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.

Roizen Leaves Apple -- Heidi Roizen, Apple's vice president of Developer Relations, has announced she'll be leaving Apple on 19-Feb-97 to commit more time to her family. During the last year, Heidi implemented wide-ranging changes in Apple's developer support and vastly improved communications between Apple and software developers. Her contributions will be missed in the developer community, and we hope Apple is able to make good on her example. [GD]
