See All Your Books in iBooks

The iBooks app for iOS lets you assign your books to different collections, but does not have any obvious way for you to see all of your books, regardless of the collection you have put them in. There is, however, a workaround that can show you just about all of your books at once: reveal the search field at the top of any collection in iBooks and type a single space into that field.

With this search, iBooks lists all of the books that have a space either in the title of the book or in the author's name. Other than the rare book that has a one-word title and a single-name author, you end up with a list of all of your books.

PopChar X 6.1

Send Article to a Friend

Ergonis Software has brought a sprinkling of new features to the font discovery utility PopChar X 6.1, including a new Font Info view that displays details such as version number, supported language, number of characters and glyphs, copyright, info about the designer, and more. The update also provides custom tuning for more than 600 fonts (including the BeLight Font Kit and some foreign language fonts), which also includes tuning to fix the vertical positioning of certain non-standard fonts. Additionally, PopChar X now remembers selected fonts after quitting or relaunching, and it initiates background version checks only when your Mac has been idle for some time. (€29.99 new, free update, €14.99 upgrade from version 5.x or earlier, 3.2 MB, release notes)
