Two Shortcuts for App Exposé

If you want to see all the windows for a particular app via App Exposé, there are two hidden shortcuts. For either, start by pressing Command-Tab to bring up the app switcher. Then, while still holding down the Command key, press either the 1 key or the up arrow. That puts you into App Expose mode, with all of an app's windows showing, and recent documents in a row across the bottom of the screen. Let up on the Command key, and then you can press Tab to cycle through all the running apps.

Anarchie 1.6 Released

Send Article to a Friend

Anarchie 1.6 Released -- Peter Lewis <peter@stairways.com.au> has released version 1.6 of his popular Internet FTP client Anarchie. New in this version of Anarchie are Open Transport compatibility and a few interface enhancements (click the transfer indicator fields in the transfer progress windows, and almost everything in the About box is now hot) in addition to optional Simple Internet Version Control (SIVC). Spearheaded by Chris Johnson <chrisj@mail.utexas.edu> at the University of Texas, SIVC allows Peter to both have a rough idea of how many copies of Anarchie are in use and inform you of updates to Anarchie when new versions are available. (Chris has been using this technique with his MacTCP Monitor program for some time.) Participation is voluntary so as not to produce privacy concerns: if you're paranoid, just keep SIVC version checking turned off in Anarchie's preferences. This version of Anarchie also has several bug fixes and support for non-standard FTP ports. Anarchie is $10 shareware, and weighs in at a little over 600K.
