Access OpenType Font Features

OpenType fonts (.otf) often have special features, such as swashes and alternate characters, that are accessible in any app that uses the OS X font panel, including Pages and TextEdit. To access them, type and select your text, press Command-T to open the font panel, and then choose Typography from the Actions pop-up menu. That shows the Typography panel, where you can toggle available options for the font and characters you've selected.

If you have a bunch of older Take Control ebooks the sale is a great way to update to new editions efficiently and with excellent savings. If you have an older ebook (so long as it's not one of the very oldest Panther titles), you can click Check for Updates on the cover -page 1 - to investigate if there's a new edition. There also might be a free minor update or other update info available via Check for Updates.
