Hello all, I've just bought my first Apple (the new Powerbook 12" model) after being a reader of these boards for a few months while researching my switch. I've got two main questions that I'm hoping you all can shed some light on, one technical and one convenience: 1. Whenever I try to use Finder to log onto a Windows share, Finder itself crashes. It's not always right away, but eventually it does, usually while I'm trying to transfer a file from the other computer to my hard drive. It uses Samba, right? I remember always having trouble with SMB shares back in my FreeBSD days. I can't Relaunch Finder with Cmd-Opt-Esc, I can't even shutdown the computer using the menu. I have to hold down the power button until the machine shuts down, the start back up. I've found one clue: Windows users can connect to my PB and upload to me just fine. Weird. Any ideas? (I've downloaded all updates, 10.3.8 etc) 2. Purely for convenience--is there any kind of Applescript or Plugin that will give Finder an equivalent to the Windows "Create New" menu? This menu is a right-click option in Windows Explorer that allows you to create a new document of various types in the current folder--text file, word document, spreadsheet, the like. It's incredibly nice to have, and I think it would fit well with the whole "document-not-application" mindset of OS X, but I haven't been able to find anything. Thanks, and Cheers!
