The Main Dialog

The main dialog of A Better Finder Attributes is divided into a number of distinct areas.

The Action: popup menu allows you specify which action will be applied. As soon as you select an action its parameters will be displayed below it in the dialog.

At the bottom of the dialog you will find a number of buttons:

  • The Perform Changes button applies the currently selected action and parameters to the selected files. Press the return key or click on the button to process the selected files.

The File List

To the right of the main dialog, you see the “file list”.

It displays an invitation to “Drag Your Files and Folders Here” and once you do so, it is replaced by a table showing the names of the selected files, and the file attributes that are relevant to the currently selected action.

You can switch the “Full Path” column on and off in the menus. The displayed columns will change according to which action is selected.

At the bottom left the Process: section offers three checkboxes, which allow you to process files and folders separately and to include or exclude files and folders in sub-folders.

  • files All the selected files will be processed. This setting does not affect the selected folders!

  • folders All the selected folders will be processed. This setting does not affect the selected files.

  • subfolders and their contents A Better Finder Attributes will process not only the selected files or folders, but will also process the files and folders inside of all of the selected folders. In other words it will process everything within the folder hierarchy of the selected folders.

Un-ticking the folder check box will mean that only the files inside of the folder hierarchy will be processed, etc…
