Untrash the Trash

Feeling trasher's remorse? On Snow Leopard, you can open the Trash (click the Trash icon in the Dock) and "untrash" individual items there. Select one or more trashed items (files and folders) and choose File > Put Back. This returns the items to where they were when you originally put them in the trash. The keyboard shortcut is Command-Delete - the same as the shortcut for trashing an item in the first place, since in deleting something from the trash you are untrashing it.

Mellel 3.2

Send Article to a Friend

RedleX has released Mellel 3.2 with the addition of hyperlinks and enhanced language support. The word processor now enables you to link to a Web page, email address, or a local file, and it produces live, clickable hyperlinks in Word, RTF, and PDF exports. It also adds options for searching for and within hyperlinks using the Find panel. The new language improvements enable you to set a language within a style, as well as switch spelling dictionaries with or without language synchronization. Other changes include improved support for TextExpander auto-capitalization, added capability for assigning the default template in the Templates browser, support for Retina displays, returned baseline support for Math Magic, and a fix for an issue where the insertion point would disappear next to a wrappable inline image. ($39 new from RedleX and the Mac App Store, free update, 105 MB, release notes)
