AppearanceHopper fills customization holes in the standard Mac OS 8.5, by giving you access to features that are not editable from the Appearance control panel.

"System Fonts" allows you to use any font as your Small or Large System Font. The tab panes show the currently available fonts; change the entries in the list with the "Add...", "Edit...", and "Remove" buttons. The "Defaults" button resets the entries to Mac OS 8.5 defaults. The "Use Font" button will set the selected font to be your Small or Large System Font.

"Scrolling" contains scrollbar options. If you want the size of the scroll box to change in relation to the size of your documents, check the "Proportional scroll box" checkbox. The placement of scroll arrows can be changed with the three radio buttons. Your options will be reflected in the preview, and take effect immediately.

"Application Switcher" offers an interface to the application palette introduced in Mac OS 8.5. The controls are spread among two tab panes. In the "Position" pane, you can anchor the palette to any corner, and change it between horizontal and vertical orientations. In the "Appearance" pane, you can set the space allocated for application names, change the icon size, and more.

"Finder Views" allows you to set the Views font and size, the alias style (italic by default in Mac OS 8.5), and the suffix added to an alias created with the Finder's "Make Alias" command. In addition, you can show or hide the arrow badge added to aliases.

Architecture: PPC

Mac OS 8.5 or higher required, thereby also requiring a PPC.
