View Extra Audio Details in Snow Leopard

In Snow Leopard, Option-clicking the Volume icon in the menu bar displays a list of sound input and output devices. Choose one to switch to it; it's much easier than using the Sound preference pane. Also, hold Shift and click the icon to set the system volume, which is separate from the general output volume.

Yojimbo 3.0.4

Send Article to a Friend

Bare Bones Software has released Yojimbo 3.0.4, a maintenance update that adds no new features but instead fixes a crash that occurred when displaying certain Web archives in OS X 10.8 Mountain Lion, a problem that prevented pairing with an iPad running the Yojimbo iPad app, and a bug that caused drawing glitches and crashes when displaying a PDF. The update also enables you to choose a new export folder if the Sidekick export folder isn’t available at launch or to turn Sidekick off completely, adjusts the PDF importer to adhere to a “slightly less-strict” interpretation of the PDF header format, and removes references and mechanics related to MobileMe synchronization. ($38.99 new, free update, 5.6 MB, release notes)
