Broken disk image layouts

February 09, 2009

Many OS X DMG installers have some “landing page” where you open the disk image and they have some nice background image and some other icons that you can interact with, to drag into Applications folder etc. And these layouts completely break when you have people like me who have the advanced “Show hidden files in Finder” option turned on, which magically starts showing other (hidden) folders that completely break the layout.
