10.4 Tiger Feature Request - Page 4

post #121 of 244
I want the Put Away command to come back. I recently worked on a project in Mac OS 9 and all the old habits came right back to me. I took all the files that I needed put them on the desktop so they would be at the root level of Open/Save dialogue boxes. When I finished the project, I simply hit command y and all the files went right back to where they were. This was a great feature and I can only assume that it's demise was due to the poor metadata implementation in the Finder.

i want i chat AV 3 to have webcore rendered chat windows(adium), file sharing(setting a directory that is always shared), voice chat with windows AIM 5.5, VoIP built in (you need a .mac account for this feature), ability to broadcast what your iSight is seeing through your Avatar, much more customizable buddy list ala Adium, different themes that go along with the new OS themes, and support for more than 2 way videoconferencing. At least 3 way would be really cool, but i'm hoping its scalable up to like 5, depending on the power of the machines and the bandwidth.

This would end the IM battle on all platforms. All would bow to ichat.


Too bad its not going to happen

Actually, I used to want this back too, until I realized that there was a reason I did exactly what you did - I wanted fast, easy, temporary access to a certain set of files, and I wanted to be able to *not* change their actual position on the disk.

There are at least two mechanisms for that staring you in the face: Dock, and Finder Sidebar.

Also, you can Cmd-opt drag those files to the Desktop, and get aliases which can be trashed at a whim. Or you can put them in the Finder toolbar.

Now, the one place I *do* miss Put Away is when I've trashed something and later want to undo it.

And no, it hasn't anything to do with poor metadata in the Finder, it's just not implemented is all. It's got squat all to do with metadata.

Expose NEEDS the animation, here is what it would be without:

Rather it's the kernel in XP handling graphics directly and other arcitectural differences (I lack the knowledge even to begin explaining this!) that one should blame.

sometimes i think i'd like apple to just let an OS settle into developer circles for a while. i mean, panther's rock solid... until you start installing other companies' stuff into it. is it possible for an OS to update TOO frequently? couldn't small developers who don't have the people-power to keep up with the changes, especially if they are significant, kinda whither away?

then again, i'm not a developer, so maybe this is what they want/like.

In theory at least, developers's projects should be able to either just inherit the changes made in these OS updates automatically in their code, or be able to update their apps with a trivial amount of work, and the system changes shouldn't affect the apps' stability and such. It probalby depends on what the project API is (namely Cocoa for the former scenario AFAIK) and how well the devloper structures their application. Adobe and other big developers seem to struggle the most with this because of both the sheer amount of code they deal with and probably just because of long-term wear and tear on the code base: so-called legacy code. On the other hand, apps like Create and OmniGraffle move up the OS ladder with very little fret. When you get one of these major OS updates, it's like getting a fairly major update for all your Cocoa apps as well. It's probably possible with Carbon too if done right, or else the idea is to get Carbon there eventually so CoreFoundation can act as the singular API rahter than dealing with this whole Carbon/Cocoa issue.

Much, much, MUCH better...

The Office 2004 projects does exactly one thing extremely well... lock you even *further* into MS products.

All that's needed for a project bundler is to have (wait for it...) metadata. Just a touch. A widdle tiny teensy bit. Just one field really... "Projects that I'm involved in" Then a 'project app' just becomes a way of managing that tag, and making sure that the appropriate application (what*EVER* that application that the *user* chose is) gets the appropriate document and is brought forward on command. That's all that much-ballyhooed project manager is, really. It's not that big a deal.

FWIW, I do something similar with folders for projects now, with aliases. I have my dissertation that's literally several thousand files, only a handful of which I'm working on at any given moment, so I have folders on a per-*task* basis, with aliases to the necessary files inside. Want to work on task Foo? Open folder Foo, Cmd-A, Cmd-O, done. It's a trivial tying, to be sure, but it provides much the same basic thing.

You're right... you should blame XP having graphics in the kernel for Blue Screens of Death. :P

MacOS X is simply *doing more*, and doing it *all the time*. When Longhorn ships (*snort*), with Avalon, the Quartz Extreme clone, *then* we'll see if there's anything to be said about relative performance. Right now, comparing the graphics architectures is like comparing the bookkeeper for a small mom and pop operation (XP) to an accountant for a large corporation (MacOS X). One is simply doing more.

And you missed my point, actually... it was that you were asking for more eye candy, *and* more speed. You can never have both, no matter how efficient the graphics architecture is... more work is simply more work.

Bingo.

Anyone notice their Cocoa applications all getting a nice boost in the text field arena with 10.3? New features and such? Without downloading a new version? That's the way it's supposed to work. Carbon *can* be programmed to do this, but it's a bit more of a pain, so many developers don't, the silly gits.

Cocoa and Carbon will eventually be merged under the covers, but until then we'll continue to see this sort of game of 'what API was used for this app'?

Although this method is great for files it does nothing to integrate emails, contacts, or calendar events into the process. Being able to open Project.app and not only have all the files associated, but emails, people involved in the project, and meetings you've held (tied back into notes and audio recordings) and are going to hold all within a simple interface.

It doesn't make much sense when it's only a person or two on a project, but I would love this sort of Project.app when I work on large undertakings.

Er... it does all of that now, re: X11, except for Aquafication, and given the crappy nature of X11 GUI elements in general, I doubt it'll ever happen.

The Linux compatibility is already 90% there... what do you see as 'missing'?

I agree, but it's not that hard to have a project app tell Mail 'open this folder for project X that I have active at the moment', or iCal 'select this calendar and hide all others for project X that I have active at the moment', ditto for AddressBook.

Heck, if you wanted to get all funky with it, it'd be trivial to have the iCal and AB info pop up in one unified UI, the APIs are there already... Mail is getting there, and if it were an entire (set of) folder(s) that were associated, that'd be pretty easy to pull into one UI as well.

Apple's been putting this sort of infrastructure in place for their own data, and increasingly making it obvious that they want to do so for *all* datatypes at the file level via metadata.

Regarding Exposé, I think some people (like me) will never use/like it. My right hand never leaves the mouse except for typing, the left hand has the thumb sitting constantly near the space bar and the cmd key, and it's perfect for me to leave the thumb there and use my middle finger to move quickly from Tab to H or vice versa. I constantly hide and switch between apps, basically moving just one finger, and I'm happy this way. I don't use it, but it doesn't get in my way either; fine for me!

Serious stuff: the Finder and everything else that's already been said about metadata. And FTP too!

GUI consistency, please, I beg you Steve, one GUI to bind them all...

OS X still has huge stability issues, Carbon apps are still able to lock everything up, but worse than this is the mess that surely lies with kernel/usb drivers. I have an iBook G4 and I carry it around all the time, plugging and unplugging loads of USB devices in different places and configurations. Well, after a while things can start to get ugly, leading to Kernel panics. I can reproduce this behavior whenever I want (not that I want it often, to be honest ), and using just kbd, mouse and harman/kardon sound sticks. This bug is here since 10.1, albeit over time it became less evident. But still, that's how I discovered the new panic in panther! Maybe these drivers that load and unload themselves don't clean up memory very well?

Strictly related to stability issues, I'd like a key combination to either kill every GUI process (rude) and revert back to a text only login console, or simply switch to one leaving the rest intact like on linux: most of the time (excluding the panics) it's just the GUI that's locked, probably only in the frontmost app. It'd be nice to be able to kill it without bringing down other apps in the background or risking damaging your drive's contents!

And for chrissake, I'd love to be able to have real smart playlists in iTunes, like say, this artist OR that other AND both 4 stars or better. Is it that difficult?

These are the things that really bug me, and the last two don't seem too difficult to implement...

I'd like to set up exclusions or exceptions to some criteria too, but I wouldn't consider this an OS thing per se. I bet it's trickier than it sounds too.

I want this too, if you put something in the trash by mistake, just click put away and it'll go back! Apple brought a lot of OS 9 things into OS X with 10.3, I expect that 10.4 will bring more.

I still think that OS 9 had some really nice features that have been scrapped, like the apple menu bar, i prefer that to the dock, the dock is a little bit task bar (windowz), I'm in two ways about this, i like the dock, but other times it annoys me.

Also i want a decent option to the 'traffic light' buttons, like clear ones! And if Apple could change the click-and-drag rectangles with rounded edges back to straight edges, i don;t like all the curvy edges, all the selections are curvy, exposé is curvy, iCal is curvy. Square edges are very cool and minimalist, much better, i feel. Although i can cope with the app windows being curvy!

I want oS X as it is (pretty much with a few oS 9 features brought forward) but a better finder and 'look' more minimalist and sleeker

I'm similar but I manage to use expose all the time by setting the keys to:

Command-Right-click ---> All Windows
Option-Right-click ---> Application Windows
Shift-Right-click ---> Desktop

Works great and I still don't need to move my hands out of position.

OTOH, OS X has Undo in the Finder. Seriously. Duplicate a file, then Undo. Drag it to the Trash, then Undo. Voila, like Put Away... the only thing is that you have to do it *immediately*... none of the checking several hours later and going "D'oh! I need to put that back... now where did it come from again?"

I'm saddened that most users don't know that if screen corners for Exposé are enabled, you can easily drag and drop files folders and data to various places via Exposé. (Well you can even with using the keys but I hardly see the need to use the keys that way).

So, if I have a bunch of Finder windows open and there is a file I have on the desktop that I want to put away, I can mouse to a corner to hide the windows, select and drag the file go to another corner and drag the file over whichever minimized Finder window I want to drop it into. It blinks and resizes to 100% and I can drop it where I want to. All in 1 or 2 fluid moves. (And countless other combinations of things to drag and places to drag to)

Same for dragging data between places. I can select some text, got to a corner, choose a minimized window, let it expand and the release the mouse and the data is pasted when I want it to go. (Escape let's you cancel the operation pre-drop)

I use Exposé to its fullest and am practically handicapped without it now. It enhances regular drag and drop a hundred fold by letting me manage my way through many windows.

When Expose came out, I thought it was really cool, but after some time, I haven't found it as useful. I think there is much room for improvement in Tiger.

The problem I have with Expose is that I still have to "hunt" for the window I need just like I would if I was using an Application or Window menu. To me, that is very inefficient. There needs to be some way that windows can stay in one spot, so that my muscle memory will remember where they are. If I have numerous windows open, and close 2, my Expose layout can change dramatically... not efficient at all when it comes to quickly changing windows because you have to "hunt" for the the one you're looking for all over again.

This is the one thing I like about the Windows Taskbar, is that windows always stay in one spot on the bar (complete with icon and name), so that you really only need to hunt for the window once, from then on, when you switch to that window, you just click the box for it because it's static location is stored in your memory, and you don't even need to look at the box's icon or window name.

I'm not trying to make this into an Expose thread, I just open Apple improves the functionality of Expose so that it becomes more efficient. Until then, I'll just cmd-tab to the app I want and cmd-` until I get the window I want.

yes indeed, that would satisfy me too. at least as an option i think apple should enable passwordfree fast user switching. That would create some visual impact anyway. The only reasons they don't enable it are probably security issues. wild shot

Anyway, just because I'm paranoid doesn't mean I'm not being

Aaaaah! I demand an immediate ban on the phrase "at least make it an option" in this thread!

I think "Put Away" is a nice tool. I'd like to see it come up contextually both in a context menu and in the File menu when you have the Trash folder in the forwground.

Yes it is such a curse with that thread, but at least make "put away" an option, not to mention "spring loaded folders in the dock". [does anybody hear me?]

*proper* services integration -- i keep posting that they should be part of the contextual menu when you click on a file (and posted to apple). they seem wasted to me as they are now.

spring loaded dock folders is the obvious dock progression IMHO

This animation has been in Mac OS since the beginning! The only difference is that where the old system used a zooming rectangle, now you actually see the contents. The current zoom takes no more time than the "zoomrects" and it provides excellent spacial feedback as to what you're navigating.
