iTunes terminal tipps 2010

September 13, 2010 by Michael

4 years ago i had a first iTunes terminal tipp, here is a round up (all terminal tipps require Mac OS X):

Invert the iTunes Store links in the list

The littler arrows can either point to the iTunes store or to the same artist or album in your library. Invert their behavior to let them point to your files instead of the store:

defaults write invertStoreLinks -bool YES

Undo this with

defaults write invertStoreLinks -bool NO

Disable them with

defaults write show-store-arrow-links -boolean FALSE

Enable them with

defaults write show-store-arrow-links -boolean TRUE

Restore the horizontal stoplight

Again, Apple messes with it’s own UI guidelines. To restore sanity, use

defaults write full-window -boolean TRUE

Reenable the vertical layout introduced with iTunes 10 through

defaults write full-window -boolean FALSE

Enable half-star ratings

The following will let you rate your songs with half-star ratings (i.e 3.5 stars):

defaults write allow-half-stars -bool TRUE

If you don’t like the fact, that the half-star ratings will round on any i* device, turn it off again:

defaults write allow-half-stars -bool FALSE
