I have never posted a comment before, however, some posts resound with a condescending tone that compels me to reply. I sincerely appreciate those who, from whatever motive, freely offer to others the fruit of their efforts. Unfortunately, far too many succumb to the temptation to tear down rather than build up, to criticize rather than encourage, to belittle rather than strengthen. Thank you Cedric Merle for the frequent updates that so obviously reflect your efforts to improve upon your work. I am not competent to write a program like PrintFinder, so please accept my gratitude.

Version 4.5.0b2 does not work with Snow Leopard 10.6.8. However version 3.1.0 does, Available here https://web.archive.org/web/*/http://cedricmacdp.free.fr/printfinder/* Where it says <File path for the list file> means directory which you want to be listed, not save location of list file. List file is saved to Desktop.

This really is a useful program. I just tested it in Lion and it works fine for me. I did find that foreign characters in file names get messed up... It is a shame, but seems like it is no longer being developed...

Convenient program to save a few keystrokes otherwise spent using "ls" in terminal while indexing removable discs... very pleasant to use. The only improvements I can see would be pre-populating the output list/file name box with the same name as the directory that is listed. Also, allowing it to remember that you want subfolders listed, instead of having to re-check the box for each directory. Those two things and it would be perfect instead of great!

Very nice app... one small suggestion. The sub folders option seems to mean "drill down as far as necessary." But what I really need this app for is to do only two levels down (the folder itself and one level after that). And I'd like to see a tab character/indention before each subfolder. Think of one's iTunes folder... a list with each artist and each album under each artists, just that with all albums indented from the artist folder. Like so: Beatles Rubber Soul Revolver Santana Abraxas Supernatural In OS9 one could select all, hit the right arrow and get a display just like this... AND print it.

Ooops, I put spaces for the indenting except this board software eliminated them...

This is nice. Clean and concise interface, works properly in my testing. Missing one feature, though: Spotlight Comments. As far as I know, the only similar app that can handle this, is (the commercial) app, Print Window.

Tested it for the first time and it's great. Have been looking for this sort of appl. now too lazy to maintain the hierarchy of my home folder. Just in time for some spring cleaning, in winter... Oh, tried 'ls | lp' too... Not so easy for non-terminal guy like me. That cmd just print out the content of my home folder (with some other option as well I should think). Came across that info today too. Thanks.

This app is very well thought through. Just drag a folder to its main window and adjust the preferred settings for viewing and printing the contents of the specific folder (Including any subfolders). You can choose from several types of output, i.e. Ms Word, .pdf, .txt etc. Highly recommended!

You can do this easily with OS X's native applications. In Finder, select the files you want to "list." Hit Copy. Go to TextEdit, switch to plain text mode, and hit Paste. Voilà!

Looks like basic Unix ls command output, which doesn't seem particularly useful for printing without at least sizes and dates. If I wanted to print a flat view of a folder from the GUI I'd just drag it in a Camino window to get a listing that includes generic icons, sizes, dates in addition to file/folder names. That works in at least Firefox, too. Not Safari because its windows aren't drop targets for folders.

...which lists the files in some bizarre order, not related to the alphabet, Gregorian calendar, or file size. I don't want to learn terminal commands, so I loved PrintFinder. Excellent example of free specific-purpose mac app.

This should have been a great utility except for its refusal to save files that include non-Latin characters. So, if your folder happens to contain such characters you're out of luck. Looking forward to seeing this issue addressed. It's an otherwise excellent utility.

I appreciate any effort people make to learn something new and then provide a free service or tool to others. While I wish I could say this has been useful to me (it has on occasion); for my regular needs, Folderlister has done the job perfectly!

It uses a strange way to order files. It ignores localized filenames of Apps and puts iWeb after Webstractor!

This works really nice. It would be nice if the author extended it to list addiional details, like size, file type, etc. It could then be called PrintFinder Pro or something and the author could ask for spare change or donations.

Oooh! Great stuff! I like this a lot. I've been missing folder lists ever since I started using OS X, but this fills that need. The output is a clean, orderly text file that lists as much or as little as you like. Just enter the path of the folder you want printed (I use the contextual menu Copy Path), set the output file name, set any filters, and hit return. The file quickly shows up on your Desktop. SLICK! I entered "/" (the very top of the hard drive) into PrintFinder and selected to include sub-folders and it eventually created an entire listing of my whole boot drive! 21MB, no less! It took a minute or two, but eventually a massive file opened up and listed everything from the Finder. Absolutely amazing!
