Note that FinderPop will not work properly on OS X 10.11 El Capitan
when System Integrity Protection (aka "Rootless") is enabled.*
It may be that having both FinderPop and SIP enabled will never be satisfactorily resolved because FinderPop relies on OS features which,
when SIP is enabled, have deliberately been removed by Apple with the aim of increasing system stability.
* And even with SIP disabled FinderPop v 2.5.7 won't work 100% as the El Capitan Finder does some stuff differently and I'm still trying to figure out what it's doing.
Ensure you use Apple's unzipper to unzip the FinderPop zip file as some third-party unzippers do not respect permissions.
Ensure that the System Preferences panel is CLOSED. Quit. Not running. Double-click the FinderPop.prefpane icon. System Preferences will
open and ask if you want to install FinderPop for all users or just you. Choose "All Users" and continue.
On 10.6+, FinderPop "sees" what it was you clicked on in the Finder via the Services subsystem - ensure that you have Folder Actions Setup
enabled: System Preferences > Keyboard Shortcuts > Services > Files & Folders > (ensure Folder Actions Setup is checked.)
- 2.5.7 Allows FinderPop to work with alias files produced by the Yosemite 10.10 Finder.
- In FinderPop's Move/Copy/Alias dialog, you can control-click the Alias button and FinderPop will create symlinks instead of aliases.
- Fix minor bug in the Move To... and Copy To... scripts introduced last time (see the 'FinderPop Extras' folder.)
- Add new Alias To... and Symlink To... scripts to the 'FinderPop Extras' folder. These can be moved into your FinderPop Items folder if you wish.
These scripts will only be visible in FP menus if you have a Finder selection; they allow you to choose a destination folder into which to alias or symlink the selection. Added bonus: option-clicking the "Choose" button in the "Choose Folder" dialog will get the Finder to display the destination folder after the items have been aliased or symlinked.
- Fix a buffer overrun bug which could cause a crash in rare instances.
The previous version of FinderPop is available here (2.5.6).
If you're installing this over a previous version of FinderPop, you'll have to restart or logout/login for it to take effect.
As usual, if there are any issues with this, reply here in the forum!
