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.

Send Article to a Friend

In addition to releasing Mac OS X 10.6.3 (see "Mac OS X 10.6.3 Update Delivers Range of Fixes," 29 March 2010), Apple has incorporated that update's security fixes into Security Update 2010-002 for Mac OS X 10.5 Leopard owners. It corrects dozens of vulnerabilities related to maliciously crafted files, Web sites, and email messages, and also updates many core components (such as PHP and MySQL) to make them more robust against potential attacks. The update requires Mac OS X 10.5.8 and is available via Software Update or as a standalone download: Security Update 2010-002 (Leopard-Client) (78.39 MB) and Security Update 2010-002 (Leopard-Server) (361.4 MB).
