Product Announcement – True North Software of Plymouth, Minnesota has released Station 1.3, the company’s multilevel (hierarchical) launcher for macOS. Station promotes a more natural organization of applications and documents into folders. With nested folders, you can arrange items in Station in a way that fits your workflow with an uncluttered look and feel. Scalability is greatly increased through logical groupings thus increasing the sheer number of items that can be added to Station without having to shrink the launcher size.

Productivity is increased because related items can be grouped together into a single folder. For example, one folder can contain work related items and another folder gaming items. Another useful feature of Station is the ability to launch, all at once, the items in a launch folder. This is useful when switching between tasks like business and spreadsheets to graphics work. With ten levels of folders available, enough space is provided to spread out even the most diverse set of applications and documents.

What’s New for Version 1.3:

  • Added support for macOS transparency and Station specific transparency
  • You can now create a “folder icon” for a folder by holding down the option key and dragging an item to the folder icon
  • Added automated backups and snapshots of the Station data allowing you to restore to any backup
  • The preferences window was rearranged
  • Minor refinements and bug fixes

  • Up to ten levels of folders can be shown

  • Station can be displayed on the left, right or bottom side of the screen
  • Folders automatically open after a short delay when you drag items over them
  • Station can be displayed statically (always shown) or automatically hidden when not needed
  • The display name of a folder can be renamed (e.g. “untitled” to “Graphics”)
  • Scrollbar support for launch panels that exceed screen dimensions
  • Embedded open folder icon can now be either blue or red
  • Auto collapse of folders after launch of an item
