Editing iCal Events in Snow Leopard

Snow Leopard makes looking at event details in iCal easier. In the Leopard version of iCal, you had to double-click an event to reveal only some information in a pop-up box; you then needed to click the Edit button (or press Command-E) to edit an item's information. In Snow Leopard, choose Edit > Show Inspector (or press Command-Option-I) to bring up a floating inspector that provides an editable view of any items selected in your calendar.

DEVONthink and DEVONnote 2.5.1

Send Article to a Friend

Following up from the recent update that brought database synchronization to its information management apps, DEVONtechnologies has released version 2.5.1 of all three editions of DEVONthink (Pro Office, Pro, and Personal) plus DEVONnote. The maintenance release improves the error messaging that advises you to verify databases in need of repair before synchronizing, gesture-based image zooming on OS X 10.8 Mountain Lion, and compatibility with Gatekeeper. All three editions of DEVONthink fix a bug that wrongly synchronized merged duplicate group tags, plus both DEVONthink and DEVONnote fix broken synchronization with the DEVONthink To Go iOS app. Finally, DEVONthink Pro Office improves recognition of duplicates when indexing certain email messages (multi-part MIME) and ramps down the frequency of web server authorization requests. (All updates are free. DEVONthink Pro Office, $149.95 new, release notes; DEVONthink Professional, $79.95 new, release notes; DEVONthink Personal, $49.95 new, release notes; DEVONnote, $24.95 new, release notes; 25-percent discount for TidBITS members on DEVONnote and all editions of DEVONthink)
