I often use FileTyper 5.5.1. It has a feature where you can change the
type and creator, among other things. FileTyper has a "same as" button
which allows you to duplicate the type and creator from another file.
You can use this feature, browse to a "good" package item, and it will
duplicate the information. In my experience, it still will not change
the icon used by the item on OS X ... However, it will be recognized by
Newton Connection Utilities and allow you to install it on the Newton.


Remember, amateurs built the Ark. Professionals built the Titanic.
