Move the Dock Quickly

You may find it convenient to move the position of the Dock when working in certain programs or with certain files. Rather than choosing a different position from the Dock preferences pane or using a submenu in the Apple menu's Dock submenu, you can move your Dock to a different screen edge merely by Shift-dragging the separator that divides the application and document sections.

Power Mac Office 4.2x Update Update

Send Article to a Friend

Power Mac Office 4.2x Update Update -- In TidBITS-289, I reported on questions and quirks relating to the Office 4.2x Update for Power Mac. In the article, I said that Office 4.2x Update for Power Mac, version n/a, has been updated to version 1.01. A few people wrote in asking about Office 4.2x Update for Power Mac 1.0, which may be installed from the Office CD. My contacts at Microsoft have confirmed that version 1.0 is the same as version n/a, so if you have version 1.0 and use either the Global Village Toolbox extension or STF Technologies's FAXstf software, you should replace version 1.0 with version 1.01.

Microsoft has posted the Office 4.2x Update for Power Mac incorrectly, such that you must download it in binary mode. Try downloading the cryptically named file from the URL below using Netscape (which downloads most everything in binary mode), or try using Fetch, which has a Binary button that can force a binary download. Otherwise, configure your FTP client to treat the file suffix ".hqx" as a binary file, and be sure to change the setting back when you're done. [TJE]
