Cull Graphics Quickly with Preview

You're faced with a folder full of images, and you need to sort through them, trashing some number and keeping the rest. For a quick way to do that, select them all, and open them in Preview (in Leopard, at least). You'll get a single window with each graphic as an item in the drawer. Use the arrow keys to move from image to image, and when you see one you want to trash, press Command-Delete to move it from its source folder to the Finder's Trash. (Delete by itself just removes the picture from Preview's drawer.)

 
 

Mellel 3.1.3

Send Article to a Friend

Offering a number of improvements and bug fixes, RedleX has released version 3.1.3 of its Mellel word processor. The update alters the document default scheme, making all new documents based on a default template or one that’s selected from the template browser. An option for selecting a default template was added to Mellel’s preferences, while default styles, background color, and other settings were removed. The update also changes the location for factory templates, keeping them with the app bundle rather than copying them to the ~/Library/Application Support folder in order to improve future template updates. Other changes include support for Retina displays, an improved look for the track changes annotation pane, enhanced control of bibliography and citation text formatting options, and improved language support. Mellel 3.1.3 also fixes an issue that caused the app to hang when opening pre-3.0 documents, assigns current text language when creating a footnote or citation, fixes an issue that caused dragged tabs and margins in the ruler to jump to unexpected places, and ensures that superscripted or baseline-shifted characters don’t get clipped at the top of a page. ($39 new, free update, 93.8 MB, release notes)

Unless you bought Mellel on the App Store in which case you'll have to wait a month or two for this version. I'm still on 3.1.0!

Update: 3.1.3 now available on the app store. (What happened to 3.1.1 and 3.1.2?)
