    I have a detailed hierarchy of folders and files that I need to print a table of contents for. Is it possible to do this through OS X (either by directly printing, or exporting to another file, etc.)? I'd hate to type out the whole thing if there's an easier way.

    Thanks a lot for your help,

    Canada, eh?
    One way to do it is via Terminal, if you're comfortable navigating files in there. Type the command "find ." (with a space and a period" and it will list all of the file and folder paths below wherever you're sitting when you invoke the command.

    Thanks, this worked perfectly. It took me a little bit to figure out Terminal because I haven't used it before, but this will save me a huge amount of time.

    Thanks again.
