I'm having a slight issue with candybar. Every time I try to update my HD it crashes. I've tried to email panic about it but they're having a week off or something. Got an automated reply that they're not in the office until some date. Anyone having similar issues and found a fix?
I have an issue with my Candybar as well. Seems to crash randomly. Sometimes when trying to drag and drop icons. Sometimes without me doing anything, after a while. Granted I have not bought it yet, I don't plan on ever paying a company $29 for software that barely stays open for 5 minutes, to let me do something. :-!
It's served me great for a long time. Recently been acting up on me, though. It is a tad overpriced and an alternative that I heard about recently was iconbox. I'm not in the mood to ditch out more money before I hear from panic. It's just frustrating.
It can customize general icons for drives or assign any icon as a custom icon for any file/folder/volume. If you want to do the first thing, go to the SYSTEM section and navigate trough the sidebar (volumes icons are NOT in CoreTypes.bundle); if you want to assign a custom icon to a particular file/folder/volume, you have 2 choices: a) once you've selected the icon you want to assign, in iCondubber, open the contextual menu of the "big" icon on the right an click on "Assign as thumbnail to..."; b) copy an icon from a Finder window and then click on the "Clipboard" menu in the menubar, then click on "Assign as thumbnail to..."

I guess I'll just mention this here instead of making a new topic but is anyone else able to change their finder icon? I was doing software updates and when my computer restarted all the main system icons, etc went back to default and I got all of them to change in Candybar except Finder. I tried manually changing it but it still hasn't changed.

Had some trouble with Candybar as well, and even lost the default Open Folder state. I downloaded a trial version of IconBox, and even though I had restored system defaults with CandyBar, IconBox kept showing my system icons as being themed. After restoring system defaults, this time using IconBox, all is well again - including the Open Folder state
If I have not misunderstood, Rayy said he did already know IconBox too, but he still has problems with his icons, so this sounds like something not related to any icon manager in particular, but IMO it's more like an issue in his system.
About the HD icons not updating I think is the age-old thing where your permissions on the the HD needs to be read&write for all. Atleast that's what I've been doing when my HD icon for the main HD would not change. the CandyBar version I used never crashed on me I don't think.
I think I can't help any further.
CandyBar recently has been acting up here too. I never change system icons anymore but I experience the same things other people here does. I noticed that when I was creating a new CandyBar library the folder CandyBar created was named Pixadex instead of the usual 'CandyBar'.
