    So there are a lot of nifty features in Tiger, of which some don't work yet but this is not about the bugs it is about what you liked in Panther and is changed now for the worse.

    These are mine and I have got to say they are not only bugging the hell out of me, they almost made me want to switch back. Now I can't decide. Tiger is awesome and all but these are getting my blood boiling. What are the things you don't like in tiger over Panther?

    Preview
    • you cannot copy items/pictures form the drawer to other places anymore
    • zoom to selection toolbar item is gone

    Mail
    • status bar for email sending is gone

    OSX
    • Vicky sounds worse than in Panther
    • Trash can sound sounds awfully hissy and high
    • You cannot disable the annoying new user interface sounds without disabling the useful ones like the trash can sound


    -----------------------
    iPhoto
    • you cannot drag/copy pictures from iPhoto to other place (i.e. the desktop) anymore
    works now after trashing the plist

    Not sure about the others, but I can copy images from iPhoto 5 by dragging onto my desktop or onto my HD and through springloading to anywhere else.

    Hmmm, doesn't work for me. I get the no drop sign when I try. I'll try to trash the preferences and restart, maybe that'll do it.

    You guys do have iPhoto 5.02 and Tiger right?

    Exactly that, and no problem at all.

    Trashing the plist worked. Now if only I could drag pictures from preview's drawer again.... :(
