PS about T&C and not drag-and-drop: I should add some extra incitements to encourage the Finder to update to the changed type & creator. Could you guys suggest useful ones. Even Bob Bradley's DropAttribute app does not manage to make Lemke's Graphics Converter icons yield to something classier. He must stick them on with "super glue". suggestions???? Cheers Larry S PS. Shullman suggests marking the containing directory as changed (with "setcatinfo" I guess) and I have yet to do that.
