True North Software Releases Station 3.0 – Multilevel Dock for macOS
True North Software releases Station 3.0, the multilevel (hierarchical) launcher for macOS. It promotes a more natural organization of applications and documents into folders. With nested folders, you can arrange items in Station in a way that fits your workflow with an uncluttered look and feel. Scalability is greatly increased through logical groupings thus increasing the sheer number of items that can be added to Station without having to shrink the launcher size.
Related items can be grouped together into a single folder. For example, one folder can contain work related items and another folder gaming items. Another useful feature of Station is the ability to launch, all at once, the items in a launch folder. This is useful when switching between tasks like business and spreadsheets to graphics work. With ten levels of folders available, enough space is provided to spread out even the most diverse set of applications and documents.
Version 3.0 offers many new features:
- The contents of Finder folders stored within Station can now be browsed through a live list menu
- A favorites window was added that is sourced from a designated Station folder
- Weblinks can now be renamed in the same manner as folder items
- Added a Station Keyboard Summary file that shows the key combinations that are used in Station
- Added a utility to identify panels containing broken links
- A preference was added to choose the default action for Finder folders (“Open Finder Folder” or “Show List View”)
- A preference was added to set the volume level for sounds within Station
