Developer's Description

View and edit a wide range of file and folder information. Create droplet applications that automatically apply changes to items dropped on them, including the contents of folders. Find files and folders using an extensive set of search criteria. Enhance file searches with plug-ins that extend file search capabilities. Conveniently perform a wide variety of actions on found items. Make File Buddy your default file finding application using the File Buddy CP control panel. Modify the names of multiple files at once. For example, remove ".txt" from the names of a group of files. Use contextual menus to accomplish many tasks in a single step. Contextual menus are supported on all versions of the Macintosh operating systems.

What's new in version 9.0.2

  • Find history strings were missing for no creation, modified, or accessed date. Fixed.
  • File Buddy's contextual menu was not adding any items when using the German localization. Fixed.
  • The Replace Regexp option in the Rename window had a bug that could cause a crash or incorrect results in some cases. Fixed.
  • The code that validates serial numbers had a bug in it that would prevent it from accepting serial numbers if the name contained non-ASCII characters. Fixed.
  • When drawing a badged icon (icons for aliases and locked items) in the List window, the icon would be corrupted or File Buddy would crash in Leopard. After much investigation, it seems to be a bug in Leopard. Workaround found.
  • When setting labels using the Label contextual menu in the List window, setting the label to the first label (the red label) had no effect. Fixed.
