I tried PropEdit, BatChmod, ACL Fix, and Sandbox. PropEdit was the most polished and feature-rich. A great tool for the job. Of the other options, all are free. Sandbox was almost as feature rich, although not as simple to use, as PropEdit. If you don't mind spending $5 for a permission/flag/ACL editor, go with PropEdit. If you want something free to do the same thing, I'd suggest SandBox.

How do you edit permissions on a different volume than the boot volume?

should optimize the interface for the screen size of 11" macair, even without the dockbar the window is to limit of the screen height (the button to the editor acl would not even be displayed if not in fullscreen)
