Copy Disk Image as Folder

When you open a .dmg file, a disk image is mounted. You are then generally supposed to copy the contents of that disk image to your hard drive (to your Desktop, your Applications folder, or wherever). But what if you want to copy the whole disk image, including all its contents, as a folder? Hold the Option key, and drag the "proxy icon" in the title bar of the disk image window to the destination in the Finder.

Typinator 6.0

Send Article to a Friend

Ergonis has released Typinator 6.0, a major update to its text expansion tool with over 50 new features and improvements. The biggest addition is the capability to create expansions based on regular expressions for replacements based on flexible patterns, which includes correction of “DOuble CAps” instances, inline calculations, automatic capitalization at the beginning of sentences, and predefined “Date Steps” for generating dates that can increment or decrement by day or week. The release also adds support for HTML-formatted expansions for email clients that support HTML mail, built-in functions for string processing in expansions (such as case conversions, extraction of fragments, etc.), new import file types for replacing the contents of existing sets, and improved relevance ranking for suggestions. Typinator 6.0 gets a redesigned user interface with a new window layout, plus it enables you to resize the expansion area, shortens the menu with a clearer structure, and displays sets and rules side by side to make it easier to move rules.

Typinator 6.0 requires Mac OS X 10.5.8 Leopard or later, but you need to be running 10.7 Lion or later in order to use regular expressions. It’s also fully compatible with 10.9 Mavericks. If you purchased a license for Typinator 5 on or after 1 October 2013, you can upgrade to version 6.0 for free. For purchases made before that date, you can upgrade to Typinator 6.0 for €12.99 (single license). (€24.99 new with a 25 percent discount for TidBITS members, 7.2 MB, release notes)
