The more I use Tiger, the more I keep running into little things I never knew you could do. Just today, for instance, I accidentally hit “Apple-Shift-N” to create a new folder… while in a “Save Dialogue Box” and it works! Had no idea you could do this. Have no clue as to how long this has been available. Now, of course, I use it constantly.

Hmmm, I think creating folders in these windows has been possible for a long time. Since System 8 at least, I’d say. Of course the keyboard equivalent was the simpler Command-N at the thime.

yeah the weather widget regularly stops working for me as well. sometimes it helps to remove it from the dashboard and add it back again; or to re-type the location, then let it validate;but usually it doesn’t.

speaking of re-typing the location: it still cracks me up that I spent a week waiting for rain that never came because my widget was set to “Berlin” instead of “Berlin, Germany”. “Berlin” apparently maps to “Berlin, Massachusetts”…
