Open URLs Quickly from BBEdit

If you're working on a bit of text (HTML or otherwise) in BBEdit, and you see a URL that you'd like to open, the fastest way is to Command-click it. Most BBEdit users probably already know this tip, but if you don't, it's a huge time-saver. (The same trick works in BBEdit's free little brother, TextWrangler.)

 
 

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?)
