txt, pdf, doc, etc., have a preview, others, like dmg don't have previews. This makes some files/filetypes unrecognizable.

It would be better, if the preview would be AUTOMATICALLY disabled for small icon sizes. So, If I change from icon view to list view (very small icons) the preview should be disabled automatically.


And yes, I know, that I can disable (more...)

Stacks should update changes such as renaming and custom icons

Submitted by migueld on June 30, 2009 to Usability

When making changes such as renaming files, or customizing icons, they are not updated on a stack. For example, when renaming a file, if the stack is sorted by name, it doesn't re-arrange by the new naming. Also when customizing icons within a folder, (more...)

Stacks should update any and all changes such as renaming and custom icons.

Finder: use the searchbox for filtering of folder contents

Submitted by mojo2012 on June 24, 2009 to Usability

The searchbox in the finder window is somehow broken. The fact that everytime you enter a search term the whole computer is searched is simply not understandable (from my point of view).

I (partly) like the way the "searchbox" in vista/win7 works. So I'have an idea how to adapt such a behaviour to Mac OS X:
If you enter text (without pressing return) into the seachbox of a finder window then the folder contents should (more...)

Finder: opening file removes undo option

Submitted by mojo2012 on June 20, 2009 to Annoyance, Bug, Usability

Most of the operations that can be done though finder can be undone afterwards, eg. renaming the fileextension. But if you open a file after doing something, the last operation cannot be undone anymore.

In my case I sometimes get ISO files (more...)

Allow undo even after opening a file between the opening process and the last operation.

Finder: listview and copying files with keyboardshortcut

Submitted by mojo2012 on June 20, 2009 to Annoyance, Bug, Usability

If the Finder is in listview and a sub folder is opened with the "triangle" symbol, the shortcut cmd-v doesn't paste the file in the opened/selected subfolder but in the main folder that is opened in the current finder window.

(more...)

If a sub folder in listview is "opened" (triangle top is on the bottom) and the folder or a file in the folder is selected, then a cmd-v should paste the file into this folder, and not in the folder that is currently shown in the finder window.

Multimonitor: autodetection fails after unplugging second monitor

Submitted by mojo2012 on June 14, 2009 to Annoyance, Bug, Usability

I have a Macbook Pro and sometimes I connect an external monitor and use it as the main screen. The internal screen is disabled (booting with closed lid). When opening the lid, the internal screen stays black, but after unplugging the external screen, (more...)

Pressing F7 on Macbook Pro should not only rotate the display mode but include the autodetection to check if the second screen is still there.

(I don't know how other Macs handle that).
