No Cut option in the Finder

Submitted by Aayush on August 10, 2008 to Bug

The shortcut Cmd+X, which is reserved for the Cut command, simply does not work on items in the Finder. When you select any Finder item, the Copy option under the Edit menu gets enabled but the Cut option remains disabled.

Yes, you can (more...)

Simply enable the feature. It’s already in place but is just disabled for some weird reason.

QuickLook: Play animated GIFs

Submitted by Flauchhaus on August 13, 2008 to Annoyance, Bug

QuickLook won't play animated gif files, it just shows the first frame. Users have to use Safari or other 3rd party picture viewers to fully preview animated gifs.

Enable playing .gif animations in QuickLook, or provide a .gif plugin for QuickLook.

File list ordered differently in File Open dialog and in Finder

Submitted by Rup on August 23, 2008 to Annoyance, Bug, Usability

I like naming some of my folders starting with a "•" on my French Mac OS X system : this puts them up at the top of the list in the Finder (as in Image 1).

But when I open a File/Open or File/Save dialog in any application, (more...)

Exposé: Automatically update when a new window opens/closes

Submitted by Flauchhaus on November 17, 2008 to Aesthetics, Annoyance, Bug, Usability

When a window opens or closes while expose is activated, Exposé doesn't update automatically, so for example it leaves an "death" window space when a window closes while in expose, or when a new window opens it just shows the window in (more...)

Automatically update Exposé on new/closed windows.
The only downside i could imagine is that new windows wouldn't be that noticeable when many windows are open. A short highlighting of the new window in Exposé would fix that nicely, also (more...)

When copying or saving files to FAT32 volumes (USB Flash Drives, digital camera memory cards, media boxes, digital photo frames, mobile phones, Windows formatted hard disks etc) OS X discards the file's original creation and modification dates. (more...)

Force the Finder and OS to respect file creation and modification dates when it uses FAT32 volumes.

Unable to Preview Existing Files in Save As Dialog (Thumbnail Mode)

Submitted by purefusion on September 17, 2008 to Aesthetics, Annoyance, Bug, Icons, Legacy, Usability

I think this hits on every category. Sometimes it's a no-brainer, you just want to see the other photos and such when you're saving adjascently or overwriting an existing one.

At a minimum, allow files in the columns-view to be browsed with the side-preview. Ideally though, include a thumbnail/tile view in the Save As dialog.

Play minimized QuickTime and iTunes movies in the Dock

Submitted by vandlism on August 23, 2008 to Bug

In previous iterations of OS X, movies that were minimized in the Dock would continue to play. Currently the sound continues but we are left with a snapshot freeze-frame for the minimized window.

Minimized movies in the dock would continue playing both audio and video.

Front Row runs on primary monitor only and blanks the others

Submitted by moole on December 6, 2008 to Aesthetics, Annoyance, Bug, Usability

On a dual monitor setup, Front Row runs on primary display only, blacking all others out.
It prevents you from working on your mac while secondary display showing photos/movies/music through Front Row to your family or friends.

Give user an option to choose on which monitor Front Row will show, not blacking out any others. Route Apple Remote commands to Front Row when running.

This will allow setup Front Row for your wife/children/guests like this:

Adjust the window width to the current screen width if the window is wider than the screen.

It's absolute crap! It can't transfer folders, baulks when transferring too many files at the same time, doesn't have a search function and doesn't display any information other than file size. It forces users to copy items to the (more...)

Application icons are not refreshed when an app is freshly installed

Submitted by bastyani on September 26, 2009 to Annoyance, Bug

Usually when you install a new application or update an existing application the system uses a "default" icon for that app in the application list until you start the application.
The problem is that even when the app is started for a (more...)

If you navigate to a folder with a list view as default setting and than use Finder's "back"-button, Finder remembers the list view, despite the parent folder has not set this as the default view.
