Amidst an onslaught of updates geared toward Mountain Lion, Apple has released iMovie ’11 9.0.7 with nary a mention of the big cat. Instead, the update focuses on improving overall stability with fixes for preventing a crash that could be caused by third-party QuickTime components, previewing MPEG-2 video clips in the Camera Import window, and not including audio when importing MPEG-2 video clips from a camera. It also bundles in the improvements — including support for the MacBook Pro with Retina Display — found in the last update (see “iMovie ’11 9.0.6,” 13 June 2012). ($14.99 new from the Mac App Store, free update through Software Update or the Mac App Store, 1.01 GB)
Avoid Long Hierarchical Menus
If you right-click (or Control-click) on some item, such as a file in the Finder, and one of the sub-menus has many options (Open With is a frequent culprit), it may take several seconds to open, even on a fast machine, which is annoying if you did not actually want that sub-menu.
The trick is to not pull the cursor through the menu, but in a curve around it, so the cursor does not touch any menu items until lower on the list where you wanted to go.
