New Documents in Snow Leopard's TextEdit

In the Snow Leopard version of TextEdit, you can now create a new document by Control-clicking TextEdit's Dock icon (when it's running), and choosing New Document from the pop-up menu. This isn't a major feature, of course, since you can also just press Command-N while in TextEdit, but consider Control-clicking other applications' Dock icons to see what functions they might make available.

PageMistake -- In TidBITS-317 I reported Adobe had released an updater that upgrades PageMill from 1.0 to 1.0.1. I also reported some users of the update were experiencing color shifts in graphics edited through PageMill. Adobe has decided the color shift problem is severe enough to warrant a recall and has withdrawn the update. Adobe hopes to release a corrected version 1.0.2 in a few weeks. Although the problem appears to happen only on 68K Macs (and usually only if you have more than 256 colors showing onscreen), Adobe's engineers are not convinced it couldn't happen on a Power Mac. Remember, if you use 1.0.1 and experience a color shift in an open image, do not save your file, or the shift will be saved in the image. [TJE]
