|Background custom icon service program for OSX Finder.
iconXprit enhances the Finder's services with its menu containing several icon relevant functions. In addition to a few basics of custom icon attachment and removal, it offers advanced features such as defining group colors, adding editable text, customizable menu, and an editor including a scribble tool, effect filters and free transformation.
After installation, ctrl-click (or right-click) an item in the Finder to get its contextual menu including "iconXprit". Then, select the menu item (click once) to get the full iconXprit service menu.
To skip the first step, you can assign a keyboard shortcut to "iconXprit" (e.g. ⇧⌘X; cf. "Services Preferences…" under the Finder menu).
For quicker use, it is recommended to launch iconXprit on the system start-up and keep its status visible in the menubar, though these settings can be changed in the iconXprit preferences.
What's new in v.3.1.4:
▪ Bug fix to prevent tooltips hanging after the iconXprit menu is closed.
What was new in v.3.1.3:
▪ The iconXprit service menu is revised.
▪ Prevents "Help Viewer" from connecting to this site (thanks to Daniel for his reports).
▪ A "matte" option is added to the shiny effect ("+α…" button on the editor).
▪ Bug fix by attaching text ("Add Text…") and a few other internal modifications.
