One of my new year’s resolutions was to try to do a screencast per week here on The Apple Blog. Second week into the year and I nearly blew that one! It’s just been a busy week, I emerge triumphant. (at least until I run out of ideas for screencasts…) However it was pretty late (as in the AM) and I was tired when I recorded this, so cut me a little slack if it’s not perfect this time.
Today’s screencast covers the Catalog in Quicksilver. The catalog is the part that determines what stuff on your system is accessible to you through Quicksilver’s interface. I touch on custom catalog creation and tweaking, as well as setting up access to your social bookmark accounts (though only del.icio.us and Ma.gnolia are currently supported through the plugins).
In the screencast, at about the 6:27 mark I expected that un-checking an item in the contents of a custom catalog would drop the count when rescanning that catalog. In reality, the count of that catalog item stays the same, but the items that have been unchecked are no longer searchable through Quicksilver.
So here it is: QuicksilverCatalogs.mov
It’s just shy of 41mb in size, and runs 9 minutes and 24 seconds.
If you’ve got questions, leave them below in the comments and I’ll do my best to answer them promptly. Also, with my ambitious goal of a screencast a week, I’ll be needing ideas, so I welcome requests and ideas of things you’d like to see. Hit up the Contact Page and leave me your ideas. Thanks!
