I guess you have to use the Edit button *before* dragging files/folders to the app icon. It's not the expected behavior, I guess. If you don't this, the app will crash. That why it crashes when it's not running and you drag files to the app icon in the Finder. Three suggestions:

- makes it asks for the type/creator AFTER something is dragged to the application;
- allow draggin to the application window;
- make the fields in the information button not editable.

The crash bug has been fixed, and you can now drop files and folders on the application window as well as on the application (which does not need to be running first).

Thanks again for the info.

I don't think the app is crashing. It quits by default. You can change that using preferences.

Fluggel is a drop application utility for setting the type and creator of a folder of files of a particluar type and creator (and all of its subfolders) to the specified type and creator.

You can also use Fluggel to determine the type and creator of a file.

How to use: Drag one or more folders on top of the Fluggel application icon in the Finder. Fluggel immediately begins to traverse the folders and all their subfolders changing the type and creator of all files it finds with a given type and creator to the specified type and creator. (See screenshot below)

Note that an empty field corresponds to "no value" (zero). So this application can be used to:
  • Add a type and creator to a set of files that has no type and creator.
  • Erase the type and creator of a set of files.
