Thanks for your response Raam! Being a fairly new Mac user, I haven’t tried doing anything with the terminal commands. I haven’t even explored the Apple script writer yet. I used DOS back before Windows, and used to be familiar with enough UNIX commands to do basic GIS analysis, but you know the drill… don’t use you lose it 😉 I’m sure I could get my head around it but it would take more hours than I have to spend on it.. hence my search for quick fix.
Since I’m still using Mountain Lion I’m wondering if maybe the “old” GUU might work.
On another note, the software updates banner on my Mac is driving me crazy – pops out about every 5 min for non-essential updates. I haven’t found a setting to change it so at some point will probably have to dive into terminal..
