|[9:00 AM] Three Great Tastes That Taste Great Together
Speaking of Default Folder, three popular shareware utilities have been conveniently bundled for easier access and usability. The Reaction Bundle bring Default Folder, AliasMenu, and BeHierarchic together in a fully optimized package. According to the software authors:
THE REACTION BUNDLE
Default Folder, AliasMenu and BeHierarchic have been optimized to work better together, delivering a rich set of features without going overboard and bloating the system with unnecessary extra functions. They are all fully compatible with Mac OS 9. They are easy to get started with, won't take up excessive amounts of memory and processor time, and won't cause conflicts and crashes on users' Macs.
All three of these utilities are also time-tested and immensely popular in their own rights. They have all been chosen as "Best of Class" picks by Version Tracker.
By installing AliasMenu, BeHierarchic, and Default Folder together, users get the following added benefits:
- BeHierarchic makes AliasMenu's menus hierarchical, just like the Apple menu.
- When a text clipping is selected in a submenu, BeHierarchic "passes" it to AliasMenu, which in turn types the text in the front application.
- Folders and files selected with Default Folder are automatically transmitted to the "Recent" menus of BeHierarchic.
- When an "Open" or "Save" dialog is front, selecting an item in AliasMenu (or in a BeHierarchic submenu) shows the item in the dialog's list.
- AliasMenu's user-defined keyboard shortcuts also work on the Default Folder-enhanced file dialogs, allowing instant navigation to frequently used folders.
- The three programs are fully compatible with Multiple User mode in Mac OS 9, which makes them suitable for classrooms, families, and offices with shared Macs.
The Reaction Bundle is available for US$39.95, or approximately savings of 66% over each product purchased individually. You can find more information at the Reaction Bundle web site.
