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)
Type an em-dash on an iPhone
Typography and punctuation geeks rejoice! It's easy to type an em-dash on the iPhone's or iPod touch's virtual keyboard. To do so, tap the .?123 key to switch to the numeric keypad. Then touch and hold on the Hyphen key to reveal a pop-up strip showing an em-dash. Slide to the em-dash and release your finger.
Note that this basic trick works with many other keys on the virtual keyboard.
