Witch 3.5.2 description
Witch 3.5.2 is developed to be an interesting as well as helpful tool which lets you access all of your windows by pressing a shortcut and choosing from a clearly arranged list of window titles.
- Application switching is slow
- If you keep a lot of windows open in a number of applications, you've experienced the frustration of switching between those windows: Command-Tab to switch apps, then cycle windows within the app to find the one you want.
- If you're lucky, you can cycle the windows with the keyboard, or you may have to go digging in its menus or Dock icon to find the other open windows.
- You can try Exposé instead, but with many windows open, it too can be a frustrating experience—ever notice how shrunken Exposé windows all look alike? Exposé is also not very keyboard friendly.
- Why mess around with switching applications then windows when Witch lets you switch directly to the window you want to work with?
- Window switching is fast and fun
- With Witch installed, a pop-up panel shows all open windows—even windows in other Spaces, if you're running 10.6. From the panel, simply select the window you'd like to activate. There is no step two!
- But switching windows is just the first of many tricks for Witch—see below for everything else it can do!
- Pop-up Previews
- New! If you work with a lot of open windows with similar names, sometimes it can be tough to keep them all straight. Witch solves that problem by providing a pop-up preview of every window in its panel. Just leave a window selected for two seconds, and the pop-up appears:
- With a quick glance at a preview image, you can tell exactly which window it is you'd like to activate.
- If you prefer, you can even opt to see shrunken versions of the preview images in place of the standard icons displayed in Witch's panel.
- You can control the speed at which these previews appear—or even whether they appear at all—in Witch's preferences.
- See into Spaces
- New! Witch is fully Spaces-aware—it can see all windows in all Spaces1, as long as you're running Mac OS X 10.6 or newer. (Witch relies on a Spaces-related framework that doesn't exist in 10.5.)
- If you have Spaces enabled, Witch's Spaces support is automatically enabled as well, but it can be easily disabled in Witch's Preferences.
- Witch can also display Space number badges, so you can see exactly where each window resides.
- Witch is a great addition to Spaces, as it gives you even more control over Mac OS X's virtual desktop feature.
- Change the look
- If you don't like the default appearance of the Witch window switcher, you're in luck: it can be customized.
- Changes made to the appearance tab take effect immediately, so you can quickly see the results of your handiwork.
- The Appearance tab makes it simple to customize Witch to your liking. You can pick from one of five pre-made themes, or easily create your own.
- And now, in Witch 3, you can save those themes as well!
- Save Witch's appearance settings
- In Witch 3, not only can you customize the appearance of the switching panel, you can save—and load—those customized appearance settings.
- This means you no longer need to worry if you want to tweak your current appearance—just save it first, try your changes, and if you don't like them, select the saved settings to restore the old appearance.
- You can also easily share themes with others by sending them an appearance file, and you can load files they send to you.
- Replace Command-Tab
- Witch 3 now lets you assign Command-Tab and Shift-Command-Tab (or Command-`) as the Witch activation keys. Set up in this manner, Witch replaces the Command-Tab application switcher.
- Witch 3 also mimics some of the Command-Tab switcher's functionality. When you press H (hide) or Q (quit) with Witch active, the action occurs immediately, as it does with Command-Tab.
- Witch adds more useful when-active keystrokes, too: M to minimize a window, Z to zoom it to full screen, and W to close it.
- In addition, A and Shift-A will jump by application (instead of moving window-by-window), J and K will move the selection down and up (as in vi), T and B (or Home and End) will jump to the top or bottom of the panel, and F will reveal a selected document (or app with no open windows) in Finder.
- Press F to show the currently-selected document in a Finder window. If you've got an app with no open windows selected, that app will be shown in a Finder window.
- New! Press P (or Space Bar) to pop up a preview image, even when previews are disabled.
- Finally, press Comma while the Witch panel is visible to open Witch's settings—just like in most any other Mac OS X application.
- Details done right
- As with other Many Tricks products, Witch's objective is to do its job well without getting in your way. To that end, Witch includes these niceties:
- Choose any of the first ten windows with a single keypress.
- Switch between only minimized windows or only non-minimized windows in all applications, or in only the frontmost application.
- New! Add a gradient to the selection background, and control its intensity and direction.
- Use document icons (when available) instead of application icons in the switcher panel.
- See application icon overlays when using document icons. These small badges tell you at a glance which app created which document.
- Limit the width of Witch's switcher panel, to help control excessively-long window titles, as found on many web sites.
- Specify applications and window titles that Witch should not list in the switcher.
- Sort Witch's switcher panel by application activity order (like Command-Tab does with applications), or by application name, or a few other ways to suit your needs.
- There are simply too many additional features to list here; just download the free trial and test Witch for yourself to see what it's all about.
- Fixed an inconsistency in how Witch handles apps with windows in other Spaces, when Spaces support is disabled.
- Fixed a bug that occurred when a user had set the keyboard repeat rate to 'off.'
- Witch 3.5.2 runs natively on both Intel- and PowerPC-based Macs, and requires Mac OS X 10.5 or later. (Mac OS X 10.6 or later required for Spaces support.)
