Open URLs Quickly from BBEdit

If you're working on a bit of text (HTML or otherwise) in BBEdit, and you see a URL that you'd like to open, the fastest way is to Command-click it. Most BBEdit users probably already know this tip, but if you don't, it's a huge time-saver. (The same trick works in BBEdit's free little brother, TextWrangler.)

Smile has released PDFpen and PDFpenPro 5.2.4, which come very hot on the virtual heels of 5.2.3. New in 5.2.3 was AppleScript support for creating PDFs from HTML (in the Pro edition only), as well as a fix for an issue with performing Correct Text after saving a document. The subsequent 5.2.4 release corrected scripting functionality unintentionally broken with 5.2.3. ($59.95/$99.95 new, free update, 41 MB)

This a great application even though Preview has improved, permitting you to rearrange the pages in a PDF and even access your scanner. It is faster and more agile than Adobe's Acrobat.
