Show Recent Items in Snow Leopard

The Recent Items submenu in the Apple menu is handy, but what if you want to work with a file in there in the Finder, rather than open it? Just press Command when that menu is showing, and all the Applications and Documents change to "Show ... in Finder." This feature is new as of Mac OS X 10.6.3 Snow Leopard.

Comments about FileMaker Pro 12.0.3

Why does Filemaker look (and act) like a crappy Windows app? I can't believe this is an Apple product. There is nothing Apple-like about it. I'm stuck with it at my work but wish we had a better alternative.
