Option-Click in Scroll Bars for Jump Scrolling

In Mac OS X in general, and thus in most native Mac OS X applications, hold down the Option key and click anywhere in a window's scroll bar to jump to that spot (rather than scrolling one screen). If you like this behavior, you can make it the default in the Appearance preference pane. For "Click in the scroll bar to:" select "Jump to here."

 
 

MacGourmet 3.0.1

Send Article to a Friend

MacGourmet 3.0 has been released by Advenio and MacGourmet Deluxe 3.0 by Mariner Software (the latter is the same program, bundled with MacGourmet's optional $9.95 Cookbook, Mealplan, and Nutrition plug-ins). MacGourmet 3.0 features a completely revamped interface, including greater control over marking recipes made, flagged, starred, and more in the summary view, along with new themes and greater flexibility in theme appearance. Among other changes, the recipe editor now allows for images within the preparation steps and for one recipe to be an ingredient within another. Chef view (the full screen mode to use while actually cooking) now supports voice and the Apple Remote, and can read recipes aloud to you. The recipe import assistant, one of MacGourmet's most powerful features, can now import from any Web site. Finally, recipe scaling no longer changes the original recipe. The 3.0.1 update adds several new themes, fixes crashes when importing from AllRecipes.com, and addresses a number of other bugs. Advenio also makes an iOS app called MacGourmet touch that syncs with the desktop version of MacGourmet. (MacGourmet 3.0: $29 new, $10 upgrade, free updates for purchases after 1 July 2010, 12.7 MB. MacGourmet Deluxe 3.0: $49.95 new, $24.94 upgrade, $34.95 sidegrade, 26.5 MB. MacGourmet touch: $4.99 new.)
