Smile has updated both PDFpen and PDFpenPro to version 5.8.5 to add compatibility with OS X 10.8 Mountain Lion. Additionally, both releases fix an issue with scanning when running 10.7 Lion, as well as an issue where resampling at a lower resolution produced a larger saved file. Both updates are rounded out by other unnamed minor fixes and improvements. ($59.95/$99.95 new with a 20-percent discount for TidBITS members, free update, 40.7/41 MB)
Stop Eye Strain in Excel 2008
You can make text bigger in Excel by zooming to a larger percentage with the Zoom control in the toolbar, or by selecting the cells containing too-small text, choosing Format > Cells (Command-1), and then setting options in the Font pane. You can also increase the default font size for new sheets by modifying the Size field (next to the Standard Font field) in the General pane of Excel's preferences.
