Apple has released OS X Mountain Lion 10.8.2 Supplemental Update, a small update that addresses a few specific issues that weren’t large enough in scope to require a new version number. In particular, it fixes a problem that caused certain Japanese characters to appear incorrectly in Mail, fixes a crash with DVD Player, enables access to secure Web sites in Safari when parental controls are enabled, and fixes an issue that could prevent systems with more than 64 GB of RAM from starting up. (Free, 26.65 MB, available through the Mac App Store or direct download)
Find Text Leading from Acrobat PDF
Ever have to recreate a document from an Acrobat PDF? You can find out most everything about the text by using the Object Inspector, except the leading. Well, here's a cheesy way to figure it out. Open the PDF in Illustrator (you just need one page). Release any and all clipping masks. Draw a guide at the baseline of the first line of text, and one on the line below. Now, Option-drag the first line to make a copy, and position it exactly next to the original first line at baseline. Then put a return anywhere in the copied line. Now adjust leading of the copied lines, so that the second line of copy rests on the baseline of the second line of the original. Now you know your leading.
Or you could buy expensive software to find the leading. Your choice.

Groups in Contacts on an iMac display as before but when synching with iPhone 4 or iPad 2 do not display on the iOS device.
I called Apple support and they hadn't heard of any problem but on their Forums, there are several others complaining or wondering also.
Do you know anything about this?
It is not critical, but is very convenient to have groups in the address book, or contacts app.
