@eBara Thank you for the very helpful information!
I guess this stupid Apple bug is worse than I thought, lol — I wasn’t aware it was possible to end up with a file/folder that is broken in the way that yours is.
(※ The broken files/folders I was able to produce during development had the correct value stored in com.apple.metadata:_kMDItemUserTags, but com.apple.FinderInfo was either missing entirely, or had no tag/label colour information. I guess the opposite can happen too, huh.)
I have already fixed this locally in my development build, and the fix will be pushed alongside the upcoming TotalFinder 1.15.1.
@akemin_dayo I just wanted to let you know that I updated to latest TF yesterday (it actually prompted me before I got a chance to go from 12.6 to 13.1, so I updated and then just now I updated to 13.1 on my silicon laptop and all went super smoothly. Once I was on 13.1 it just needed to enable for arm64e ABI support and I clicked to do that automatically and once I restarted everything was perfect.
All I can say is ! You’ve really made my day.
(Also, you can change your home folder icon by simply using Get Info on it!)
Never thought to try that. I thought the home folder required an app to change the icon. But weirdly, both IconChamp and CandyBar were unable to do it, but simply pasting it in the Get Info window worked. Thanks.
If only there was a way to change the icons in the Finder toolbar. I despise the glyphs that Apple uses now in Monterey. I miss having colourful icons for Applications, home, etc in the Finder toolbar.
Hi, installed it on my MacBook Pro M2 fresh install with latest Ventura and doing all the steps in the tutorial ( only disabling SIP partial )
and I noticed my GPU Memory usage suddenly is insanely high - start with 90 % instead off the 11% I had before and then goes down to around 50-60% but still 6 times as much as before. see my screenshot. activated is:
keep dock icon
show progress bar
hide icon in menu bar
colored labels on
use finder icon rendering
tabs disabled completley
I just uninstalled total finder and reset all SIP etc settings according to tutorial - I now still have a full memory usage and so my macOS is now totally broken I suppose and I habe to do a clean install again… I was sooo hoping to use total finder again and appreciate all the work put in… but of course this is a dealbreaker for me I need that memory for video editing in resolve etc
one thing to consider because I only now saw it, because I didn’t have the app yet to check for it.
If you use the app iStatistica Pro, then you see how much memory of the shared memory is assigned to the GPU.
This shared memory always varies all over time, and it greatly varies if you open big apps.
You also constantly see the free memory.
Out of these two, the percentage is calculated, and that is persistent with istats pro, or Istatistica pro.
So the pure percentage can be misleading, still, I win now from a 10% to at least 25% over sometime in mostly 50 to 60%, so something really must be wrong, maybe a memory leak, or it has something to do with SIP or security level or similar.
found a funny behaviour. So for the reason you use Timemachine from MacOS, then go into it and restore any file you want. After this Timemachine action, TF windows can be taken apart with the mouse and it’s not so resposive anymore.
When restarting TF it’s fine again!
Just to let you know for the next update.
thanks for keeping this great helper alive.
With Ventura on Intel, colored labels are working backwards. This means, when there are several tags the oldest one determins the colour. Would be great to change this to the newest tag determins the label color - as it was before. or is there a way to change this? In the moment you need first to remove all tags to change the color of the label.
