Cool Tools 1.0.1
A set of six free utilities for OS 7.5 to 9x:
-Liberate Desktops: rebuilds desktop files automatically at next startup.
-Quote UnQuote: adds or deletes quote symbols and hard returns to text.
-Selector: selects files and folders by boolean combination of many filter
criteria, and performs a number of actions, e.g. change file creator and
type and set Finder attributes, on items found.
-Show Document: selects, in the Finder, the icon of the front document of
the current application.
-SuperAlias: opens any number of files, folders and applications at once.
Item list is easy to set and reconfigure.
-UltraClip: global glossary saves clipboard text to clipping files named
and placed automatically, or optionally with a name you choose. Or loads a
clipping back to the clipboard, optionally appending to existing text on
the clipboard. Clips are editable and searchable.
Requires two third-party scripting additions (osaxen): Akua Sweets, version
1.4.3 or later, and Dialog Director, version 0.7 or later. These are both
free for personal use at Info-Mac.
