Does anyone know the terminal command to change a preference that is in 1 or more arrays? For example, inside com.apple.finder there is an array called ComputerOptions (which has options about the Computer window) and in that there is ComputerIconViewArangeBy.
Are those values you're attempting to set more than one level deep? If so, I'm unsure as to whether defaults would work on it...in which case, you may have to manually edit the plist file (~/Library/Preferences/com.apple.finder.plist)
If there isn't a way, then I can't make a Realbasic program that can set the default column widths (without actually having it open up the file as text, which I don't know how to do anyway)! Does anybody know how to go multiple levels deep in the Terminal or is it just impossible?!
P.S. Thanks blb for all of your help! Do you mind if I put you in the Special Thanks of the Read Me file?
