Ah. Thank you for the information. I guess I'll go back to Finder then, maybe install TotalFinder again.

Hi turly. FP has been working fine with 10.7 until recently (setup is a 2011 Mac mini with 10.7).
It no longer allows "copy/move to " anymore. I've tried reinstalls of FP and permissions fixes, still no + to add, move or copy to a folder in finderpop items folder.

My other macs (a new Macbook pro, older Imac and 2009 mac mini all running 10.7) have no trouble with the newer FP.

It looks like FP is not able to determine what it is you've clicked on (and won't enable the "Copy" cursor unless it knows this.)

FP uses the Services subsystem to determine what you control-clicked. Have you done anything recently with Services?
I'm not at my Mac right now (indeed, am away from it til September!) but AFAIK the Services are set up in the Keyboard prefPane.
Make sure that the "Folder Actions setup" is enabled, otherwise FP won't work properly.

It is an advice you have given many times before. I do not have Folder Actions Setup enabled and still FP works fine. But I have several other services enabled that work on folders. Maybe any enabled service that works on folders will serve the same purpose for FP?

(The setting is indeed in System Preferences > Keyboard > Keyboard Shortcuts > Services > Files and Folders)

That's exactly right Ronald - Folder Actions Setup is the one a lot of people seem to untick ("Hmm, I wonder what this does...probably nothing...")
So long as there are some Services active which work on files/folders, FP will see what you clicked.
I should probably write my own "FinderPop" service to force the issue... must look into that.

Thanks for the quick reply Turly,
I haven't had time to tinker with the OS settings too much, I didn't remember unchecking anything, but to tell Spotlight not to search all the HD. I did install a keyboard app. hoping to bring my old keyboard back to life--it didn't help. So it was uninstalled.
I checked the folder actions box and its checked. I reinstalled the OS and still nothing. I decided to go to /Library/Scripts/Folder Actions/Enable Folder Actions(double click) and now FP works. My guess is the keyboard app I installed, messed with the scripts some how and folder actions didn't restore.
Thanks for the info, time for another pint my friend.

Hey Stan,

Funnily enough now you mention it, I've seen that once before - it looked like Folder Actions Setup is enabled, but in reality it wasn't ... a click to disable it followed by another click to enable it, and everything was happy again. I seem to recall it was around the time of a very brief flirtation with Logitech's LCC software.

I suppose many do what I do. I like to keep the services menu short, with only the few items I actually use. I disable all other services.

Hi turly,

Any forcast when the final FP supporting OS Lion will appear on the horizon? Can't live without it.
Since OS Lion itself (still) comes up with some weak spots, my fav tools like FP should be a reliable friend.

Best

I'm back in BCN and my Mac now so hopefully I'll have next weekend to work on it.

I think it'll just be a rebranding exercise though - ie what was 2.3.9.3 will become 2.4 unless there are any bugs found.
AFAIK 2.3.9.3 is stable... anyone know otherwise? If so, shout!
