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.

Delicious Library 3.1.4

Send Article to a Friend

Delicious Monster has released Delicious Library 3.1.4 with a modicum of fixes solely for OS X 10.9 Mavericks, including an issue that randomly indented or strangely layered source list items and a bug where shelf items no longer animated when resized or zoomed. The update to the media cataloging app (reviewed by Josh Centers; see “FunBITS: Delicious Library 3,” 1 November 2013) also works around a problem where shelf items without a graphic cover wouldn’t receive a placeholder cover. Delicious Monster also notes that there are two crashes associated with the GeForce graphics drivers found in OS X 10.9.1 that affect 2013 MacBook Pro and iMac models, but they’ve been reported to Apple and it’s hoped that the next Mavericks update will solve them. ($25 new from Delicious Monster Web site and Mac App Store, free update, 77.4 MB)

Comments about Delicious Library 3.1.4

Just downloaded the latest upgrade yesterday on my mac for delicious library 3 to version 3.1.4. This upgrade has resulted in several different problems with the software now. 1) When I try to add a new item, the item shows as listed but does not display until I close the program and reopen. 2) The items on the shelves now do not display properly, one item at the far right will be half off the shelf and semi-hidden. 3) The icons at the bottom do not change to the actual items screen, i.e., movies, books, gadgets, games, etc, but only changes to the assigned wood for that group. Granted now the indentation problem on the left for all the shelves has been fixed but it resulted in various other problems which are worse than before! Please help fix this! Thank you!

I think you'll need to contact Delicious Monster support on this one - it sounds like a problem with the update, not something that a configuration tweak could fix.
