Find Next Without Using the Find Dialog in Word 2008

Rarely do you want to find just one instance of a word or phrase in Word. Instead of trying to keep Word 2008's Find and Replace dialog showing while searching, which can be awkward on a small screen, try the Next Find control. After you've found the term you're looking for once, click the downward-pointing double arrow button at the bottom of the vertical scroll bar to find the next instance of your search term. The upward-pointing double arrow finds the previous instance, which is way easier than switching to Current Document Up in the expanded Find and Replace dialog.

Aperture 3.3.1

Send Article to a Friend

After releasing Aperture 3.3 earlier this month, Apple has just posted Aperture 3.3.1, which “Fixes an issue that in rare cases could cause Aperture to hang or quit unexpectedly when upgrading libraries.” The Aperture 3.3 update was a major shift from previous versions, changing the photo library format so that it would work with Aperture and iPhoto interchangeably, and adding support for the new MacBook Pro with Retina Display. For the people who got hit by this bug (and we heard from some, so it couldn’t have been that rare), Aperture 3.3.1 should be a welcome update. ($79.99 new in the Mac App Store, free update, 554.9 MB)

Comments about Aperture 3.3.1

Tried to install 3.3.1 via software update after previously installing the 3.3 update. The 3.3.1 install took forever, so I forced quit software update, restarted to stop system from continuing to install the update, downloaded Aperature 3.3.1. from the Apple support page. It has been running overnight in the final stage of installation (Moving items into place). During that time, the listed install time remaining has increased from less than a minute to 1 hour and 6 minutes. It looks like the install will take forever. I let it run overnight because the support page says it can take a long time to convert the photo libraries to the new format.

Sounds like something isn't working. The conversion stage happens after you've installed, not during installation.
