Open Files with App Switcher

Using the Application Switcher to open files can sometimes be faster than hunting for an Application's window or searching through a jam packed Dock for an Application's icon. First grab your file, press Command-Tab, and then drop the file onto the desired application's icon to open it within that program.

Fission 2.1.2

Send Article to a Friend

Rogue Amoeba has released Fission 2.1.2 with a fix for a bug that made it seem that the audio editing app was hanging while exporting and transcoding — even while the app was indeed diligently working away. The update improves the Start window’s memory of the state of things as well as the app’s memory of previous settings for saving and exporting. Additionally, the app improves the VoiceOver controls, corrects some issues related to re-encoding audio, improves reading of chapterized AAC files, resolves a conflict with the window-managing Moom app, fixes an issue where the Mac App Store version would fail to save to a previously specified location, and makes progress bars appear more reliably during export. ($32 new with a 20-percent discount for TidBITS members, free update, 11.5 MB, release notes)
