AgileBits has released 1Password 4.0.5 with a couple of tweaks to make it easier to upgrade from 1Password 3, as well as a variety of other improvements and fixes. The update to the password management utility enhances clipboard interoperability with Carbon apps (such as BBEdit), sorts items within folders in 1Password mini, displays a message if 1Password is locked and attempting to quit with unsaved changes, fixes a problem with importing data from LastPass, and squashes a bug with folder syncing in Wi-Fi sync. The Mac App Store version also fixes an issue where Dropbox might not be detected immediately and a problem where changes in the master password did not sync to Dropbox. ($49.99 new from AgileBits and the Mac App Store, free update for those with a 1Password 4 license, 36.7 MB, release notes)
Extend Mac OS X's Screenshots
Mac OS X has a variety of built in screenshot methods. Here's a look at a few that offer more versatility than the basic full-screen capture (Command-Shift-3):
• Press Command-Shift-4 and you'll get a crosshair cursor with which you can drag to select and capture a certain area of the screen.
• Press Command-Shift-4-Space to select the entire window that the cursor is over, clicking on the window will then capture it. The resulting screenshot will even get a nice drop shadow.
• Hold down the Space bar after dragging out a selection window to move your selection rectangle around on the screen.
• Hold down Shift after dragging out a selection to constrain the selection in either horizontal or vertical orientation, depending on the direction of your drag.
• Hold down Option after dragging out a selection to expand the selection window around a center point.
