Well, you sort of raised my anticipation when you shared the videos and said 1–2 days! I initially revisited the page several times a day but eventually stopped after ten days or soOK it took a little longer than expected but I have a working beta including a CDEV with all the knobs, seems nice and stable under 7.1 and 7.5.5 in Mini vMac though there are a couple minor bugs to still work out and I have actually NOT tried this on a real Mac yet!
That seems very classic-macosy – I'd say it's a featureA fun thing to try is pressing the keystroke while a dialog box is up; all the background windows whoosh away to their hiding places but the dialog box stays put. Not sure if this is a feature or a bug
Great! That certainly makes it much more modern and easy to use.I hate cdevs that make you restart for changes to take effect ... so mine doesn't make you do that
I actually had the same thought already from the beginning, and again when I saw your videos, considering there is not just one zoom rect animation and that they might overlap, but I thought it was worth to see how it looked first.
I was about to ask if I should dare to try it out on OS 9, but I take it that's not advisable thenI don't use MacOS 8 at all so consider this a System 7-specific project for now. Eventually I will get it working under System 6. I don't think I will invest time in MacOS 8 support if it doesn't already mostly work, but would welcome others to take that on later. (This version will crash without the Gestalt Manager ... hey it's a beta!)
This actually happens by just hiding and revealing the Finder under normal use, so I certainly didn't expect you to work around that.(One known bug: hiding a WindowShaded window un-shades it. This is due to a particular weird thing WindowShade does which will be hard to work around. Trust me, it's really WindowShade's fault! For now, call it a "known incompatibility.")
Great! If I could, I would have written this myself long ago, so being able to see how you accomplished it will be terrific learning material.Source code will eventually be released but there is tons of cleanup to do first ...
Yes, but as long as it's disabled by default!
