This app works with: SheepShaver, Basilisk II,

AliasMenu adds drop-down menus to your menubar that are always present, regardless of the application your working in (no wait, you can elect to have your menus only seen from Finder). You can place folders in the "AliasMenu Items" folder, label them 1 up to 9 (no wait, label them 001 up to 999), place icons on the folders that symbolize what each folder means to you, and fill the folders with any aliases you like. These items will show up in the pull-down menus.

Top DL: AliasMenu v1.1
2nd DL: AliasMenu v2.0
3rd DL: AliasMenu v2.1 (July 1999)
4th DL: AliasMenu v2.2 (November 1999)

-Registration (tested v2.1):
User> Hot Six
Company> Cracking Service
Serial Number> 1092030784

Architecture: 68k PPC

AliasMenu version 1.1 has some minor quirks when used with Mac OS 8's new Finder.

Version 2.0 and above plays nicely in Mac OS 8.0 and newer.

Version 2.1 and 2.2 are known to work fine in Mac OS 9.2.2

Please note, if specifically downloading .hqx files from on-line archives, always right-click the link to get a download menu. Otherwise the download may corrupt.

I seem to be missing a trick. I am using the first version on a 68k. I have the menu appearing, but all I can get it to display is one level deep. I'm also using BeHierarchic (recommended in readme of a later version). I'd like a menu representation of my Aliases folder (with subfolders full of aliases)

Uploaded v2.2 (Nov. 1999). Changes according to ReadMe:
"Default Folder and Multiple Users support. Text menu titles can now be displayed in colors. An obscure compatibility problem with SpellCatcher and PhotoTools used together has hopefully been fixed. The same fix should improve compatibility with Japanese input method over Claris/AppleWorks 5. Apple Click is now AliasMenu-savvy."

If it wasn't for FinderPop, I'd be all over this one, too. With FinderPop, you can just click anywhere on the menu bar that doesn't have a menu yet (rather than being forced to click on a specific corner as menus require from us), and FinderPop's menu will pop up instead. It allows for not just aliases like this one, but also much else. (Process switching, window switching, plus a lot else.)

No problem, these thing do happen.
I replaced the corrupted versions with good copies. Saves you some time Wink

My apologies, I got all those files for, another abandonware archive. I noticed they had lots of apps & utilities we lack here. I will reupload them when I get a chance.

I couldn't get the 2.0 file to unstuff

Yes, the .hqx is missing its headers and a portion of the binhex coding - its fubar. The top version 2.0 requires replacing with a good copy, or removal if a good copy can't be located.

Thanks for adding the 1.1 & 2.1 versions to the page.

I couldn't get the 2.0 file to unstuff, so I added 1.1 and 2.1 versions that I have tested on 7.6
