Give the Gift of Giving -- It's a tradition. At the end of every calendar year, we collect gift suggestions from TidBITS readers and staff, assemble them into semi-consistent categories, and publish the results as a special TidBITS issue. And, every year, TidBITS readers reveal themselves to be a creative, resourceful, thoughtful, funny, and thoroughly generous bunch of people. No matter what holidays you may celebrate - if any at all - we hope you find these suggestions useful for bringing a measure of joy to the lives of others. And we'd like to extend a hearty thank-you to TidBITS readers for their support and readership during 2001 - without you, none of this is possible.
Set Per-Folder Views in the Finder
Tired of navigating to a particular folder and having to switch to List View every time? With Finder in Leopard, you can set viewing preference for each individual folder. Just navigate to it, and set the view the way you want (Column, List, Icon, or Cover Flow). Then choose View > Show View Options (Command-J) and in the window that appears, select the Always Open In... checkbox.
