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.

Aladdin Revs Up -- Aladdin Systems has acquired publishing rights to 6prime's Rev, the $99.95 easy-to-use revision control software I reviewed back in TidBITS-362. Rev saves intermediate versions of frequently saved documents, making it possible to return to one of those intermediate versions in case of otherwise irrevocable mistakes. Even though Nisus Writer provides unlimited undos that work through saves, I still use Rev with documents I work on frequently, and on several occasions Rev has saved me from recreating work. I'm pleased to see Aladdin picking up Rev so it can benefit from the additional support. [ACE]
