Copy Before Submitting Web Forms

Filling in Web forms (like the one used to submit this tip) can be a bit of a gamble - you put in your pearls of wisdom, perhaps only to lose them all if the Web page flakes out or the browser crashes. Instead of losing all your text, "save" it by pressing Command-A to select all and then Command-C to copy the selected text to the clipboard. Do this periodically as you type and before you click Submit, and you may "save" yourself from a lot of frustration. It takes just a second to do, and the first time you need to rely on it to paste back in lost text, you'll feel smart.

Send Article to a Friend

Noodlesoft has released Hazel 3.1.3 with a number of core and user interface changes to the file cleanup utility. The update features a number of fixes to the upload/connection code, including improved WebDAV support. The handling of symlinks and content matching with accented characters has also been fixed, as well as an infinite loop caused by formatting odd characters. User interface changes include the capability to set an initial folder for server browsing, the capability to enter a URL in the server field of the connection panel, additional VoiceOver labels, and a fix for actions that would not stick. ($28 new, free update, 7.7 MB, [release notes][*])
