Cultured Code has upgraded its task management software Things to version 1.4.1, hot on the heels of the 1.4 release. Things 1.4 dramatically improved synchronization speed (between the desktop software and the iOS apps), and also let users select different font sizes, reorder projects, and adjust more settings when creating new to-dos via the Quick Entry dialog. Issues with printing layouts and bulk-removing delegates have also been addressed. The 1.4.1 release corrects an issue with the initial 10.4 update that prevented Quick Entry from working on Mac OS X 10.5 Leopard. ($49.95 new, free update, 8.3 MB)
Extend Mac OS X's Screenshots
Mac OS X has a variety of built in screenshot methods. Here's a look at a few that offer more versatility than the basic full-screen capture (Command-Shift-3):
• Press Command-Shift-4 and you'll get a crosshair cursor with which you can drag to select and capture a certain area of the screen.
• Press Command-Shift-4-Space to select the entire window that the cursor is over, clicking on the window will then capture it. The resulting screenshot will even get a nice drop shadow.
• Hold down the Space bar after dragging out a selection window to move your selection rectangle around on the screen.
• Hold down Shift after dragging out a selection to constrain the selection in either horizontal or vertical orientation, depending on the direction of your drag.
• Hold down Option after dragging out a selection to expand the selection window around a center point.
