Changin Alias in MacOS 8.1?

Hello World,

are there any tools for MacOS 8.1 (68k) to change an Alias (if the source file has changed)?
Best would be a drag, drop & edit solution.

Hi,

May be AliasMultiplier can do that job well ? I have not tested it.

I found out that a little tool called "Snitch" does the job just fine. It actually even repairs a broken alias by itself, by looking for the best match nearby.

I used to use The Snitch; it was really useful and usually worked really well.

The snitch is an amazing tool so good indeed that I would still be willing to pay for my MacOS 8.1 version - if they would only let me Wink
If an alias is broken it even looks for and suggests the right replacement automatically.
