Opening a Folder from the Dock

Sick of the dock on Mac OS X Leopard not being able to open folders with a simple click, like sanity demands and like it used to be in Tiger? You can, of course click it, and then click again on Open in Finder, but that's twice as many clicks as it used to be. (And while you're at it, Control-click the folder, and choose both Display as Folder and View Content as List from the contextual menu. Once you have the content displaying as a list, there's an Open command right there, but that requires Control-clicking and choosing a menu item.) The closest you can get to opening a docked folder with a single click is Command-click, which opens its enclosing folder. However, if you instead put a file from the docked folder in the Dock, and Command-click that file, you'll see the folder you want. Of course, if you forget to press Command when clicking, you'll open the file, which may be even more annoying.

Rogue Amoeba has updated Audio Hijack Pro to version 2.10.6, which also updates the Instant On component to version 6.0.2 in order to improve audio capture from VMware Fusion (as well as other unspecified apps). The latest version Audio Hijack Pro also improves capture from the Zoiper and Bria 3 softphone apps, adds ID3 tags to AIFF recordings for viewing in iTunes, fixes a bug that caused future timers to fail to be scheduled, addresses multiple AppleScript support issues, corrects display of the 4FX plug-in in the Effects area, and restores audio capture from iSight cameras. ($32 new with a 20-percent discount for TidBITS members, free update, 5.6 MB, release notes)

Thanks for letting your readers know. This is one app I've never regretted purchasing.

I have v2.9.9 installed, and when I ask it to check for updates, it tells me I have the most current version installed.

Any thoughts, anyone?

I'd recommend just going to Rogue Amoeba's site, downloading the trial version (which will be 2.10.6, I imagine), and installing it over the version you have. It should pick up the license details fine.

Thanks. I'll give it a try!
