Thanks to 10.2, iJournal now has a Brushed Metal look to it.

I can't tell if that's sarcasm or not...

i doubt it's sarcasm... i dont think apple would release an OS update that accidently changes 3rd party apps' interface.

then again.... they might. i guess it's possible.

whatever. if it looks nice still, at least as nice as it does now, then cool! er, something. i dont really care. it's functionality is still intact, no? that's all that matters to me in the long run.

Ugh! I mean, joy...

Could you please post a screenshot? :)

ya... the new version of interface builder allows you to activate a "textured window" parameter which changes it to the brushed metal look. i assume that someone enabled this fairly recently, as all the builds leading up to 1.49 looked normal in 10.2.

my feelings about it are mixed, though in truth i don't really care that much. if you want to change it back, just download the source, and uncheck that option in the .nib file.

If you have Interface Builder, you might not even have to download the source. Just find the right NIB file in the applications Package Contents and change it. I did this with Mail.app in 10.0 to add a keyboard shortcut to a menu item I used frequently. To Cocoa (and some Carbon) apps, Interface Builder can be like a much-friendlier ResEdit.

That is correct. The nib file is:

And the option can be found by getting info on the main iJournal instance (top row on mine), Attributes tab, and at the very bottom, uncheck "Textured Window."

I just built the latest CVS release of iJournal--on 10.2 with the 10.2 Dev Tools--and I get the same interface. Am I missing something?

I built it from the CVS both a few days before installing 10.2 and the day I did, and neither build had the textured interface.

I don't think the nib file changed in that time, and textured was definitely unchecked in it as of yesterday (I did a clean checkout before making changes, because I'd made a lot of stuff ugly in the source while hacking it and I wanted to redo it a bit nicer.)

Anyway, if the interface is redone to take advantage of jaguar stuff, it definitely needs the cool spinny-thing instead of the barber-pole progress bar.
