The new version of ProVUE's Panorama lacks updated documentation, so it's billed as a "preview." The lightning-fast, RAM-based database application (used by Matt - see "Seeing the Light with Panorama," 19 November 2001 - and Adam - see "When You Need a Panoramic View," 14 March 2005) is now even lightning-faster because it runs natively on Intel-based Macs. Some older parts of the interface have been heavily revamped to appeal to new users. Automatic data recovery after a crash, and the capability to revert easily to recently saved versions of your data, will encourage confidence and experimentation. Release notes and an introductory video are available; the unlicensed trial version limits your database to 250 records. ($299, $139.95 upgrade, 51.6 MB)
Track Changes Dates Reset on Save As in Word 2008
If you regularly use the Save As feature to create new drafts while working in Word 2008, you might notice that with Track Changes enabled, previously time-stamped comments and edits have their times reset to the Save As date and time. Work around this by sticking with your original file, but using Save As (or just File > Duplicate in the Finder) to make backup copies.

I'm particularly looking forward to being able to hide columns, since we receive a lot of data (from eSellerate, for instance) that has columns we don't use. I don't want to massage every month's import to delete those columns, but I also don't want to see them in the standard display when I'm working.
