Since I've upgraded from 10.5 to 10.6.6 I've found that aliases don't work with Finderpop 2.3.0 - does one of the newer betas fix this or is it an unknown issue?

I use the Finder Control-free Popup Delay, BTW with "Contents if on folder" checkmarked. Works fine with other folders, but alias open up like as if I right-clicked on them, no Finderpop listing of the folder contents.

I tried reinstalling Finderpop 2.3.0 and no love.

Obvious question would be: Are the aliases still valid after your OS upgrade?

I'm not at my Mac tonight* but upgrading to 2.3.0.3 would be worth your while, I definitely fixed something to do with right-clicking on aliases (the bug manifested itself so that FP accidentally offered you the ability to move the alias you clicked on into whatever the alias pointed to, but I think this might be the same bug that you're seeing.)

Let me know if this doesn't fix your problem!

* I'd love to be "at my Mac" but I'm up the walls with "real" work - something came up today and I'll be busy for the rest of the week. At least!

Yes, the aliases are still valid and open the originating folders. 2.3.0.3 installed and restarted and still the same problem. Aliases don't work anymore. At least with 10.6.6 anyway.

For now, my clumsy, 2 step workaround is checkmarking 'Add "Contents" submenu if control-clicking a folder' and then I can click-n-hold on the Alias and then I can mouse-over "Contents" and then see the contents of the Alias. But, I'd much rather that be the old one-step process like it was before where Aliases open right up. This workaround doesn't conflict with folders that still work as desired and open right up.

What about command-control-clicking the alias? Does that pop up the Contents menu like it should?

Yeah, weird, that does work with aliases. So it seems to be only related to click-n-hold.

I can confirm this control-free popup behavior in FP 2.3.0.3 beta in Snow Leopard:

Using control-free popup with the "Contents if on folder" option, the contents menu is shown on folders, but on folder aliases the 'normal' FinderPop enhanced contextual menu is shown.


However, command-control clicking a folder alias does not show the expected contents menu here:

Command-control clicking a folder shows the contents menu of that folder, but command-control clicking a folder alias shows the contents menu of the folder the alias is in instead.

I thought I'd fixed this last night, but I introduced another more subtle bug so I'll have another go tonight. Sorry about that!

Was this issue resolved or did you need more information about it or is it something that can't be fixed? (the issue with slowing down of the Applications Folder I guess with a conflict with smart scroll?)
