MagicMenu 2.0: It works great for me in Leopard for iTunes, but having problems in my up-to-date Tiger machine, where the menu won't hide.
Please provide exact version number for your Leopard and your Tiger installations. That will help me diagnose the problem. You can find the exact version number in "Apple Menu" -> "About This Mac". Thanks.
Guys, might you put this on iusethis.com? more folk should know about this little app - absolutely brilliant. thanks so much for nailing this - it was one of my last perennial gripes re osx ...
I've been looking for this thing for AGES!! This is awesome!
Two downsides though (other than the keychain problem):

What's iKey? How does it work? Have you tried to simply drag-and-drop your application directly onto the script(s)? How about trying to restart the application?
Thanks for your response, dropping the app onto the script worked like a charm. I somehow thought I only needed to run the script with the desired app in the foreground. :)
iKey is a macro app similar to the Automator that's included with OS X. I made it so that when I enter a keystroke the script would run, but it somehow didn't work. I haven't used iKey in ages and it may very well have disappeared when Automator showed up.
The spotlight search thing still doesn't work though. Typing cmd+space should normally make it pop up, but now nothing happens - It is now only accessible by mouse. Other Finder keystrokes (new window, new folder, close window, eject volume etc...) work fine.

hmm.... can't get any of em to work at all. Plus you have to enter your password every time you click on one of the applescripts.
You have to enter your password, because changing the application functionality is an administration task. You can make your life easier by dragging multiple applications at a time over to MagicMenu. That way you only have to enter the password once for all applications.
It would be really useful to know which plist files are being modified, and even more so to know what the Terminal commands are for these changes.
It's all documented in the "Related Links" section on the MagicMenu web page.
Cannot uninstall your app. completely. It still has control of the menu. Can sometimes get to Spotlight, but only thru keyboard shortcut, and that only sometimes; no mouse click at all for Spotlight. The program itself, except uninstall,worked fine. Just wanted to uninstall and reinstall, to see how friendly the program is. It is not friendly. What files do you modify, how many? There is no file "Info.MagicMenu". Plist files show nothing remains of magicmenu yet it is still in control of menu: ie, menu still hides/finds with mouse. What other files am I not finding? (I do like the program, don't like unfriendly uninstall). OS X is vrs. 10.4.11/PPC/g5.
Simply uninstalling MagicMenu will not turn off the auto-hide feature. You have to use MagicMenu to turn off the feature for the specific app(s) first. Then uninstall MagicMenu.
