"Does its thing well; easy to understand."

October 08, 2009  |  By zippycnet

 |  Version: Pref Setter 2.0

Pros

Simple, fast, easy to figure out how to use it.

Cons

Periodically nags unless you donate (not really annoying, though, and for me it was clearly worth donating).

What's new in version 2.0

� New Features:

  • Pref Setter now uses the authorization frameworks to enable editing of system level plist files.
  • New tool bar item and menu items in the contextual menus for the ââ?¬Å?Open Domain Quicklyââ?¬? window and Find panel which will allow you to launch or quit the application a property list belongs to.
  • Data items are now editable, in a separate hex editor window.
  • If a value is too long to be shown entirely while editing, a separate window will now open to allow easier editing.
  • You can now use regular expressions when searching.
  • Added the Sparkle framework, for automatic updates.

� Changed Features:

  • Changed display of dates to show a formatted date string rather than the raw date.
  • If you copy/drag an item from a non-writable file, the ââ?¬Å?defaults writeââ?¬Â¦Ã¢â?¬? string generated will now have sudo written before it.
  • Can now display dictionaries and arrays in a preference document in bold.
  • ââ?¬Å?Open Domain Quicklyââ?¬? window now shows icons.
  • Font for the items in the ââ?¬Å?Open Domain Quicklyââ?¬? window is now separately set from the document font.
  • You can now change a class to a Data type (though you canââ?¬â?¢t change a Data type to another class).
  • Updated Preference pane.
  • Updated Find panel.
  • Updated Get Info window.
  • Updated Help documentation.
  • Pref Setter now requires Mac OS X 10.3.9 or later.

� Bug Fixes:

  • Leopard compatibility fixes.
  • Fixed a bug where pasting or dragging a ââ?¬Å?defaults writeââ?¬Â¦Ã¢â?¬? string with a boolean type would always default to true.
  • Fixed a bug where pasting or dragging a ââ?¬Å?defaults writeââ?¬Â¦Ã¢â?¬? string of either the -array-add or -dict-add type would replace the entire array or dictionary with the new value rather than adding the new value.
  • Fixed a bug that could lead to a crash when changing the class to a Boolean, Integer, Float, or Date class.
  • ââ?¬Å?Open Domain Quicklyââ?¬? window no longer allows you to delete the preferences of a running application, which could lead to that application crashing.
