    I used afloat in Tiger to keep a app window always on top. But it seems that it is not working in Leopard.

    Anyone had same experience?

    BTW, do you have any suggestions for a similar application?

    Install the latest SIMBL, and (you will have to uninstall the old one first by deleting the SIMBL folder from user/library/applicationsupport and user/library/inputmanagers) and then install the stable build of afloat. That should get it working on Leopard.

    Best to check the Mac HD/library folders also for uninstalling the old SIMBL

    I contacted the creator about this, his response:

    A Leopard version was planned for January, but urgent matters (aka my
    graduation) have preempted it; a tentative release date would be in
    March, but I don't know if it's going to slip.

    I've just stumbled across this topic, and adjei7's solution work. :)

    I emailed the developer recently as well. He said the same thing as above; busy with graduation, but hopes to have it finished within the next few months. He said he didn't want to put a time to it, because it would most likely slip.

    Well, I'm happy that I've got Beta 3 working with Leopard :)

    Download Afloat 1.0 Stable Version Beta 3 (NOT Afloat 1.0b4)

    Go to developer's site and you can still download the Afloat Stable Version Beta 3 on dmg. Open the dmg file, then use ctrl-click to Show Package Contents of the Afloat.PrePane file. Inside Contents>Resources, you'll find the Afloat.bundle. Drag that file out and drop into:

    /Library/Application Support/SIMBL/Plugins/

    Restart any application, go to its menubar, you'll see Afloat exist under Window>drop-down menu again! Yeah :D (Credit to ELEGRAPHY at
