Customize Open/Save Dialog Sidebars

You can customize the sidebar in an Open/Save dialog the same way you can in a Finder window: you can reorder the position of items, drag them off into puff-of-smoke oblivion, and even drag a folder from the dialog's list into the sidebar.

Mactracker 6.0

Send Article to a Friend

Ian Page has released version 6.0 of his encyclopedia of Apple hardware, Mactracker, adding new features and updates to its extensive database of nearly every Apple hardware product ever made. Each entry contains plenty of detail, including technical specs, the original sale price in 10 different markets, and benchmarking data (you can even compare the specifications of up to four devices). The most significant enhancement is a complete overhaul of the app’s interface, featuring a new in-window search function and “smart categories” whose contents are based on a search query.

Ian Page did a great job, again!
While I like the link to manuals, the link took me to a page on with several different manuals, meaning that I had to refer back to Mactracker for the correct one.
