I like this app (though it’s overpriced by half). However, GoodbyeHello would be so much better if we didn’t have to mouse up to its File menu to select either ‘Make Path Visible’, ‘Make File Visible’ or ‘Make Folder Visible’. Instead, those commands could be selected more quickly and easily if each had its own button in the floating window.

Nice app. It should affect aliases though, and not their linked (parent?) file. In other words, I cannot make an alias invisible.

Really I am not going to download software when Terminal is readily there on EVERY MAC for some DEMO program.


You can rename any file to make it "invisible" to Finder by simple appending a period prefix to the file.
For example:
mv /Users/Carl/Desktop/Document.txt /Users/Carl/Desktop/.Document.text

The mv command in Terminal will move or rename, in this case rename.
It also works with alias files.

And if you want it back, just remove that period!
mv /Users/Carl/Desktop/.Document.txt /Users/Carl/Desktop/Document.text

Simple.

1* Software here.
