Apple has released Logic Pro X 10.0 with a hefty list of new features, enhancements, and fixes for the professional audio app. The update adds 3 new Drummers and 11 new Drum Kit Designer patches, improves handling of multiple displays on OS X 10.9 Mavericks, improves Shuffle commands, and illuminates the glyph on the Metronome button when Logic is stopped or in Play mode to indicate that “Click while recording” is enabled. The release also make several enhancements to the Channel EQ and Linear Phase EQ plug-ins. For a complete rundown on the massive changes in Logic Pro X 10.0.5, be sure to read the release notes (we recommend carving out some time in your calendar before doing so).

Close Word Comments Easily
If you don't like how precisely you must mouse in Microsoft Word 2008 to delete comment balloons, note that you can Control-click (right-click) a balloon to pop up a contextual menu. From the menu choose Delete Comment, and you're done.
Also, to get rid of all comments at once, choose Tools > Customize Keyboard and set up a keyboard shortcut to go with the DeleteAllComments command, available in the Tools category. Oddly, there's no Delete Comment keyboard customization option that I can find.
