Chapter 1. Using Mac OS X > Opening and Saving Documents

1.9. Opening and Saving Documents

As mentioned earlier, all Open and Save dialogs in Mac OS X Panther use features of the Finder's user interface, making it easy to navigate through the filesystem until you find the folder or file you're seeking. This section discusses the Open and Save dialogs in more detail, showing you how to find what you're looking for on your Mac.

1.9.1. The Open Window

The Open dialog, shown in Figure 1-33, is very similar to the Finder. The dialog features the very same Sidebar that the Finder has and opens in a Column View for navigating through disks and folders for the item you want to open. Above the Column View is a pop-up menu that shows the path the folder or disk that's selected in the View's path, as shown in Figure 1-37.
