Can anyone who has used/tried the DP tell me if Apple have fixed the Finder List View bug where windows have the name column 300+ pixels wide by default? Is this still the case, or is it lower? Hopefully the new features in the Finder will have addressed this GUI issue. Seems the Finder is slowly being deprecated in recent OS versions.

Hi Caesar113, I don't know how to post a picture here other than perhaps pasting a screen grab into a reply window.

The issue is well known bug in Mavericks GUI - see

https://discussions.apple.com/message/25274633
http://hints.macworld.com/article.php?story=20131230083942896
http://apple.stackexchange.com/questions/111350/on-mavericks-in-the-finder-in-list-view-column-widths-keep-changing

for some general discussions.

Essentially, when you create a new folder and open the folder to view it in List view, the column for file names can be between 300 and 500 pixels wide - often wider than the folder view itself. It is a known bug in Mavericks, Apple has acknowledged it according to some posters.

There is a screen grab here:
https://discussions.apple.com/thread/5499589

and some further discussion/example here:
http://macperformanceguide.com/blog/2014/20140213_1-Mavericks-bugs.html

in the old days, a simple tweak of Finder plist settings was enough to generate uniform views, but this option no longer appears to work - seems the finder plist settings are ignored or new settings somewhere over-ride the settings in the com.apple.finder.plist file

it is easy to test/verify - create a new folder on your desktop and open in list view.

thanks for your offer

Link to dev web page (top right hand side, results in error message: "Google+ Warning: Cannot modify header information - headers already sent by (output started at /kunden/431401_58638/webseiten/mertenscreative/index.php:2) in /kunden/431401_58638/webseiten/mertenscreative/index.php on line 9" Am curious to see if this re-connects network drives after wakeup from sleep.

No longer free - dev's web page states clearly it is now $20 for all the computers you own. Seriously? $20? I would have considered paying $2 for this useful utility, but $20 is way too much. It's a good app but plenty of good alternatives out there - check out wifi explorer (my reccommendation); other apps besides these. Radar

Gave up on MUD6 and back to 5. I **really** do want to control when and what gets installed on my computer, and I have lost this capacity with MUD6. 5 stars for MUD 5, 0 stars for MUD 6.

Using 6b and don't like the feature of automatically d/l the updated software and installing it. I would like to retain control over when I install an update - for times when it requires a new licence # or $ to jump to new version. With auto install, the new software is installed and I need to revert to prev version at times. Please add option of immediate install or just d/l only.

seriously, can the GUI get any worse? it's MS converting the old Skype UI to a Windoze-esque/Internet Exploder-esque nightmare of overlapping windows and tabs to select a conversation thread. I was still using Skype 2.8 until very recently when I found I could no longer join conf calls and an increasing number of friends were inaccessible as they had "upgraded" to current versions. MS efforts re Skype is the best possible news for Facetime and Viber. Thanks for ruining a great product MS and sending more people Apple's way!!!!!

Agree re cdock from sourceforge - simple, free app that did exactly what I was looking for - a transparent dock. Why pay $8 when if all you want is a transparent dock (or a couple of other basic options)? Was put off by 'videos' on dockmod webpage - sort of videos you might expect from second-hand car dealer...

I can not get this to work. I have multiple calendar item duplicates/triplicates and this app goes through my calendars and apparently culls them, but when it is done, nothing has changed - I presume icloud syncing is either preventing the cull or is replacing slimmed calendars with old calendars with dupes. Manual deletion isn't an option - one of my calendars has 2500+ entries, so that's why I tried this app. there has to be some way to get around icloud forced sync and undoing this app's good work.
