    How can I put a custom text in the menu bar? :confused:

    It doesn't seem to be possible. Google search yields no good results, buttler doens't do that and I'm out of ideas.

    Many thanks for the contribution!

    It's probably impossible without some "hack" to the system, or writing your own menulet. OS X is not designed to allow easy customisation.

    Why do you want to do this?

    I want to put a note there's always visible on what i"m working on. Focusbar is too intrusive, growl notifications too.

    I have all this free space in the menubar that I'm not using for anything.

    How big's your monitor? :eek:

    Space certainly isn't a premium, so perhaps you could find some other bit of your display to use for reminders.
    I would have thought that Apple's Notification system would work well for this. Or go back to the Stickies app.

    (Or actual Post-it Notes™...!)
