BusyMac has released BusyCal 2.5.3 with fixes for a variety of unspecified bugs related to OS X 10.9 Mavericks. The calendar app also adds support for managed attachments and time zones by reference on iCloud and other CalDAV Servers, adds a search filter to the time zone dialog (and remembers recently used time zones), fixes a bug with lowercase logins on iCloud, deals with some Google sync-collection and Google Inbox bugs, disables the swiping gestures on Apple’s Magic Mouse when hovering over an info panel, improves the sorting of To Dos, and enables the display of two holidays per day (which should help with the overlap of Thanksgiving and the first day of Hanukkah, both of which fall on 28 November this year). ($29.99 new from the Mac App Store, free update, 9.9 MB, release notes)
Find Text Leading from Acrobat PDF
Ever have to recreate a document from an Acrobat PDF? You can find out most everything about the text by using the Object Inspector, except the leading. Well, here's a cheesy way to figure it out. Open the PDF in Illustrator (you just need one page). Release any and all clipping masks. Draw a guide at the baseline of the first line of text, and one on the line below. Now, Option-drag the first line to make a copy, and position it exactly next to the original first line at baseline. Then put a return anywhere in the copied line. Now adjust leading of the copied lines, so that the second line of copy rests on the baseline of the second line of the original. Now you know your leading.
Or you could buy expensive software to find the leading. Your choice.
