Tiger, Part 2

As a brief followup to my initial impressions on Tiger:

  • They’ve added a dimensions field to the preview pane, which is something I wanted under 10.3. Unfortunately it doesn’t show the resolution of the image.
  • I’ve messed around with how I invoke Dashboard — now I use the bottom-left corner as the “Active Corner”, combined with the shift key. It works much more nicely and “flows” more easily than a keyboard shortcut.
  • I’ve used Spotlight a little bit more, and it’s certainly faster and more configurable than the old Find method in the Finder. Why, for the love of all that is holy, is the 10.3 Find window not resizable? If you have more than a half-dozen entries in the “Search in Specific Places” menu, you get a scroll bar, with no way to make the window bigger. Ridiculous!
