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.

Nisus Writer Pro 2.0.5 and Express 3.4.4

Send Article to a Friend

Addressing a large number of niggling issues and incorporating a few minor enhancements, Nisus Software has released Nisus Writer Pro 2.0.5 and Nisus Writer Express 3.4.4 to the applause of grateful Take Control writers and editors. Nisus Writer Pro fixes a bug with exported EPUBs that produced validation errors if the file contained multiple chapters, resolves a hang caused by competing TOC inclusion instructions, adds numerous macro enhancements (including the capability to run macros when clicked), and fixes a variety of issues related to indexing. Both the Pro and Express editions add the capability to use aliases when inserting a link to a file or image that will resolve if the target is moved or renamed, as well as fix bugs related to inline spellchecking, creating PDFs, and printing, and incorrectly creating a new blank document when opening an existing document. (For Nisus Writer Pro: $79 new, free update, 178 MB, release notes. For Nisus Writer Express: $45 new, free update, 51 MB, release notes.)
