I'm playing around with Candybar to change some icons and it has a strange behavior. When I drag new icon to the application (Firefox) in it changed in Candybar, I'm asked to apply the changes and restart the Dock but the icons are not changed.I made a short video that show the problem.I also tried to just restart OSX but it doesn't work either.
I have used CandyBar to change the icon for my iDisk. However I have run into some strangeness On the desktop, if I quit and then reconnect to the iDisk it will show the new icon for a moment and then change it back to the default purple drive with the cloud picture. yet, in the finder on the left hand side it shows the new icon. But at the top of the finder window it shows the default icon. WTF? I have tried changing it in CandyBar several times but this is always the behaviour after the changes
I've been trying to change my docks theme for the past few days but have been unable. I've used Candybar, Dock Library etc. and none of them seem to work. I'm really annoyed because it used to work for me. Any suggestions on how I can remedy this problem?
How do I change my dock icons without candybar? Every tutorial I find either only tells you how to make the icons, but never tells you how to swap icons, like the finder icon for example. (I want to make the pumpkin finder for halloween.)Anyone know of a tutorial that shows how to swap them? Or where these original icons are on the computer?
I've been using Candybar but $30 seems way too much for me to buy. I know I can change the recycling bin and Finder with copy and paste but this doesn't work for iChat for example. Are there any good alternative programs or ways of doing this?
i like to keep my dock populated with apps that i use regularly i want to keep FaceTime there so i went and slightly altered the icon and found it a little tricky to change using the conventional methods.So as well as sharing my new icon (which is just the actual FaceTime icon without the triangle on the right) i thought i would put together a wee guide in case anyone else wants to do so.Step 1. Navigate to the FaceTime application in the Applications folder (or wherever you have stored it in Finder)tep 2. Right click on the application icon and select show package contents..
I'm looking to change my icons systemwide, but I can't afford Candybar. Is there any free alternative that I can use icontainer files with?Not LiteIcon, because I can't get the icontainer I want to use (Kobhens) to work with it.
i just purchased candybar about 2 weeks ago on my imac. love the convenience of the program, but i may be selling the computer soon.i'll definately put a fresh install of leopard on the imac befor selling.if i buy a macbook, can i use my candybar serial..or do i need to purchase it again?
I use change my icons, at least the dock ones to make them look uniform. I usually manually change them, (copy, ctrl+i, paste) but for ical I had a problem. I did the normal routine and it did work. It changed the icon to what I wanted, until I opened the program. Then it changed it back to the default icon. So I used Candybar to do the samething, and the same thing happened. I did this for about 20 icons or so, and they all changed, except for ical. Well it did change initally but when I opened it, it reverted.
How do you change the hard drive icon picture in the top right corner to look like the macbook pro computer? I've seen this on a couple people's desktops and was just wondering how you do it. Also, how do you change the folder icon to something that looks cooler.
I was using candybar to edit some icons. Then while it was restarting the dock the application, i think, crashed. After that my dock was no more I have tried making another login but still the dock is missing I dont believe that anything got deleted idk. Also I opened candybar again and I pressed the button to make it restore all the changes is made. It completed the restore but my dock was still missing.
I'm pretty interested in customizing my icons and creating sets and things like that with CandyBar, but I have NO idea as to how to change an icon or how to use CandyBar. Also, how hard is it to restore all the icons to defaults?
still getting used to apple osx i just copied the app candybar and imported several folders of icons. However now when i try to make a new collection and add more icons it doesnt show the icons would i have to reinstall the app any advice would be great.
I'm afraid I'm having a Windows user moment. Sometimes I still fail to do things the easy, intuitive way, even after roughly 4 years in OS X. I have 5 hard drives in my Mac Pro, one of them is my boot Intel SSD. I want that icon to be distinct from the others (another is a Time Machine drive). I've downloaded two files that would work for me, one was a png and the other a .ico file, but when I copy the icon from the top left corner of the 'get info' pane on the desired file, and then paste it int he correlating top left corner of the SSD 'get info' pane, it pastes the generic PNG or ICO icon, not the actual icon image I desire.
I cant figure out how to change the background color of it in candybar. I'm sick of the standard grey mac color.When I'm in candybar I go to the dock section-->view-->dock-->preview background..the options under preview background are greyed out. Also when I am in the dock section-->view-->background-->change color. I try changing the color but it doesn't change. Am I doing something wrong..or what?
Right now, in my Stacks area I have my Firefox Downloads, Music, Movies, Pictures, and Documents. Most of them have a folder as the first item, so unless I mouse over them, I don't know which one is which. I had those folders have different icons in Tiger, but I'm not sure how to go about changing them now.
I have a problem when I attempt to change icons. I know the method of using "Get Info", copy, paste is standard, but recently when I hit "Get Info" for the icon I want to use it only gives me the the file type icon, such as PNG, rather than the icon that I want to use. I know it's tough to explain so I can take a screen cap if you don't quite understand. I tried using CandyBar but even then it wouldn't give me the option to change the icons I wanted to, which are only the MS Office icons (Nothing fancy.)
You know how in your users folder you have a lot of folders (named Downloads, Documents, Music, Movies, etc), they have icons on them. How can I attach one of them to a regular folder? And also changed a folder icon totally? I know for folder changing CandyBar can do it, was just hoping there is something more practical in the OS for that
I seem to have a glitch preventing me from changing my internal HD icon. I have no troubles changing icons for folders or external drives, but since recently getting myself a new internal, it just stays on the default. I even tried using CandyBar (was doing the other changing by hand) but that thinks the icon I want is already applied, although it doesn't display in Finder or anything like that. Reapplying or trying to use a different icon doesn't work either. (And the icon works fine when I apply it to other things, just not drive I want it to work on.) Does any one know how to fix this? The horrible drive icon is bugging me; I'm used to the pretty one that matches my other drives.
(I should probably add, I can change the default internal drive icon using CandyBar, but this isn't what I want since that changes both my HD icon and my Windows partition icon and I want them to be different and since Windows is NTFS, this seems like the easiest way to change it's icon. I'm open to suggestions which involve a different method of changing the windows partition icon.)
So I am trying to change my safari icon. And pre-SL all I had to do was "Get info" and click on the little icon and copy it then "get info" on the icon I want to change and click on that icon and paste. This is not working.
I would like to increase my icon size, I know you can go to View tab under Finder and change it, but it only change that specific folder, it doesn't change all the other icon elsewhere, does anyone know how to do that.
