Marcel Bresink has released TinkerTool 4.9, updating his under-the-hood customization system utility to support OS X 10.8 Mountain Lion. The new release also adds a setting to disable the rubber band effect that occurs when scrolling beyond the end of a view in both Mountain Lion and 10.7 Lion, adds a setting to prevent unused applications from quitting automatically under Mountain Lion and Lion (covered more in depth by Matt Neuburg’s “Mountain Lion is (Still) a Quitter,” 2 August 2012), and enables TinkerTool’s icon to be replaced using the Finder.

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.
