Using standard Aqua toolbar on Tiger w/ NetNewsWire

We’ve had lots of people tell us that they really like how NetNewsWire uses the unified title/toolbar look on Tiger. And we’ve heard from two people who prefer the traditional Aqua horizontal stripes.

Things like this are very much a matter of personal taste, of course.

At any rate, anticipating that there would be a few people who prefer the traditional look, we added a hidden pref that tells NetNewsWire to use the traditional toolbar look.

Here’s what to do:

1. Quit NetNewsWire.

2. In Terminal, copy-and-paste the following then hit return:

defaults write com.ranchero.NetNewsWire traditionalAquaToolbar YES

3. Launch NetNewsWire—it will use the horizontal-stripes toolbar look.

If you want to go back to unified title/toolbar, repeat the above but with NO instead of YES.
