Open Recent Office 2008 Docs by Date

Office 2008 applications like Word and Excel now list recently opened documents on a File > Open Recent submenu. Choose More from that menu, and you'll get a multifunction Project Gallery dialog. Click the Recent button at the top and then select a date range in the Dates list to find files that were last opened today, yesterday, earlier in the week, last week, and so forth. (The Settings pane in the Project Gallery dialog lets you set how many recently opened files show in the File > Open Recent submenu.)

iSync Public Beta Released

Send Article to a Friend

iSync Public Beta Released -- More than two months after previewing iSync at Macworld Expo, Apple has released a public beta of its multifaceted synchronization software. This initial version includes support for synchronizing data to .Mac accounts, iPods, and supported cellular phones (such as the Sony-Ericsson T68i demonstrated at Macworld). Palm devices are supported through an iSync conduit that works with HotSync Manager; you need HotSync Manager 3.0, part of the Palm Desktop 4.0 package. As expected in a public beta, some functionality is missing or incomplete: notes or memos in Palm devices do not sync, the Conflict Resolver dialog does not display all fields properly, you can't synchronize with .Mac through a proxy server, and in several cases you could end up with duplicate records. As always, be sure to make a backup of your important data! The iSync 1.0 Beta is a free 6.9 MB download, and requires Mac OS X 10.2.1. [JLC]
