New StyleWriter 1200 Drivers -- Owners of the StyleWriter 1200 as well as the original StyleWriter and StyleWriter II might be interested in version 2.0 of the StyleWriter 1200 printer driver. The new driver adds the ability to print multiple thumbnail pages on a sheet, choose between halftoning methods or greyscale printing, share the printer over an AppleTalk network, and print watermarks. This update requires System 7.1 or higher and a Macintosh with a 68020 processor or better. [GD]
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.
