NetNewsWire 5 for Mac Help

Hidden Preferences

NetNewsWire has very few preferences – only what’s strictly necessary.

We may occasionally implement esoteric features. In those cases, rather than overloading the Preferences window with options most people won’t use, we make them hidden or expert preferences. They can only be changed by hand, using a Terminal command.

If you use any of these, please note:

Hide unread badge in Dock

If you’re using NetNewsWire 5.0.1 or newer, you can change the Dock badge setting in NetNewsWire’s Preferences window. This was a hidden preference in 5.0, but now it’s visible, so the use of a defaults command is no longer necessary.

Use a traditional window title bar

You can use the traditional-style title bar which displays the title bar and toolbar separately. This also enables the “Icon and Text” option for toolbar buttons. Enter this command:

defaults write com.ranchero.NetNewsWire-Evergreen KafasisTitleMode -bool YES

To restore the default, modern-style combined title bar and toolbar appearance, enter:

defaults write com.ranchero.NetNewsWire-Evergreen KafasisTitleMode -bool NO
