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...)

Weeknumbers in iCal

Submitted by basvdijk on August 17, 2008 to Annoyance, Usability

Sometime one asked me to make an appointment for example in week 32. In iCal there is no way to see what week number a week has. There is a workaround in subscribing yourself to an online calendar which has the weeknumbers as an appointment.

(more...)

Add a possibility to display the weeknumbers next to the mini calendars.

Allow minimized windows the ability to be closed via contextual menu

Submitted by migueld on December 19, 2008 to Usability

Some programs allow minimized windows to be closed such as iTunes, Word and Finder. However most programs don't. It would be useful if all programs had this functionality.

Allow minimized windows the ability to be closed via the contextual menu.

Improve the UI for multiple monitors

Submitted by Drdul on October 4, 2008 to Usability

OS X was developed in the days when a single 19 inch monitor was hot stuff. It was not designed for multiple monitors. As a result, it reduces the potential usability and productivity improvements that multiple monitors provide. Now that big LCDs are (more...)

There are lots of potential solutions. I'll leave it to the nice people at Apple to figure out which ones work best, but here are some ideas:

• Multiple docks
• Stretch the menu bar across the top of all monitors, or multiple (more...)

Submitted by MicrowaveDave on October 1, 2008 to Annoyance, Bug, Usability

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...)

When viewing movie trailers from App Store iTunes gives you no indication of how much of the video file has already been downloaded (buffered). On slow network connections you just have to sit there guessing whether the file is being dowloaded/buffered (more...)

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.

Inconsistency in OSX Leopard Mac-Native Aqua Apps

Submitted by hoopla_punta on August 10, 2008 to Aesthetics, Icons

OSX Leopard has 3 "aqua styles" (kinda a made up theory):
First, the "grey buttons" which is found in Finder, Safari, iCal...
Next, the "bubble buttons" which is found in Mail and Preview
These two share (more...)

Change all the bubble style icons to grey icons.

or give the option to have Mac-Native Apps to have either grey or bubble icons.
