Option-Click in Scroll Bars for Jump Scrolling

In Mac OS X in general, and thus in most native Mac OS X applications, hold down the Option key and click anywhere in a window's scroll bar to jump to that spot (rather than scrolling one screen). If you like this behavior, you can make it the default in the Appearance preference pane. For "Click in the scroll bar to:" select "Jump to here."

 
 

Final Cut Pro X 10.1

Send Article to a Friend

Apple has released Final Cut Pro X 10.1 with an extra helping of improvements and fixes to prepare for the release of the new Mac Pro. The update optimizes playback and rendering when using the Mac Pro’s dual graphics processors, and it paves the way for using 4K monitors with added support for monitoring video on the ultra-high pixel displays as well as creating titles, transitions, and generators in 4K resolution. Final Cut Pro X 10.1 also now enables you to collect multiple projects and events into libraries (for more on transitioning projects and events to libraries, see this Apple support FAQ). The release also makes it easier to move clips with transitions in the timeline and lift them out of the Primary Storyline with transitions preserved, clips can now be trimmed completely out of a timeline when using the rolling trim function, and importing AVCHD video no longer results in 5.1-channel surround sound audio being mixed down to stereo. ($299.99 new in the Mac App Store, free update, 2.20 GB, release notes)
