Ambrosia’s Snapz Pro X screen capture utility gets updated to version 2.5.1 with a fix to a positioning problem that Adam Engst called out in his recent write-up to the screen capture utility’s update to version 2.5 (see “Snapz Pro X 2.5 Finally Makes Nice with Mountain Lion,” 16 November 2012). The new release now properly remembers the selection position on multiple monitors. Other fixes include improved hotkey handling, removal of an incomplete Italian localization, and changes to the installer to address some instances of failed installations.

Copy Before Submitting Web Forms
Filling in Web forms (like the one used to submit this tip) can be a bit of a gamble - you put in your pearls of wisdom, perhaps only to lose them all if the Web page flakes out or the browser crashes. Instead of losing all your text, "save" it by pressing Command-A to select all and then Command-C to copy the selected text to the clipboard. Do this periodically as you type and before you click Submit, and you may "save" yourself from a lot of frustration. It takes just a second to do, and the first time you need to rely on it to paste back in lost text, you'll feel smart.
