ChronoSync Secret Menubar Shortcut

For a quick way to run a ChronoSync document without opening it, use the ChronoSync menu in the menubar. Select "Show ChronoSync menu in menubar" in ChronoSync's General Preferences window to activate the menu bar menu. Once activated, you'll see the ChronoSync circling arrows icon in the menu bar, at the top right of your screen.

You can open any scheduled ChronoSync document directly from the menu bar. If you hold down the Option key while selecting a ChronoSync document, the synchronization will run immediately without the ChronoSync document opening.

TidBITS Editors on Video from Macworld | iWorld

Send Article to a Friend

The TidBITS staff had a busy time at Macworld | iWorld meeting, greeting, and eating. We also spent a fair amount of time on the Macworld Live Stage on the show floor. If you missed our appearances, or weren’t able to make it to San Francisco at all, you can now watch us online in various appearances:

  • A large percentage of the TidBITS and Take Control staff and authors appeared to talk about ebook publishing and the future of print with Macworld’s Chris Breen moderating. Be sure to check out Adam’s Vibram Five Fingers, which continue to attract attention every year and which he maintains are the most comfortable shoes he has ever worn for the notoriously foot-destroying trade show. Oh, and don’t miss the decades of valuable experience shared by these long-time publishing industry experts!

  • Jeff Carlson made his first appearance in the Macworld Pundit Showdown, which pits four contestants against the wit and guile of Philip Michaels scoring for arbitrary points. Watch for the surprise ending!

  • Macworld’s Lex Friedman asked a panel of software developers and writers, including Glenn Fleishman, about the software programs they love and the flaws in them that should be fixed.

  • Glenn also appeared in a live version of The Incomparable, a geeky podcast (videotaped for the first time) about books, comics, TV, and more. The panel looked at depictions of tech in geeky fiction, mostly movies, both accurate and, shall we say, highly flawed.

  • Tonya Engst discusses raising children in the age of screentime as part of the “Parenting in the Mobile Internet Age” panel discussion from Macworld | iWorld 2012, moderated by Chuck Joiner of MacVoicesTV.
