Flexibits has released Fantastical 1.2, an update that brings a number of improvements to their popular calendar utility. Enhancements in this release include improved entry of recurring events using natural language, dimming of timed events that have already occurred, automatic URL detection when entering an event, and display of event end times in the event list. The update is rounded out by localization for French, German, Italian, and Spanish languages and various bug fixes. ($19.99 new from Flexibits or the Mac App Store, free update, 8.7 MB, release notes)
Stylin' a Word Comment Balloon
If you work with Word's Comment feature, you may find that the comment-balloon text is too small to work with, or you may just want some variety. To modify the style, choose Format > Style. From the List pop-up menu, choose All Styles. Select Balloon Text from the Style list. Modify the style as you like, and then click Apply. I like Arial Narrow, 12 point.
