Just press Command when that menu is showing, and all the Applications and Documents change to "Show ... in Finder." This feature is new as of Mac OS X 10.6.3 Snow Leopard.

I have Aperture 3.0.2 and OS 10.6.3. When I downloaded the Aperture Update 3.0.3 and tried to install it, a message came up saying I needed Aperture 3.0 or later to install 3.0.3. I have therefore been unable to install the update. Any solutions, anyone?
