Access OpenType Font Features

OpenType fonts (.otf) often have special features, such as swashes and alternate characters, that are accessible in any app that uses the OS X font panel, including Pages and TextEdit. To access them, type and select your text, press Command-T to open the font panel, and then choose Typography from the Actions pop-up menu. That shows the Typography panel, where you can toggle available options for the font and characters you've selected.

Audio Hijack Pro 2.10.7

Send Article to a Friend

Rogue Amoeba has released Audio Hijack Pro 2.10.7, which fixes a crash that would occur if the source application was quit while audio was being captured. The app should also now avoid crashes caused by large artwork. Plus, the update ensures that the Add to iTunes as Bookmarkable script works as advertised, works around an issue with iTunes versions 11.0.0 and 11.0.1 that would prevent some AIFF files from being read, improves the way WAV tags are written, and corrects an issue with where Audio Hijack Pro would trigger the discrete graphics processing mode in some laptops. Finally, overall audio capture reliability has been improved, and the Instant On component is updated to version 6.0.3 to fix several issues (including one related to the Amarra iTunes plug-in). ($32 new with a 20-percent discount for TidBITS members, free update, 5.6 MB, release notes)
