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.

FileMaker 7.0v3 Update Offers Numerous Fixes -- On 05-Oct-04, FileMaker, Inc., posted free updaters that bring previous versions of FileMaker 7 (both Pro and Developer; see "FileMaker Pro 7: Can You Say Paradigm Shift?" in TidBITS-721) up to 7.0v3. The list of problems addressed by this update is quite long and includes improvements in text editing, layout editing, scripting, calculations, portals, value lists, import/export, find, spell checking, security, display of related data, and Japanese language functionality. The Developer update includes all the fixes just mentioned, plus fixes to Developer-only features such as the script debugger, Database Design Report, and Developer Utilities. For Mac OS X users, the same 26 MB download is used to update FileMaker Pro and FileMaker Developer. Windows users must download separate files for each application, and the download for the Pro updater for Windows is a whopping 107 MB. The 7.0v3 update is strongly recommended for all users of FileMaker Pro and FileMaker Developer. [WP]
