I just upgraded to 10.6.8 to Lion (10.7.2).  Under 10.6.8 and previous releases of OS X, at the bottom of any Finder window, there was a footer that reported the current usage and available space of the disk of mounted volume I was looking at.  On Lion, that footer is missing.  How do I get that footer back?




MacBook Pro, Mac OS X (10.7.2)

    Awesome! I didn't even look for that. I withdraw ONE of my complaints about Lion (I have a lot).

    I've solved a lot of Lion complaints.


    Anything in particular?

    Hrmmm, I don't think you will be able to solve any of the ones I can think of off the top of my head. I'm generally not a very big fan of the reduced availability of info and controls in the UI. I'm the geek who leaves Activity Monitor running in the dock so I know if my computer is working to hard. The dissapearance of the status bar is definitely one specific thing I've complained about, but I don't think I could come with more specifics unless I was using it at that moment.


    But some other complaints:


    Biggest one is that I have to select and input the password for my WiFi network every time I login or wake the computer. Obviously, this is a bug, but it has been a very persistant one. If think you can help there, here is the post: https://discussions.apple.com/message/16825097#16825097


    Address Book and iCal I hate. I guess I'm the sucker for still using the things, but I have been very happy with them up until now. iCal is mostly fine (though I need a few extra clicks to get at some stuff), but Address Book is a real turd. And they both look terrible, but I wouldn't care if they still worked fine.


    iCloud won't sync iWork documents between Macs and iOS devices. Bought Lion with that specific functionality in mind.



    Lion isn't a total loss. I like restoring programs at login. I like autosave. I like Mission Control. The new Mail is kind of a wash, with some good and some bad. I have never had so many problems and dissapointments with an Apple product though. I'm usually the guy poopooing the complainers. Lately though, Windows 7 has seemed a lot rosier.
