What is Dialog View?

Dialog View is a control panel that allows you to change the appearance of directory dialogs (Open and Save dialogs).  You can control what kind of icons are used, increase the height and width of the file list, and set the font for the file list.  It requires System 7 or later.  Certain critical routines are accelerated for PowerPC.

Compatibility notes

Compatibility Notes    

Dialog View will not run in the presence of Norton Directory Assistance.

The control panel may crash in the presence of MenuFonts.  As a workaround, you could start up with MenuFonts disabled, configure Dialog View, and then restart again with MenuFonts back on.

The Delete dialog, the Links search dialog, and perhaps others, in Microsoft Excel have a conflict with stretching.

The MoviePlayer application from Apple has a conflict with stretching.

Dialog View should load before Default Folder, Aladdin’s Desktop Shortcut, and OneClick.  You can change the order using an extension manager, or by renaming something to change the alphabetic order.

MasterJuggler’s main dialog may look like a standard directory dialog, but it isn’t.  Since it does not use Apple’s routines, my patches do not affect it.

Versions of the Metrowerks CodeWarrior compilers before 5.5 had an incompatibility with vertical stretching.  If you use these compilers, you should create preference sets for them in which you either uncheck “Stretch”, or specify a relatively small value (say, 300) for maximum dialog height.  The HP DeskScan II application has a similar problem.

When you select a font beyond number 31, the little triangle in the font pop-up may be gray.  This is a harmless Apple bug.

Emulating this? It could probably run under: SheepShaver
