Open a Finder Window with the App Switcher

If you don't have any Finder windows open and want to switch to the Finder and open a window in one fell swoop, bring up the app switcher with Command-Tab and tab over to the Finder icon. While still holding down Command, press the Option key, and then release the Command key. You're switched to the Finder, with a new default window open for you.

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 Adobe has decided the color shift problem is severe enough to warrant a recall and has withdrawn the update.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]
