    Version: Butler 4.0b16

    You can have Butler show a selected item in Finder by pressing option-return (or option-enter) or by clicking the little gear wheel on the bottom left corner of the abbreviation screen.

    Awesome app, by the way.
    File launcher, hot key app, bookmark finder, pasteboards, +more?

    Gravy, baby!

    "Great piece of software"

    July 16, 2004  |   By arturo66

    Version: Butler 4.0b16

    Summary

    This review was originally posted on VersionTracker.com.
    I switched from "Quicksilver" to "Butler" and I can't say which I like more. One thing I miss in Butler is the possibility to reveal an object (just showing it in the Finder, not opening it).
    And: Anybody knows a way to insert the current date at the text cursor position with Butler?

    "problems with external FW drive"

    July 12, 2004  |   By hay1518

    Version: Butler 4.0b15

    Summary

    This review was originally posted on VersionTracker.com.
    This app looks incredibly useful but it has one problem I have knoticed. I came upon it looking for a menu bar extra that would eject my external FW drive, but when this is attempted in Butler the app hangs and needs a force quit via activity monitor. This is on a TiBook running 10.3.4, and the problem would appear to be a running theme as I have noticed similar feedback on other "ejector" apps.

    ...Really ! I've just send 30 bucks to the developer for his great work.
    Exactly the type of software I couldn't live without. Never had the slightest problem with it.

    Not really the type to get involved in posting about anything. But had to write about this. Simply an awesome piece of software. Really amazing. Would like to thank the author for releasing a brilliant piece of software to the community for free.

    "author deserves an award"

    June 21, 2004  |   By tu11ym0n

    Version: Butler 4.0b14

    Summary

    This review was originally posted on VersionTracker.com.
    Butler is phenomenal. it has become indispensible. the pasteboard feature alone is a huge timesaver, especially if you assign a fourth mouse button to bring it up. ooh la LA! i don't know what i'd do without Butler. Mr. Maurer really deserves some kind of Mac award.

    "Excellent!"

    Version: Butler 4.0b14

    Summary

    This review was originally posted on VersionTracker.com.
    This program is simply amazing. You may like particular functionalities of competing products better, but the truth is that there is no software that combines as many, well implemented features as Butler in a single, donation-ware application. This is by far the most impressive mac shareware/freeware app I've seen in quite a while!

    "Simply Wonderful"

    Version: Butler 4.0b13

    Summary

    This review was originally posted on VersionTracker.com.
    The Mac community needs developers like this. The developer of this application must be wealthy because he doesnâ??t require you to pay for this feature rich utility. If you use Butler do the right thing and send him a few dollars. Now, I best go and send the developer some money or I will be a hyp·o·crite.

    "Replaces PTH Pasteboard"

    June 17, 2004  |   By VersionTrackerUserOpinion

    Version: Butler 4.0b13

    Summary

    This review was originally posted on VersionTracker.com.
    I prefer LaunchBar for a launcher, and I have all my macros set in iKey. But Butler is a perfect replacement for PTH Pasteboard. I was one of the unfortunate ones to pay for YouControl in the beginning ($40 then/$70 now) thinking it would at least replace the PTH apps. It doesn't. Save your money and download Butler. If you use it and really like it, send the author a few bucks via PayPal.
