I'd love to write a comment, but not without testing as there is no download anywhere. Not on MacUpdate, not on the dev's web site, not on the App Store. Every thing is pointing to the latter, but App Store is just colorful glitter and marketing blurbs, but no software, no "download" button, or menu, or link.

The ability to switch to the user login screen is very welcome. Used to implement this behavior with Winswitch but that has been abandoned long time ago. And no luck when trying to set this up from the Shortcuts definitions in Apple's "Keyboards" pref pane

Thank you!!

"You can also use Command + E keys to maximize the current active window in most applications."

TNX for listening!! ;-) ;-)

However, Cmd-e may conflict with Finder's "Eject" command, as it apparently does with Safari's "Use selection for Find". No showstopper for me, though. TNX again!!

Excellent idea; congrats!

Does what it says.

As a next, could the same 'full zoom' behaviour get connected to the Zoom command in the Windows menu? This way, it could be evoked by a keyboard shortcut.

Again, thank you for leveraging this annoyance!

Is it possible to shorten the interval of the TM notification 'TM has not been backup up within the last ten days'.
I mean I'm not so much interested in changing the message wording but rather that it should appear more often.
(Yeah right... I do not always have my TM drive connected. Its fan is too noisy...)

It's already all said, but just so that FM marketing gets an idea how many are rejecting their
approach, I'll add my comment that I won't move on to version 2 at full price. I'll simply await if version 3 will be worth the price they will ask for it, or not (again ;-).

Same here, under 10.5.4. Still not available on their website.
Kind of funny... Looking from the file dates, I'd say this version has been put together in early April. And they still don't have it on their site. I wonder if the release to Macupdate had not been intended.
Probably they alredy do have a working version of WindowShade... maybe since long, just as long as the working FontCard...

Well, thank you for bothering to share your experiences. So I gave it another whirl, and indeed this time it works for me (under 10.5.4; last time I tried I was running 10.5.2).

I still have some issues with the Minimize-in-place feature but I think I should better post these findings on the WindowsShade product page.

I am saying this just because mentioning any issues is simply meant to compare experiences with other users, not to denounce the company and their products. Same time I must say I have restrained from bringing up those issues with Unsanity. I felt insecure whether they would find any feedback helpful at all at this point where they feel they are are wrestling with Leopard.

Simply my favourite tool when I need to find out where all the space has gone...

Scans my MB drive filled with 50GB in a bit more than 3 minutes.

Beware, this guy will keep ypu busy right from the start, for example if you haven't yet moved on to Leopard: version 1.2 is not just "Leopard compatible", it's Leopard-ONLY. Checked for an earlier version on the developers site, but seems all gone.
Well, I guess we have to take it as a sign of the times, if a TIGERgotchi will run with Leo exclusively.

As I've found out the hard way, Retrospect had never backup up a couple of files on which -- for whatever reasons -- the Other privilege was set to No Access. I changed this permission flag to Read, and voila, on the next backup they got saved as well. I double-checked it's running as root, so it *should* backup items regardless of permission.
