You can clog up your Dock with icons or just choose to use the Magic Menu (AKA MagicMenu).
StuffIt Deluxe optionally uses Growl and MacFUSE. If you don't have 'em installed, you need to download them yourself.
SmartSend ended up not being a very smart way to send files. SmartConnect is a $50 annual subscription for a measly 2 GB of storage and 4 GB of monthly bandwidth.
Nothing to see here, move along.
Here are the compression prefs. See all that SmartSend stuff below? That's what made me believe that it was going to send a message using Mail, instead of shunting me off to a website.
If you want to reset the minimum size of a file for it to be sent through StuffIt Connect, you do it here and also choose the transmission method.
Here's what you can do with setting up where StuffIt Deluxe (or one of the many sub-programs that make up StuffIt Deluxe) eventually stores files that are compressed or decompressed.
Maybe I just didn't spend enough time with StuffIt Deluxe, but I wasn't really sure what the heck these Menu Options were for.
Instead of one program, StuffIt Deluxe is a confusing collection of many applications.
Here's the Expander interface.
You can change the setup for Expander, or create Droplets.
This is the user interface for StuffIt Archive Manager. You can set up scheduled backups through SAM.
Here StuffIt, or one of the many components, was compressing a file to send. I couldn't figure out how it was going to send the file without bringing up Mail.
Here's the Web interface, where you have to address your message to the recipients. I would have preferred it if the software had just written the email and sent it from Mail.
Once you receive the email, you go to the website to retrieve the file. If you don't have StuffIt Expander, you get to download it. Why can't they just use the standard .zip format and eliminate the need for StuffIt Expander?
I was very happy to uninstall this application.
