Extend Mac OS X's Screenshots

Mac OS X has a variety of built in screenshot methods. Here's a look at a few that offer more versatility than the basic full-screen capture (Command-Shift-3):

• Press Command-Shift-4 and you'll get a crosshair cursor with which you can drag to select and capture a certain area of the screen.

• Press Command-Shift-4-Space to select the entire window that the cursor is over, clicking on the window will then capture it. The resulting screenshot will even get a nice drop shadow.

• Hold down the Space bar after dragging out a selection window to move your selection rectangle around on the screen.

• Hold down Shift after dragging out a selection to constrain the selection in either horizontal or vertical orientation, depending on the direction of your drag.

• Hold down Option after dragging out a selection to expand the selection window around a center point.

CodeWarrior 7 Set To Ship

CodeWarrior 7 Set To Ship -- Eric Gundrum <eric@macgroup.com> writes:

Sources close to Metrowerks report that the CodeWarrior 7 CD has just gone into production and is expected to begin shipping to registered users 18-Sep-95. CodeWarrior 7 includes the final release version of CodeWarrior 1.3, which no longer uses different applications for building Power Mac and 68K Mac applications. App-building functionality is integrated into one IDE (Integrated Development Environment) application, and debugging tools have been similarly integrated. Other features include new PPC 603 and 604 code optimizers and plug-in compiler technology. Plug-ins enable Metrowerks to ship updates to individual compilers without forcing users to download the full application. The two-CD set has been completely reorganized, with all the reference material on one CD in Acrobat and QuickView formats, with the development tools assembled on the second CD.
