Downloading and Installing
Q: Does PackUpAndGo handle Mac files with resource forks?|
A: PackUpAndGo is based on Unix utilities that don't know about resource forks. The latest version of PackUpAndGo will warn you when you are about to compress a file that includes a resource fork. Many Macintosh files (including HTML and PDF files) don't use resource forks; but others (including font files) do.
Q: How can I use PackUpAndGo without using up valuable screen space with the large window with the chisel guy?
A: You can drag files and folders to the PackUpAndGo icon in the dock. If you've set a target folder in Preferences, the compressed files will be placed there; otherwise, they'll be placed in the same folder as the original uncompressed folder. If you want to be able to drag the file made by PackUpAndGo, you can resize the window to be a little larger than the drag well.
Q: I upgraded to Mac OS X 10.1 and now PackUpAndGo doesn't work!
A: Download and install the latest PackUpAndGo from our website.
Q: Why can't I access PackUpAndGo from the Finder's Services menu?
A: Most Carbon apps (including Finder) so far don't have any code to actually deal with the Services menus. They have to do custom code. Needless to say, when Finder supports Services, PackUpAndGo will "just work."
