For some reason, my audio output defaults to USB Codec after installing Mavericks. This utility saves me the clicks and open of the Sound Prefs to get the main speakers back after using, for instance, a set of bluetooth headphones. I'd like to have seen this sort of function built-in to the volume menu bar icon, but, hey, Apple tends to ignore good advice.

This version not only works with 10.9, it is also the first utility I am aware of (and this includes the very recent update of MacPilot) that allows login window background changes. Now, if only someone could hack the Dock and bring back total transparency....

Still ain't fixed the fuzzy icon problem, or the inability for Quicktime Player to make recordings or stay on top of open apps.

" Free ($12.95)"

Is this some new definition of 'free' I was unaware of?

BookDog sorta worked, although the interface was unfathomable. BookMacSter does nothing but crash on my system.

I actually already have a license- had it since it was Bookdog. The new version seems to work.

I've used the same Automator service which took me about thirty seconds to create to rename files for years now.

The new version will not install in 10.9 and Safari 7. It can't find Safari- claiming it's somewhere on a virtual machine.

The 'Lion' update fails to remember the source folder for images everytime I log in. And it doesn't always successfully add the images once I try. Back to 3.0.6, which works just fine, although I still miss the ability (which it once had) to change the image shown while in the Paused mode. That disappeared a while back. At any rate, at least for me, the 'Lion' update ain't viable.

This new version will load (it's a preference pane), but it locks up and System Prefs will need a force quit. Do not use this version!

What am I missing? This did not do anything to my dock whatsoever except relaunch it. Still looks the same, nothing is transparent, nothing is invisible. ?

Let's hope it doesn't happen to others, but all the app folders I had set up were gone after the update, and the apps distributed across several screens. Took a long time to redo all the folders I had. Also the voicemail thing happened to me. Not the cleanest update, for sure

Wade-Smith had trouble on 15 Jan 2010
Been using this utility since it was knee-high to a grasshopper, and it hasn't changed much. It is a chore to set up and not at all intuitive, but once happy, it looks great and is very useful. Would it be better if it talked to iCal? Sure. Would it be better if it saved setups? Sure. Could it use a bit more simplicity? Sure. But it actually does something no other app does, as far as I've found.

One note- somewhere in the move to Snow Leopard, the ability for DesktopCalendar to keep the dropshadow working was lost. Reboot, or log out and back in, and the shadow disappears. A quick Preference open, and it re-appears. A bit of a pain, and possibly a rather easy fix.
