Under the Tiger operating system I was able to make a folder with all of my aliases and copy it into the dock. Afterward I could click and hold on that folder in the dock thus letting me chose which program I wanted to launch. With the new Leopard system I seem unable to do this. Is there a better way to do this with the new system that I haven't discovered yet? Old habits die hard!

I have has no problems doing what you have said. It is actually improved in leopard because of stacks.

There are no "technical solutions" to your "artistic problems".
Don't let technology get in the way of your creativity!

Hi,

1. Drag the folder with the aliases to the dock.

2. Right click the folder and select:
display as folder
view content as list

3. Left click instead of right clicking on the folder to get the list.



Best Wishes,



Mitch

Thanks everyone I don't know if it because I have an old G5 or the single button mouse but I have to hold down the option key when I click on the folder now in order for it to work. Maybe all will get better when I get my new Mac, I'm just waiting for that government stimulus check!

Hi Bruce,

IMO you should do yourself a favor and replace the single button mouse ASAP.

Best Wishes,

What version of OS X are you using? There have been some updates to Leopard since it was first released that restored some of the Dock behaviors that were previously available in Tiger. Make sure to connect to the Internet and run Software Update to ensure that you have the latest version of Leopard.

Hi Alan,

macfixit.com recommends the following method for OS upgrades:
1. Backup the partition.

2. Run Disk Utility or Diskwarrior to be sure the partition is in good condition.

3. Repair permissions.

4. Download and install the combo update (preferably from a different partition). Its not unusual for problems caused by OS updates to be fixed by running the combo update.

5. Repair permissions again.

Best Wishes,



Mitch
