MacSpeech has released a minor maintenance update to its transcription software MacSpeech Scribe. Version 1.1 fixes a pesky bug that prevented users from closing the File Open window after completing a transcription. The update also adds support for volume licensing. To learn more about MacSpeech Scribe, see Matt Neuburg's recent review, "Transcribe Recordings With MacSpeech Scribe," 19 May 2010. ($149.99 new, free update, 8.8 MB)
Find Next Without Using the Find Dialog in Word 2008
Rarely do you want to find just one instance of a word or phrase in Word. Instead of trying to keep Word 2008's Find and Replace dialog showing while searching, which can be awkward on a small screen, try the Next Find control. After you've found the term you're looking for once, click the downward-pointing double arrow button at the bottom of the vertical scroll bar to find the next instance of your search term. The upward-pointing double arrow finds the previous instance, which is way easier than switching to Current Document Up in the expanded Find and Replace dialog.
