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.

iMovie 10.0.1

Send Article to a Friend

Apple has released iMovie 10.0.1, which now enables the video editing app to be installed on some Macs with older video processing cards. The recently released iMovie 10.0 (see “New Free iLife and iWork Apps Share across Devices and Platforms,” 22 October 2013) required an OpenCL-capable video card when it was launched. iMovie 10.0.1 revises that requirement to include some older video cards — but Apple doesn’t specify which video cards may be compliant. The update also fixes a bug that caused iMovie to quit unexpectedly or stop responding when updating projects and events from previous versions of iMovie. ($14.99 new from the Mac App Store, free update, 1.94 GB)
