[8:00 AM] AliasMenu Adds Support For Default Folders & Mac OS 9
by Staff

Benoit Widemann has updated AliasMenu to version 2.2. The new version of AliasMenu adds support for the popular utility, Default Folder. According to Mr. Widemann:

AliasMenu is a control panel allowing users to add customized menus to the menu bar. After the great success of version 2.0 (chosen by thousands of users, selected as "Top Pick" by C|Net's, recommended by many web sites and Macintosh magazines all over the world, localized to French, German and Japanese), this new version adds a great feature to AliasMenu: Default Folder support. If Default Folder is installed, any item selected in an AliasMenu menu while an Open or Save dialog is active appears in the dialog's list.

"The effect is very natural for users," says Benoît Widemann, author of AliasMenu, "They can pick items in their own custom menus anytime. Navigating between folders has never been so fast and easy. Even keyboard shortcuts are supported on file dialogs!"

Beside Default Folder support, AliasMenu 2.2 brings several nice touches:

AliasMenu now fully supports Multiple Users mode in Mac OS 9. Each user has separate menus and preferences. Limited user can use menus presets by the administrator without any open access to the control panels.

When a menu's folder is set to a label, the menu title is drawn using the label's color. Each menu can have a different color title.

AliasMenu is fully compatible with Mac OS 9. Minimum required system version is 7.0.

AliasMenu is available as shareware for US$25. You can find more information at the AliasMenu web site.
