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.

Mellel 3.3

Send Article to a Friend

RedleX has released Mellel 3.3 with a wealth of new features, plus a number of bug fixes. The word processing app gains a new comments feature, which can be exported to rich text format and Microsoft Word .doc format and then imported back (saved as an RTF file). The update also significantly enhances the app’s Find and Replace capabilities, including the addition of a list of recent searches and easier ways to save Find Expressions and Find Actions. Mellel 3.3 also overhauls the Find Set dialog (which collects the search and replace Find Actions macros) to make it more useful. (For more information on these new features, be sure to read this blog post.) Other changes include improved font matching with RTF import, smarter auto titles, improved rendering of table of contents, and automatic crash reporting. ($39 new from RedleX and the Mac App Store, free update, 100 MB, release notes)
