Spin Through Toolbar View Options

Although many people never change their toolbars from the default settings, all standard toolbars on the Mac offer six states: icon only, text only, and icon and text, with all three coming in normal and small size. You can change them by choosing View > Customize Toolbar.

But there's a shortcut that makes it easier to check out each variant. Simply Command-click the toolbar lozenge at the upper right of a window, and the toolbar switches to the next view. Click it enough times, and you cycle back to the start.

Send Article to a Friend

Econ Technologies has released ChronoSync 4.3 and ChronoAgent 1.3, both major updates that feature extensive refinements to the link between the synchronization/backup application and its remote helper app. New features for ChronoSync include using SSL encryption when connecting to ChronoAgent 1.3, the capability to change the target folder/volume without losing state information from previous synchronizations, custom sync target names, and a function for restoring previously synchronized files. In addition to gaining SSL support over multiple platforms, ChronoAgent has been updated to better handle multiple, simultaneous connections. Additionally, both titles are updated with Spanish, Portuguese, and Brazilian Portuguese localizations. Full release notes for ChronoSync and ChronoAgent are available. ($40 new for ChronoSync, $10 new for ChronoAgent; free updates; 29 MB, 8.1 MB)
