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.

Mellel 3.0.2

Send Article to a Friend

RedleX has released Mellel 3.0.2, a maintenance release brimming with fixes for the word processing app. Highlights include fixes for an issue that caused the app to freeze occasionally when entering the version browser, a problem that caused some characters to appear doubled in the final citation after a bibliography scan, an issue that caused the document view to stick to the left when moving the window from screen to screen, and a problem that caused the Spotlight importer to malfunction under OS X 10.8 Mountain Lion. The release also groups palettes in a single “heap” when viewing on smaller screens (such as the 11-inch MacBook Air) and updates the application icon. ($39 new, free update, 34.9 MB, release notes)
