Go Back and Forth Fast in Preview

If you're reading a PDF in Apple's Preview software, and you follow a bookmark or an internal link to move around within the PDF, you can quickly return to where you were by pressing the keyboard shortcut Command-[ (that's Command-Left Bracket). Or, you can choose Go > Back.

The command works iteratively, so you can go back to just the previously viewed page or if you issue the command again, to the page before that, and so on. There's also an equivalent Go > Forward (Command-]).

Microsoft has updated Office 2011 to version 14.3.8, a maintenance release that’s focused solely on tightening security. According to the relevant security bulletin, the update addresses two privately reported vulnerabilities that could allow remote code execution with a specially crafted Excel file. It also notes that those who use Office 2011 with administrative user rights could be more impacted than those with more restrictive user permissions. (Free update via the Office for Mac Web site or through Microsoft AutoUpdate, 113 MB)

I see no posts from folks unable to update Office on Mountain Lion 10.8.5, but just in case I'm wasn't the only TidBITS reader who experienced that, I found this post:

I did an OS X Restore (a Command-R restart) and the update then installed (the Flash update, too).
