If you right click on an application in finder and choose show package contents, you will see that there are folders within. Is it possible to create a symbolic link to one of these folders? If so, how can it be done?

Thanks.

Yes, easily done with terminal.

sudo ln -s "source path" "target path"

Without the quotes, sudo is only needed if you don't have permissions for either or both of the paths.

Leave spaces in between -s and source and source and target path.
